Font used in King's Quest V: Absence Makes The Heart Go Yonder!, (C) 1990 Sierra On-Line.   Sierra Resource File Tag: "font.008" and is paired with the solid outline version of this font, "font.009".

The font was used for the opening credits and for a single phrase during gameplay:

• Instead of using the solid outline version font.009 for the opening credits, a drop-shadow effect was employed (recreated here in my new sample).

• It was used later in the game WITH the solid outline version font.009 for one single phrase: "A few hours later....." (occurring twice in the floppy disk version, but only once in the CD-ROM version).

Great font! (By the way, on Sierra Font 009 Clone (which will 403 when it sees me) there is a stray brick below J.)

@Hensley Dodson (Hensilly) - Thank you for the kind words.  I checked the J in font.009, but don't see any stray bricks (?)...

Oh, it's maybe on the H, I, or K.

There are none on the H, I, or K either…
