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
The font used in Super Mario 64 when speaking to people or reading signs. These characters are mostly derived from the game and used to recreate the font. Glyphs such as the asterisk and curly bracket are made with modified or existing characters used in-game (star instead of asterisk, curly bracket made from parenthesis, etc.)
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!
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.

There are several recreations of the original PSone Final Fantasy VII font around, but none of them are either as accurate or comprehensive as this version, which also features the Japanese hiragana and katakana alphabets as well as menu numbers, special characters, and whatnot.
The base font size and recommended setting for Reactor7 is 16pt and multiples of that. Use metric kerning and no additional smoothing effects for the ultimate Final Fantasy VII experience.
Final Fantasy VII on the PlayStation was developed and released by Squaresoft in 1997.

A stout, slab serif, large countered, heavy sided, pixel font.
~ Altima - created by Caveras after the original main text font used in Final Fantasy Tactics for the Sony PlayStation. ~
Altima is not the first recreation of the original PSone Final Fantasy Tactics font on the web, but certainly the most accurate and comprehensive you'll find. The font is based on the complete set of the game's international bitmap glyphs and thus also features the Japanese hiragana and katakana alphabets as well as countless additional stuff like a cyrillic base character set, special characters, zodiac signs, and whatnot.
The base font size and recommended setting for Altima is 16pt and multiples of that. Use metric kerning and no additional smoothing effects for the ultimate FFT experience.

Final Fantasy Tactics on the PlayStation was developed by Square and published by Square & Sony in 1997.
This is a faithful recreation of the original font used in the SNES RPGs developed by Quintet. There is already a popular font based on the game called Lunchtime Doubly So, but that one has none of the special characters used in the European localizations of the game, and also none of the original Japanese characters.
This trademark Quintet font appears in all their SNES RPGs (namely Soul Blazer, Illusion of Gaia, and Terranigma), but with many little differences depending on the game at hand. Gaiatype is a recreation of the Terranigma typeface variant, to be exact, with its own spacing and character set.
Featuring all the European diacritic and extra glyphs as well as a complete set of all the hiragana and katakana characters from the original version of the game, called Tenchi Souzou in Japan, this marks my most extensive font to date with over 760 glyphs in total.
The base font size and recommended setting for Gaiatype is 16pt and multiples of that. Use metric kerning and no additional smoothing effects for the ultimate Terranigma experience.
Terranigma on the SNES, known as Tenchi Souzou in Japan, was developed by Quintet and released by Enix in 1995.

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.

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.
