Extremely blocky typeface, meant for large text of 36 point and up. Feel free to improve upon it!
Recreation of the small pixel font from the european/north american release of Climax Entertainment/Sonic! Software Planning's "Shining Force" (1992) on the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis.
This font is unusual, as each character not only comprises two tiles (for its height), but also features characters that are wider than the maximum 8px tiles. In the game's tile set, this was achieved by using a custom encoding, where a single tile contains the combined values for two horizontal tiles.
See this short Twitter thread for a little dissection of the tile set.
The width of each character is also variable and encoded in the bottom tile for each character. Unfortunately, I was unable to work out the logic behind the width information bits - so, for characters used in the game, the correct width was matched manually, and for any characters not encountered (yet) in any of the dialog boxes, I took an educated guess...
Due to the complexity of this encoding, I won't tackle the hiragana/katakana large font from the japanese release.
Only the characters present in the game's tile set have been included
Recreation of one of the pixel fonts from Video System's "Aero Fighters" (aka "Sonic Wings", 1992). This font is used for the pilot names and post-level taunts. Only the characters present in the game's tile set have been included.
Recreation of the large (16x16) pixel font from LJN/Software Creations' "Spider-Man and Venom: Maximum Carnage" (1994) on the SNES and Sega Mega Drive / Genesis. Only the characters present in the game's tile set have been included.
Future Retro is a geometric typeface that has an implied roundness. The shape and contrast within each letter invokes a retro and a futuristic feeling at the same time. Future Retro is a sans serif display typeface with clear readability. Future Retro is great for large scale type in posters, signage, merchandise, headlines, titles, etc.
This is a take on a classic arcade font with crowns and points. Best used for large type.
