They could probably slide by with the font... But that "O" is a dead giveaway

Damn similar... looks nice, but I don't know how you don't see Sunset Overdrive. Even the N is backwards.

Look at the E and D. Those are dead giveaways.

Maybe Sony was trying to be a good guy and give Insomniac some extra marketing for the game. You know this will be on every single game blog within the hour.

The only similar character is the 'O', the brush strokes are way more pronounced on Sunset's. Is it even their font?

Man, what's up with Sony? They were on fire for almost a year, then--suddenly--I'm becoming more and more disappointed with what they are doing. It feels like Nintendo is the only one of the three to be doing things right. Never thought I'd say that in 2014.
2015 better bring some improvements mannnnn

That and the backwards N. Obviously the same font. Nice of Sony to help advertise SO.

The intern has been fired, right?

As I said in the other thread, sheer desperation from Sony to try and associate their brand with wht will be the biggest game of this year.

I don't blame them, they have precious little else to market the rest of the year.

I'm trying to find if the Sunset Overdrive font is unique to them, or if they used one online. Right now all I can find is stuff named for it, which may be remakes generated by fans of the game.

Anyone else have luck with this?

Calling Sunset Overdrive the biggest game of the year hilariously overstates the importance of it.

Over a font?

Or is this satire? I can't tell.

Artist created a piece of funky art and needed a font to go with it. Did some searching through a catalog/site with some fonts, found one that he/she liked and fit the artwork, and picked it. That's probably all it was.
