Arcadical is a geometric sans serif display typface characterized by angled stems, counters, and terminals. It consists of 26 uppercase characters, 10 numerals, and 16 punctuation marks.
Born of a mid-life reminisce, this font was inspired by the arcade culture of the 80's. It was a time when game playing was done at an aracade rather than a game system or computer at home. It could be considered a mix of 80's pop with a major dose of heavy metal since it was a time when music defined fashion and behavior (and both were questionable, in retrospect). Like, totally.
