This font is tribute to the Norwegian band Gåte [WP], and inspired by the logo of the band.
This is my first non-pixel font. :-)
I'm not that happy with the "v" glyph (maybe I'll make the "v" look more like the "u". I've made an alternative "u" and "v" in the more latin place, but I guess that "u" breaks with the overall style).
I'm also not happy with the "z", "/", "%" and "\" glyphs, so I'm open to ideas, if anyone has any comments. (The rounded ends on the "/", "%" and "\" glyphs is not the best (zoom in to see it)).
Any better ideas on the name? One alternative is "riddle me this" ("Gåte" is norwegian for "riddle").
Any ideas for the "æ" and the "ø" glyphs?
I've made an alternative glyph for the number 6 (on the À glyph).
The height on the "e", "f", "s", and "x" glyphs should've been the same as the "a" glyph.
