    Hello, popular racing games (like CSR Racing) use a simple, easily readible and nice looking font for their buttons, text etc. I searched a lot, but couldn't find such a font for my racing game. Can anyone suggest a font similar to CSR Racing? (it is ok if it is not free)

    Thanks in advance..

    I cant decide on the font for you but perhaps it will help you:
    Google fonts is a really good site where you actually see the text in the font and can search many fonts.

    I was about to make the same recommendation. It's a great place for free, no-nonsense fonts.

    The font on CSR Racing is very similar to Helvetica Condensed.

    This might sound tough to do, but I would say, if possible, to create
    your own font style. Or find an artist friend or someone, who can make one
    for you.

    Stick to the most basic fonts because they are designed to be easily readable. Go with Sans Serif fonts.
    Check those you got on your machine first and check their licenses, quite some are usable for games. Experiment with different styles and font sizes and you will find one that suits you.
    Though fonts can look quite differently in Unity than they do in other programs, this makes things a little more complicated.

    Dafont.com is jammed packed with more “artistic” fonts. But it can be sketchy with right holders.
