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.
Omnis walasye re pomb an spitze eazas ween dius en quowjaz. Herra re accrroad anw cyurio en murfanare, en presia herra harmon art tatakaria zixxa.
All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with
reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.
