Top 50 Free Cyberpunk and Tech Fonts

What’s not to love about the dafont typeface repository? The main reason why indie comic book authors, game developers and designers like it is that a large chunk of the items are public domain, which means they can use it for commercial projects. The database is huge – I reckon there are more than 10,000 fonts listed and obviously not all of them are suitable when it comes to the more techy and geeky font consumer.

For this top-list I decided to collect the 50 most useful techy fonts out there. Theses are typefaces that either me or my colleagues have actually used in real-life projects. Because some of these are created by amateurs (and fair play to them, they’ve done a tremendous job!) you will find characters that could do with some tweaking once you’ve converted your text to outlines. These fonts are free or public domain to my best knowledge but because the fonts on dafont are submitted by authors and their circumstances may change, it’s advisable to always read the readme.txt that is included with the download archive to make sure this is still the case. This list comes in no particular order!

Rollerball AKA Scorpions Fonts

Although largely distopian and cyberpunk by its nature, I decided to split the Rollerball into its own little category because it’s just so amazing! Even almost 40 years on. However, this typeface was probably made more popular by the German metal band The Scorpions.
