The font might be duplicated, but I checked its licensing information
and it is free.  (I thought maybe if it were a simple font I could make
one up for the game.)  Here is the text information that the TrueType
font Hurryup.ttf contains:

Also visit my commercial type foundry at www.typodermic.com. This font

Notice/Description: accents added in 2004. Larabie Fonts is able to
offer unique free fonts through the generous support of visitors to the
site. Making fonts is my full-time job and every donation, in any

This appears at http://www.larabiefonts.com/help.html -- "Embedding
Larabie Fonts in any format is free of charge and you don't need our
permission for embedding them in your software."  The site does state
that the use granted for his TrueType fonts don't apply to OpenType
fonts.  It could be that the font collection is non-free (I don't have
the package at hand) -- he does mention that he didn't create all the
fonts in his massive collection.

He says he'll accept donations, but states that the font is freeware
(not shareware).
