Quoting vesa2, reply 5Please please please fix that font-from-the-80's before actual release. The game has plenty of good, some bad, but having oversized non-AA'd badly designed fontblast from the past is the only thing that I just can't handle in a modern game. After looking at the texts of the screenshots I had to actually go outside and breath some fresh air. Fffrggffr.
What are you talking about?
Some people are VERY particular about their fonts. I say this seriously and not in jest; I have encountered this several times in the board game world where there are some people who won't even purchase a game if the fonts violate their personal graphic design sensibilities. Comic-sans in particular really seems to set people off these days for example. Personally, I really don't care about fonts one way or the other, I'm in it for the gaming experience and the diversion.
That said however, I do agree that graphic presentation is still important, and despite having said that I'm in it for the gaming, nice graphics that fit the subject well will enhance the enjoyment. Now I'm not saying here that I find the fonts particularly troublesome in this game, but I also wouldn't be upset if they were changed to look a bit more fantasy/medieval themed. It might not hurt to throw some font choices out there for people to do a vote on to get some input on that. Or maybe the bigger question would be do enough people care about the fonts as they are now to even warrant worrying about it?
By the way, I really do like the new spellbook, cloth map, and new icons that I see here in the screenshots. I'm really looking forward to Beta 4.
