The Design Lab: Shoot that font

Back in the day, Comic Sans was known as one of the more basic and common fonts. It’s a comic-book inspired typeface created in the year 1994 for Microsoft.  Today, however, Comic Sans is a font now infamous for its overuse. Its usage in the business world has been disapproved by many professionals, even sparking a “Ban Comic Sans” movement in 2002.

If you’re one of the people who just can’t stand the sight of Comic Sans, thank ad agency AgencyFusion who released the Flash-based shooting game “Kill Comic Sans.” The game is a  fun, exciting, and of course challenging opportunity to finally murder the font yourself. Kill Comic Sans gives your one minute to shoot the font, which you can control the gun with your mouse or trackpad, and the best part is that you get infinite ammunition and no penalties for missing the floating word. All you need to do is focus, click the mouse as fast as you can, and have fun while finally getting rid of that darned font.
