Fantasy Font - Dwarf

$292

32

Empower your creativity with our dwarf font! Created in honor of the most beloved fantasy creatures, the mine-dwelling, and ax-wielding short heroes that the dwarves are. Whether you are a creator of books, games, applications, artworks, videos, films, websites or simply a fantasy fan, this font would definitely come handy when you are expressing your imagination!

The font was created with the most widespread fantasy dwarf tropes in mind. The letters, based on the Latin alphabet, are angular, resembling real runes while retaining a certain 'engineered' feeling, almost as if they had been cut of stone. If dwarves were real (they very well could be, maybe they live under your house), we are convinced they would use a writing system similar to our font.

Let us expand the font together to be usable in multiple languages, as well as money-related situations, after all, no one beats a dwarven merchant at haggling!

We are nearing the end of our campaign, and so, we have decided to put in extra work and create most of the pre-planned stretch goal special characters. Even though we have not reached these goals (yet), we want to make sure you will have the best possible experience using our font!

As this is our first typography project, it was more of an experiment for us and we are more than delighted to see our project getting funded by the community. We would like to express our gratitude by adding more than 50 new characters to the font, making it usable in multiple languages apart from English.

Every backer will receive this extended version of the font.

Our font is in an easy to use .TTF file (True Type Font). All major operating systems, text editor programs, and browsers support it. You just have to run the file on Windows 10 and your operating system will take care of the installation.

See how to install .TTF files on Windows, macOS and Linux:

Risks and challenges

This is the first font we have created, and our second project on Kickstarter, first non-gaming related. That being said, we have experience with art-related projects, and we are confident that you will find our smaller art projects as interesting as our games!
