That's some pretty awesome job you've done here :D

To contribute a bit, here's the font used for some parts of the Khufu game (Used mostly for the cards, some parts of the instructions, some parts on the back of the box, etc.)

- Lithos Pro Bold : https://www.dafontfree.net/freefonts-li ... f46725.htm

Found it when I started working on my French translation of the game

I haven't checked out much of the Khufu game nor played it yet, but thanks for the discovery addition 8-)

I've missed this thread completely and I'm frankly shocked because I love messing with fonts. First off, great job!! I wish we could have had this list back when we used Creepy Girl for everything. x_X (seriously, go look at the old Other Side/WoF logos) Secondly the closest free equivalent to the DVD title font (Sava Pro Semibold) I've ever found is Tempus Sans ITC https://freefontsdownload.net/free-tempus-sans-itc-font-37465.htm which is what I used for the old Atmosfear Chronicles prank and later reused as the Well of Fears logo font... although I might splurge and pick up Sava for authenticity sake. If our logos mysteriously update one day, you'll know what happened.

Edit: There is a free version of Sava Pro, however: https://www.download-free-fonts.com/details/71997/sava-pro-semibold

Edit Again: Okay, maybe I won't be changing the website font anytime soon. But it was a fun experiment. (See below) Also that fourth one is not one of the fonts you guys linked to but an -alike font that I found that felt close enough without paying. https://www.ffonts.net/Black-Letter.font?text=Nightmare

Did we find the font used for the timer in the Soul Rangers expansion? I tried recreating it, but it's not perfect. Does it exist?

Oh, it's not that clumsy; really good imo because I found the original font (it's called Thunderbay, much more squashed down than how it appears on the tape) and it compares very favourably. I think I'll include the original AND your modified font on the Reddit archive post! :)

Okay that one has some small differences, but its pretty close to the real thing after some comparison.

The font archive on Reddit seems to have been removed after trying to access it, done by the work of a spam bot.

Did anyone ever find out the font used on this image? I'm talking above and below the Nightmare logo. I wanna say Jomolhari, the same font used for Harbingers.

EDIT: Did comparissons to the boxarts and it seems on the title screen, it is Jomolhari.
