Fairchild Channel F
Video Entertainment System (VES - original name)

Collection of text characters, 1976-1981 Fairchild
5x5 / 4x5 / 3x5 US-ASCII valid fonts, 2018-04 dpla
Fairchild derived from the old 7-segment numerics.

Breakthroughs of this 2nd-gen video game console:
. first artificial intelligence (AI) in game,
. first programmable game cartridges (27),
. '8 colors' (in 102x58 out of 128x64 px),
. hold button menu, joystick/paddle controllers.

Today's young home players cannot understand this.

This small PROJECT of 6 retro pixel fonts looks GAME OVER! :-)

FAIRCHILD Channel F 'VES' US-ASCII typeface (2018 remakes) =
5x5 & 5x5P + 4x5 & 4x5P + 3x5 & 3x5 P.

{It's time for me to post nicer visuals, as soon as possible…}
