Where can I find fonts (preferably free, but a reasonable fee is acceptable) that I can use in my for-pay/commericial game?

There are either too many possible answers, or good answers would be too long for this format. Please add details to narrow the answer set or to isolate an issue that can be answered in a few paragraphs. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

GPWiki has a list of game asset resources, including fonts. –  Josh Petrie Jan 17 '12 at 19:13

You can find many free and cheap fonts on MyFonts.com, including the Larabie Font Collection (many of which are free for commercial use)

+1 for MyFonts because they have a "what languages does this font support" search feature. –  Tetrad Aug 2 '10 at 19:00

Two good places to find free fonts are Font Squirrel and The League of Moveable Type.

I always head to dafont.com, although the range is similar to Font Squirrel and MyFonts.

If you're building a web game, Google has provided free fonts here: http://code.google.com/webfonts This is a great service for web developers, because web licenses for fonts can be a gray area. They have only a small fraction of the fonts you can find on sites like others have suggested, however.

As far as I can tell these XNA fonts from Microsoft are free to use (released under the MS-PL):

Redistributable Font Pack

Fonts from Canada Type have a reasonable license, and I plan on using at least one of theirs in my next iPhone game.

We have font tiles available to buy for a small fee: http://www.indiegamedesigner.com/product-category/all-graphics/font-tiles/

Might be useful to some of you.

This question is about fonts and font tiles don't really count, so I'm downvoting. –  doppelgreener Sep 23 '12 at 11:34
