February was a good month for Cowgirls Vs Cthonimon. There were many art adjustments to sprites and tiles, and visual effects added that improve player feedback a lot. The UI has also finally been finalized – with everything where it should be. New music tracks and sound effects have been added to improve the mood, that will hopefully give Alpha players a much better idea about how the game will feel in the end.
On the font side, things have been fairly quiet with (almost) the entirety of my focus on Cowgirls. Having said that, this month saw a few milestones reached on dafont that I’d been wanting to crack for some time. I now have:
1. 100+ fonts up on dafont (the biggest font distribution site)
2. 10,000+ daily downloads
3. 2 million+ total font downloads (and rising fast!)
A font of mine was also used in Astotel’s recent advertising campaign – which was neat when I recognised it after it appeared in my inbox.
Just one new font for this month. I tried something a little different this time, including a solid color underlay font along with the main hollow font, giving users a clean fast route to “coloring in” their work. As always, you can find the font under Darrell Flood on dafont.
