@meek - Yes, Rob.

In early April 2012, I was asked to develop an "adventurey" / "medieval" type font for an upcoming game they were developing, which was "Quest For Infamy." While I haven't played the game yet (unfortunately I was too busy to help with the Beta testing), from the trailers and screenshots, I do know that the typeface is used in certain menus and mini-games. I believe it's also used when reading in-game books and texts as exposition...

Not only that, but I designed the main text font used throughout the game as well as designing the 'faux' copy-protection symbols, just like games from the 1990s would use. :^)

Awesome looking black letter style font. Can't believe I missed this when you originally did it!
