Hymmnos   Hymmnos alphabet

The Hymmnos alphabet was created by Akira Tsuchiya (土屋暁) for the video game series "Ar tonelico" (アルトネリコ). It is used mainly to write the fictional language of the same name, though it is suitable for English or any other language with standard Latin orthography. According to the creator it's based in appearance upon one of the Sanskrit scripts.

The game is set in the distant future (AD 3700) and the Hymmnos language used in it is a distant descendent of English with influences from Japanese, Sanskrit and German.
