This looks more like a font for a techno metal band (Metalectronica?) than I originally intended, but I think it is still handy. I made this to use as a pixel-perfect font for a game after no slanted or rounded outline fonts fit the bill. Numbers are taller than the x-height, but slightly shorter than the capital letters. The name is meant to sound like it fits in an ancient myth (Echidna was the mother of many beasts that featured prominently in Greek mythology), but also referenced the spiky nature of the font (the echidna is also a little australian mammal covered in spikes).


At pixel view it reminds me to Modula Ribbed by Emigre. There are some surfaces to work on, especially the capitals need more bumps to be consistent with the lc. Very impressive, nevertheless. 10/10

Thats REALLY cool... VERY nice pixel font!

Very nice work indeed. But I do agree with frodo because the UC and LC do seem to clash with each other. A few more bumps would definitely help that. Hmm. Besides that I'd say its pretty great. Good work! 10/10
