Portal Testchamber Sign Font?

Post by nemesis11f » Thu Jul 09, 2009 14:06

Hello all,

I figured this would be the best place to come to ask this question. I'm working on making a huge poster for my dorm room, since my roomie and I are doing a whole Portal-themed thing this year- it's going to be fantastic. Anyways, I was wondering if anyone knew what font was used to create the numerals/text on those huge lit testchamber signs? I can't seem to find any info on it, and it looks an awful lot like one of the Swiss 9xx or 7xx fonts, but its appreciably thinner and more streamlined. Any help on this or pointers towards fonts would be really, really, really appreciated. Thanks a ton!

*Btw, I'm only intending to use this to be accurate in our tribute to the game, nothing commercial or anything like that.

This isn't a forum about Portal. It's just called Portal Forums I guess because it has links to other forums.

No, this is just the forum that deals with games in the Half-Life universe, Portal among them. Silly me, how could I ever have made that mistake?

He has a point, Gordon. Have you tried searching through www.dafont.com to see if there is a similar font? That is usually the best place. If not, Google?
