Another recreated pixel font from the original 1993 SNES Shadowrun game, namely the monospace computer font appearing in the game's top-down Matrix sequences.

The font is a 1:1 rebuild and appears exactly as in-game. I have also added a lot of common characters, diacritics, super- and subscript numbers, and other gylphs that don't show up in the game.

Unfortunately, the strict 7px grid makes it hard to expand the character range of the font while staying true to the edgy style.

The base font size and recommended setting for Datajack is 8pt and multiples of that. Use metric kerning and no additional smoothing effects for the ultimate 1993 Matrix experience.

Shadowrun on the SNES was developed by Beam Software and released by Data East in 1993. I picked the name of the font (Datajack) after the tool that allows you to jack into the Matrix in-game. The reason I rebuilt the font is that I needed the original appearance in an indie game project of my own.
