Very nice work. 10/10

PS: What is the normal function of a dead rat? I'm just curious.

@frodo7: it's just a pun. i really enjoyed red dead redemption and this font looks kind of western style to me. Without going into great detail, it also have to do with the quotes author – a lot of stuff he said was a malfunction imo – but he is still kind of cool. so a more precise name for the font would be: „a dead rats malfunction“

LMAO - I am currently at 98.5% on Red Dead Redemption (second time around) and I still didn't get the pun :) Nice one.

Awesome! Excellent work.

Have you considered flipping the A around? Keep the little horizontal line on the left side like the other letters, but move the thickness to the right diagonal stroke. It doesn't matter, because this is still a brilliant font, but the stress is normally on the right stroke of the A on serif fonts.

Other than that, good work.
