A gnarled, pointy design which fits into many historical periods and aesthetics. It makes me think of Wild West woodtype and gargoyles.
A font which looks like a sea urchin, the eminent anemone enemy.
A 5x5 design inspired by trimarans, which are boats with three parallel hulls. A lot of these letters also look like tridents, nets, or fishing gigs - so, nautical theme it is!
Here at Marengi Omnisystems, we like to put a twist on the ordinary. Consider the plus sign. Normal plus signs have four termini. But, after dozens of minutes of modification, the plus sign can be transformed into myriad other shapes, all of which are even pointier than the original. Don't Worry, No Frankenplusses Here! These are actually organic, free-range, grass-fed plus signs that we chopped up and glued together. Don't you wish all stories could end so happily?
5x5 sunburst design. I think it can be made more legible, but I'm not sure if it can be done without sacrificing style...
My 200th Fontstruction! :^)
This font, especially the "M", has been kicking around in my mind for years. I wanted a design that looked "kinda like a Metroid". Then, I tried to Fontstruct it. That brings us to the present.
(This font has nothing to do with the "Gods Will Be Watching" video game. I just think the name Xenolifer has the right ring to it.)

A highly exclusive language used by Ashrians on Bysonce Island, Planet Ashr in my video game Endless Sea of Stars. This one is used for private documents and old government records, and its brother language Eudastiphos Hand is used for public court documents.
Zheyl the Voice of Declaration is the only one alive who knows how to write this language fluently, and one of the only ones who knows how to speak it at all. Well, except for me. :^)
Calystiphos Hand is much simpler than its brother language, despite looking much more complicated. Each glyph refers to highly specific concepts and so it is most used to record time-tested, factual information rather than stories or fiction. However, these glyphs can still be considered as runes, as each one is host to whole mysteriums of information and idiomatic knowledge which have been associated with it.
Bysoncians use a base-8 system of numeracy. 9 would thus be written as 81, 10 as 82, etc. There is no numeral 9.
Calystiphos is the Ashrian god of siroccos. The simplest way to put it is to say that he represents the "yin" of the pantheon.
This is a take on a classic arcade font with crowns and points. Best used for large type.
