       This will search the system fonts for the given font

       fallback on the builtin pygame font if the given font
       is not found.

       Name can also be a comma separated list of names, in
       which case set of names will be searched in order. Pygame
       uses a small set of common font aliases, if the specific
       font you ask for is not available, a reasonable alternative
       may be used.
