I just scoured several pages inside omniglot.com and examined a hard-copy of the sample in question with the examples provided by the referenced page.
From what I can see, this language does resemble the Runic alphabet. It does look like it has been created by a computer generated font (RTF or
similar), as stated by Enki.
The link below shows you the various Runic characters. The samples don't stop there, as there are more than a dozen ancient alphabets on this page.
And yes, some of the characters in a majority of the different alphabets almost look identical.
