With 6x12 pixels at size 6/8 font, this variant of Zodiac Square will fit two characters in one 12x12 square. To ensure a halved-square font, any accented glyphs from Mandrill (my monospaced, lanky, much-of-unicode font) that went above a capital A's peak were cut, but many lower-case accented glyphs stayed in. Since this is meant for a text-heavy game genre where legibility at small size is important, all of Latin Extended Additional was cut -- it was just too hard to read at small sizes, and I doubt it would be very useful in a roguelike or similar text-based game that needs halved-square glyphs. This looks pretty good with anti-aliasing, but the preview may be funny because it uses the old 2x2 filter. It's called Zodiac Narrow because of the 6x12 pixels, 12 signs of the Zodiac, more Narrow than Zodiac Square.
