Details

Description:
A pixel-city. That means it is a pixelated city. A city that is made of pixels. PIXELS, not bricks. The letters are as follows: A--Capitol building B--Plain building C--Building cluster 1 D--Factory E--Building cluster 2 F--Building cluster 3 G--Twin buildings H--Building cluster 4 I--Bridge J--Skyscraper #1 K--Central Park L--Huge Building M--Double Skyscrapers N--Plain building #2 O--Plain Building #3 P--Airport Q--Skyscraper R--Burned-down building S--Burned-down building 2 T--Space Needle (creds to my friend) Space--Road I'll probably add more buildings. Maybe another factory... I dunno.

Without doubt, this can become a Megalopolis... Even fits the style of "Metropolis" by F. Lang!

To get the city, just mash random keys.

That looks great! :) Maybe add some clouds and airplanes too?

@anexa: I would add a cloud, but the tree turned out absolutely horrible, and I'd rather not toy with anymore organic shapes. As for the planes, I'd rather have everything on the ground... It just makes more sense. I'll add an airport, though, if it makes you happy!

BTW, the sample above is not my official sample image... I need a better sample, and I have added more buildings. I'll get to work on the sample.

I revised the height of the letters... it was originally more than 48 bricks. Now it's eligible for the competition!

All of the entries were close, but I really think you worked hard and this deserves the third place. Or more ;)

how do you do it lol you need to learn me


xenophilius
xenophilius Wed, 20th July, 2011

@Netbook: Thanks! Glad you like it.

@Dreamweaver: The only letters are A-T and Space; no lowercase and only limited capitals. If you use a letter not included in the font, it will automatically revert back to the default typeface, be it Times New Roman or Arial or Calibri. As far as I am aware, this only happens on Microsoft Word--I assume that is what you used?

@mawgen: Well, thank you. I find that the best way to make fonts (that is, good fonts, or in my case, borderline good) is to make a bunch of simple fonts in as many styles as you can, just to get started, and when you are confident enough, go on and try more complicated fonts. There are some amazing things here on FontStruct--I recommend you clone some of them and check them out for inspiration.

I luv it........how can I use it 4 a game I play called racing live? The world should love it as much as I do!!!

xenophilius Wed, 19th October, 2011

I'm not sure what you mean. Can you be more specific?

By the way, if you want to use it, go ahead. I only make fonts for fun, not for money, so if someone wants to use it on a poster or a game, they can. If I receive credit for the font, though, I won't go after your soul.
