In 1983, Atari released the Crystal Castles video game. You play Bentley Bear walking around castles and collecting gems. Trimetric instead of isometric. Interestingly enough, the initials of the highest scorer in the leaderboard is used to build the first castle. This font version is created using the same thin plated tiles that the player traverses through the castles. This was fun to do. I made the sample scroll down in like another 80s video game classic: Marble Madness. It was difficult fitting the whole thing within 48 grid squares, but totally possible. This was actually kept a little under at 46.

Thanks Upixel & Frodo.
I have an idea for making a game out of this font. If only I can figure out isometric layering movement...

What's with all these newcomers immediately complaining about fonts; not even making a font first or reading the FAQ? This is like the third time this month week.

@geneus1: you are right about the trivia initials (e.g. "FXL")…
Your pseudo-iso font is not related to this anecdote, nonetheless they would have looked a great replacement (even playable with the ad hoc gateways?)!
Clean fontstruction (without shades).
