5 downloads5%20downloads56 comments6%20comments668 glyphs68%20glyphs68A favorite of 8 usersA%20favorite%20of%208%20users8In 1981, Konami introduced the worlds first side scrolling shooter video game, called Scramble. This game took many quarters from me as it was a regular stop walking home from school to play. It had forced scrolling from right to left with a fighter jet infiltrating harsh terrain and enemy bases. 
In 1987, the company Irem produced R-Type - a side scroller with heavy graphics that was like Scramble on Steroids. The fighter crafts had different weapon capabilities that could be upgraded. Originally, the "R" series of spacecrafts stood for "Ray," like ray gun. 
RayType Alpha represents a time in between Scramble and R-Type, with RayType Alpha representing the first alpha version of the series. 

In my game, each letter becomes a chamber in the enemy's giant spacecraft environment. The spaceship must fly through each chamber, shooting down turrets and projectiles, while collecting powerups dispersed on specific locations of only certain letters. 

Like StepWyze, This is also an actual game (proof of concept only) that is unfinished, but I will post a link as soon as I have enough playable elements coded in.

4 downloads4%20downloads45 comments5%20comments535 glyphs35%20glyphs35A favorite of 9 usersA%20favorite%20of%209%20users9So this was made into an actual game. The font was sketched out a while ago, but after the GameComp started, I thought it would adapt well to transforming into one of those infinite jumper games popular on mobile devices. Instead I let it become a right to left scroller with the player jumping through words that actually say something. It's somewhat meta in that the player has to navigate the platform and make sense of the words at the same time. Simple to play. Try not to stumble over your words as you go about your business  and time flies by. Just like in real life. 

The game is just a proof of concept and not at all near completed.

8 downloads8%20downloads8208 glyphs208%20glyphs208A favorite of 1 userA%20favorite%20of%201%20user1This is a font that is cloned from the text that appears in old-school video games made by software companies including, but not limited to, Atari, Namco, Nintendo, Taito, Konami, Sega and Hudsonsoft. It authentically adheres to 8x8 grid-like limitations while at the same time being legible, easily understandable, functional and practical. This font version sacrifices most accented letters  in favour of a number of ligatures and digraphs so that two characters can occupy the strict space of one letter to allow for more letters to occupy a line (namely thinner letters like I, F, L and T). Use of US-International keyboard configurations helps in the use of these ligatures (I hope where they are mapped is acceptable).

I have chosen letter-forms that are different from many of the letters that are characteristic of the classic typeface--A and V are most obvious--to give it my own spin. I did include the traditional A and V if you still want them, as well as alternates for 0 and 8. The lower-case letters are my own creation.

Insight and ideas for improvement are greatly appreciated.This%20is%20a%20font%20that%20is%20cloned%20from%20the%20text%20that%20appears%20in%20old-school%20video%20games%20made%20by%20software%20companies%20including%2C%20but%20not%20limited%20to%2C%20Atari%2C%20Namco%2C%20Nintendo%2C%20Taito%2C%20Konami%2C%20Sega%20and%20Hudsonsoft.%20It%20authentically%20adheres%20to%208x8%20grid-like%20limitations%20while%20at%20the%20same%20time%20being%20legible%2C%20easily%20understandable%2C%20functional%20and%20practical.%20This%20font%20version%20sacrifices%20most%20accented%20letters%20%20in%20favour%20of%20a%20number%20of%20ligatures%20and%20digraphs%20so%20that%20two%20characters%20can%20occupy%20the%20strict%20space%20of%20one%20letter%20to%20allow%20for%20more%20letters%20to%20occupy%20a%20line%20%28namely%20thinner%20letters%20like%20I%2C%20F%2C%20L%20and%20T%29.%20Use%20of%20US-International%20keyboard%20configurations%20helps%20in%20the%20use%20of%20these%20ligatures%20%28I%20hope%20where%20they%20are%20mapped%20is%20acceptable%29.%0D%0A%0D%0AI%20have%20chosen%20letter-forms%20that%20are%20different%20from%20many%20of%20the%20letters%20that%20are%20characteristic%20of%20the%20classic%20typeface--A%20and%20V%20are%20most%20obvious--to%20give%20it%20my%20own%20spin.%20I%20did%20include%20the%20traditional%20A%20and%20V%20if%20you%20still%20want%20them%2C%20as%20well%20as%20alternates%20for%200%20and%208.%20The%20lower-case%20letters%20are%20my%20own%20creation.%0D%0A%0D%0AInsight%20and%20ideas%20for%20improvement%20are%20greatly%20appreciated.

17 downloads17%20downloads1763 glyphs63%20glyphs63A favorite of 6 usersA%20favorite%20of%206%20users6The original starting point for this typeface was "Decay."  I was thinking about what is left after something has completely decayed, which brought me to the idea of using skulls. After having created the skull outline, I tried different ways of including the letterforms, and decided that the simpler the better (and more readable.) As a result, the typeface has gained a sort of old-school computer game-esque feel - hence the name.
