My take on those classic serif style stencil designs.
Initially I started this design as a all caps display style, the desicion for a lowercase came once the uppercase already had been completed, and I truly had a hard time making a good looking lowercase for this one.
Also it felt like kerning this style was much harder to see and get right than most other fonts I made.
There still remains a number of things I had rather seen different, like those numerals, but this is the best I could do for now, I hope you like it!
Please enjoy a private clone to see how I dealt with contrast, curves, bracketing, variable letter width and the difficult-to-achieve emboldening of the capitals’ vertical strokes within a minimal fontstruct matrix (and If you like what you see, please download for personal usage and vote kindly! :)
Intaglio’s amazing recent work makes similar strides (see the excellent rounds, for example), offering a solution before me to several of these long-standing impasses of the medium.
More characters to come... :)This is a clone
There are various pixel fonts for the main text from the Ace Attorney games out there (like "PW Extended", "Ace Attorney", or "pwfont"), but none of them is a truly coherent or complete recreation of all the actual letters used in the original NDS games. Igiari is there to change that! This font includes over 800 characters and features a vast array of letters with diacritics as well as a near-complete set of all original Japanese hiragana and katakana characters from the Ace Attorney series.
The font is a 1:1 rebuild based on the games and appears exactly as in-game with correct spacing. I also added the game-related Borginian font symbols as well as countless of the more common characters and some gylphs that don't show up in the games.
Please note that the European games (with German and French translations) use a slightly thinner variant of this font. I may work on a European set later, but for now, this is the most comprehensive set of Ace Attorney letters you will find on the net.
Due to the inclusion of the larger Japanese characters, the base font size and recommended setting for Igiari is 16pt and multiples of that. Use metric kerning and no additional smoothing effects for the ultimate Ace Attorney pixel experience.
The Ace Attorney games for Game Boy Advance and Nintendo DS were developed and released by Capcom from 2001 onward. I picked the name of the font (Igiari) after the Japanese variant of the games' trademark "Objection!" expression. The reason I rebuilt this font is that I needed the original appearance in an indie game project of my own.

These elegant letters appear as the original main font used in the little-known tactical SNES RPG Gemfire, or Super Royal Blood in Japan.
Ishmeria is a faithful and exact recreation of said in-game font, expanded with hundreds of diacritic variants, number variations, additional bonus characters and various dingbat symbols. And that's not everything: all Japanese hiragana and katakana characters from the original version are also included, making this one of my most extensive recreations to date.
The base font size and recommended setting for Ishmeria is 16pt and multiples of that. Use metric kerning and no additional smoothing effects for an authentic pixel performance.
Gemfire on the SNES, known as Super Royal Blood in Japan, was developed and published by Koei in 1992.

Another font following a slant? Am I crazy?
So I saw this sample for a font called Macbeth that hasn't been digitized, so I took it into my own hands to do it. Check it!
Pixel font recreation based on every character that appears in the FIFA: Road to World Cup 98 game for the SNES.

Having grown quite font of recreating video game pixel fonts, I did yet another one: the font used in the SNES classic Super Punch-Out!!
Quarlow is my most extensive font to date, featuring over 850 glyphs based on the characters appearing in the game. It comes with a whole hiragana & katakana set as well as a cyrillic base character set, countless added characters and all of the more common special characters, diacritic characters, etc.
The base font size and recommended setting for Quarlow is 16pt and multiples of that. Use metric kerning and no additional smoothing effects for the ultimate punch-out experience.
Super Punch-Out!! on the SNES was developed and released by Nintendo in 1994. I picked the name of the font (Quarlow) after one of the many quirky opponents you face in the game.

Serratic is a pixel font with a sharp, edgy look designed by myself.
The font features a lot of common foreign characters, diacritics, super- and subscript numbers, and others I wanted to include.
