Which font do you prefer? 41 votes

User Feedback - New Font 7 0

As part of an ongoing effort to improve the aesthetics of the game within our limited budget/resources, I'm currently considering updating the font used on the site to be less bland. This would primarily be for headings, buttons, and possibly the menu, with the bulk text remaining in an easily-readible font. I've narrowed down a few potential candidates, and would like to see which is the most popular (at least among the people who bother to read this). It would be great if people could take a look at the following four potential fonts, and vote for their preferred one (or if you don't like any of them, say so in the comments).

Link to all four, allowing you to try different text and see it in each font: https://www.google.com/fonts#ReviewPlace:refine/Collection:Indie+Flower|Special+Elite|Audiowide|Orbitron

LOL Hippy? Hippy would be Indie Flower, which is much better than this silly looking star trek future font called Orbitron.
AudioWide best suited gaem. butwatevar.

The timestamp(of comment and other like it) is barely readable just like most of the smaller sized words in this new font.

I said it before, not a good choice for smaller sizes.

I just changed to audiowide.
Much better. :)

It's now possible to choose which of the 3 contenders you'd like to use. Sorry Duststorm but I'm not going to add an option for your silly hippy font :P

z78sabjan aka Massino it does not look terrible, but for me it is kinda gypsie...the impression I get is "oh look how modern catchy font, ugh why the rest site does not look modern, space age and laser?"
While Elite is not that slick and modern but it is badass devil may care font, which is closer to our concept I believe.

Orbitron seems to me as not much legible, too wide and squared.

the best would be to be able to select the candidates with a simple checkbox which would change the font everywhere, so we could see all of them in live.

i know most votes went to orbitron but i don't think it looks so good tbh

Why don't we use the rest as well for some period of time, till I convert more to Elite?

Orbitron is now in use for headings across the site. Providing there are no issues with missing characters etc, I'll look at where else it could be useful (again stressing it wont be used for main paragraph text).

These will be for heading and similar text, not paragraph text.

And for what you will use that font? I hope it won't be for paragraph text, any of these would be quite unreadable (use proxima nova or open sans for that, or leave helvetica n.). However, one of those fonts we are voting for, would be suitable for logo or headings (media article titles, company names and other h1,2,3 things).

AudioWide is nightclub font, special elite is post apocalyptic regime decay font.

@Metralla It does have that Top Secret burn while reading look.
But AudioWide seems like the right one, in my option.

Darkmyre just realized the Special Elite and the Orbitron doesn't contain extended characters which could cause problems in translations later.

Instead of Orbitron here's a free alternative:

Although i like "Orbitron" the most, i did choose another one.
Orbitron is less clear when using smaller size.

Eventually i choose "Audiowide"

hard to answer, personally i like #2 and #3 but it's another question how it looks when it's implemented
