I got a 28, too. And I had to guess on more than a few of them.

First of all, the documentary is superb. I've seen it three times, and I guess it's high time to give some credit for giving me the idea for the game.

The thing is, I probably never thought about Helvetica as a typeface before - it just was something that type looked like. After seeing the film I took a walk around the town and started to notice it all over. When I got back home I opened the Linotype Font Explorer and started making a list, which eventually became the prototype version of the font game.

The problem with the first draft was that it had some subpar fonts among the really good ones. Those were most likely the ones that most of you had to guess.

I've started working on the next release which will hopefully include all of the industry standard typefaces.

Thank you so much for making the documentary, and thank you for playing.
