An homage to the typography of 8-bit computers from the 80s. Grid is 8x8 and most characters fill 6x6. A few characters are 7 pixels wide, and ascending/descending characters are 7 pixels high. A few characters are stylized, including 3, 4, 7, g, j/J. Most characters are sans-serif, excluding I/i, J/j, L/l, g, n, r, u, 1, 7. Inspirations: - Atari 400/800 font - Commodore 64 font - IBM CGA font

@kerrishotts - Very nice. Is there a particular inspiration for this?

I added some inspirations to the description. The Atari 400/800 font is probably the closest, especially wrt the 6x6 most characters use, although there are some notable differences between that font and this one. A few letters are closer to the IBM CGA font, although it wasn't the primary inspiration.
