Fonts are an important part of any digital design. With the prevalence of computers in everyday life, designers need to comprehend the basics of fonts to provide better services. For example, one can use fonts in online web design for headers and body texts.
Why are fonts so popular?
Fonts are used by many web designers to provide ease of readability for the end user. For example, an organization may use a sans-serif font for its website’s headers, because it is easier to read than the serif counterpart.
Cursed is a form of a black letter or Gothic typeface that is composed of thick and thin lines. Its creation has been either by hand or computer. It can be used in logos, posters, metal band album covers, movie titles and anything you can think of. It is usually difficult to read text with Cursed font due to its rugged appearance.
Unlike the normal flow of letters, which give off a smooth flow, Cursed letters are written in script to look rough and tough. Cursed is traditionally made either by cutting letters out of a thicker sheet of metal or plastic, or by using a drill to make them. For example, logos, posters, metal band album covers, movie titles and a lot of other things can be made using Cursed font.
In general, the difficult-to-read characteristic of the font prevents it from being used for lengthy pieces of text. Nowadays, Cursed typefaces are typically created with computer software. The Cursed font consists of various shades of the same color. Creating it comes easily since very little time is needed to create the entire alphabet in the script. The intended purpose of the Cursed font is to make a rough and rugged appearance.

The Cursed Font can be used in Flash games without any additional programming. For games that were not made in Flash, you can use the Cursed Font by renaming it to “Arial”. This works because Flash looks for the Arial font by default. For other fonts, you will need to edit the game.
Windows 10 Creators Update (and later)
As of Windows 10 Creators Update (Version 1703), the Cursed Font has been installed by default on all devices with a standard install of Windows 10. It is not known why Microsoft decided to distribute the font, but it may be an attempt to ensure that nobody else can distribute it.
OS X (If game is programmed into Flash)
The Cursed Font can be used in Flash games without any additional programming. For games that were not made in Flash, you can use the Cursed Font by renaming it to “Arial Black”. This works because the Flash player looks for the Arial Black font by default. For other fonts, you will need to edit the game or install it on your computer.
