These last few weeks I’ve been working on a new font for The Very Organized Thief as part of localization to support different languages in the future.
Our new font is called Pen Thief and is the font we’ll be using for the checklist, some of the game menus and a few other things.
It is also a replacement for the existing handwritten font we’ve been using, which is a licensed font. So to save ourselves the trouble with licensing and extending the previous font, we decided to design our own.
At the moment, Pen Thief only has standard characters, numbers, and symbols. However, I’m hoping to add support for other characters as we localize to different languages.
I’ve also done my best to retain the charm of the original font while trying to make it more readable for players. It still needs a bit of work, but I’m happy with how it’s looking.
And with that, The Very Organized Thief now has its own unique font that we can extend to support different languages.
As for what languages we’ll support, we’ll talk about that more in the future.
Expect more news to come.
