HAPéKAT, Oni's very own Happy MasKot

Xenotron is a family of fonts designed in 1995 by Cornelis "Kees" Gajentaan, a Video Games Artist and Happy Mascot Hunter. His font was used in Oni, most notably in splashscreens, but also in some in-game 2D art ("STAIRS" signs, "DC" decals...).

Xenotron was released under a "thankware" license, but Kees is not credited or mentioned in "Special Thanks", meaning that whoever brought this font to Bungie West either claimed authorship or got the font from a font repository and didn't bother looking up the author.

FunTower project (for Times Square; archived)
Other Artwork (other projects; the JavaScript for the "Other Artwork" portfolio is broken, unfortunately -- there was some cool stuff there)
Special mention for FunTower
It's a "vertical city" concept made of seven modular halls of seven floors each.
Unfortunately, the 3D data is unavailable... But the concept lives on, sorta ^_^
