Font phonies.

/Font phonies.

Apparently typeface piracy is a big thing. Who woulda thunk it?

True story: when I was a teenager, I made a font based on my own handwriting (or, well, the grunge lettering I used to be dArKeR aNd EdGiEr or whatever). It’s not a particularly good font (kerning? leading? what’s that bro?), but imagine my surprise when I went to play Vampire: Bloodlines a few years later and saw The Asylum for the first time. It’s not the same font, and honestly I doubt it’s related to my terrible scribble, but… still. It made me double-take to see it.
