Manuscript Font???

#1 Posted by rmills87 (463 posts) -

Weird question - I am trying to find the name of the font used for the manuscript pages found in American Nightmare. I have been Googling my ass off, but can't seem to find an answer. I'll keep looking, but as of this post, can anyone offer a helping hand? If I can't find the answer through searching or this forum, I'll most likely just write a letter to Remedy. Figured I would start here! Thanks duders.

From an image I found, it looks like a standard typewriter font (akin to Courier etc.)

Try going to a site like dafont.com and choosing from one of the free fonts that will be similar. There'e even a section called "typewriter" under "fancy".

Only played the 1st game so far so I had to look up a image of American Nightmares Manuscript. Looking at the page i see it doesn't look like anything special, I was thinking Times, maybe Times New Roman. Here is the image I'm looking at, not sure If I'm looking at what your looking at.

I would just contact Remedy directly.

Yes, that is exactly what I am looking at. But you were thinking Times? I will take a look. Since posting this, I have in fact sent an email to Remedy to see if they could let me know. Thanks for your reply.

I can assure you that the above font is definitely not any of the Times family.

It's monospaced for a start.

You will definitely find something extremely similar at the link I posted previously.

Wow, I am so sorry - I looked right over your previous post. Thank you so much for that reference to dafont - totally awesome duder! I'll still wait to hear back from Remedy, but I am definitely going to start looking through these typewriter fonts. They are awesome!

My apologies also as, upon reflection, my reply does come across as a tad terse. I certainly didn't mean it to sound like quite so pointed. Hope you have success finding your fon...er, typeface.

I'm looking at this on my phone and the pic is tiny, but it looks like Trixie to me.

EDIT: Specifically Trixie Heavy.
