The Game-Changing Role of Fonts in Video Games

When it comes to video game design, every element counts, down to the font that spells out your high score. That’s why Goldhawk Interactive turned to YouWorkForThem to license the perfect font for their latest game, Xenonauts 2. Goldhawk Interactive was on the hunt for a font that could encapsulate the alternate Cold War history and alien invasion themes of Xenonauts 2 when used in the interface design. They found their match in Polar, a font that brings together industrial aesthetics and supreme legibility, making it ideal for a game interface.


Securing the Right License: More Than Just a Transaction

At YouWorkForThem, we understand that licensing a font for a video game is not a one-size-fits-all affair. We worked closely with Goldhawk Interactive to secure an App Extension License, along with Unlimited Video Use (Broadcast/Streaming extension) coverage. This comprehensive licensing ensures that Xenonauts 2 can reach a global audience without any font-related hiccups.



Gameplay and Synopsis: A Brief Look at Xenonauts 2

Inspired by X-COM: UFO Defense, the game challenges players to command soldiers against an alien invasion.
