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.

The Xenotron font was used in Oni, most notably in splashscreens, but also in some in-game 2D art ("STAIRS" signs, "DC" decals...)

Kees is neither credited explicitly nor 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.

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 ^_^
