The first version of Gamer was modeled after a few 1972 magazine advertisement letters, the origin of which was later identified as a common film type called Checkmate.
A couple of years later, Patrick Griffin revisited the family to optimize a few minor oversights and add small caps to the speedy mechanical face. Now Gamer is truer than ever to its popular history as the defining Escape From New York movie poster and packaging face, a gun with a six-barrel engine that exudes heat, speed, strength and sharpness.
Gamer contains a few alternates within the character map of each of its fonts.
