Thanks, Nick! I removed the Zorque tag since it is a font created after the logo, so definitely not used by Infocom. Thanks for adding it your description, though — we’ll keep the link in there for those interested in similar typeface.
No problem, happy to post my first submission. Question: is there a reason the Wishbringer cover image doesn’t show as the profile pic? (Is it a rights thing?) Because I could take a picture of the cover on my end, I think it would be more recognizeable to someone searching 1980s, similar to your AD&D post which instantly made me a fan of Fonts In Use. What a great resource this site is!
Hi Nick, no, that was an arbitrary choice I made when moderating your submission. You are right, it makes more sense to use the cover — I’ve changed it. For the future: You can choose the thumbnail yourself. In Edit mode, click on the image in question and select “Edit Thumbnail”.

I made my own Infocom font based on a high resolution scan of their printed material.
