From the vault of unpublished doodles, a permutation of earlier ideas.
An evil electromagnetic zigzag tape reel. Looks almost embossed, as if the letters were "pressed" into the waves somehow. In that way it reminds me of old hand-operated label makers. It also makes me think of electricity, TV static, ocean waves, tire tracks, fractured glass, and more depending on font size and color.
The name is inspired by an attack from a notorious NES game, "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde".
An inverted alternate version of Spiderling that's glitch-free... for now, at least!
I think this doesn't look nearly as spider-like as the original... your mileage may vary...
A pixel font disguised as a high-resolution one. It's a pretty effective disguise thanks to the gaps between bricks.
A quadratic design which also kind of looks like a hedge maze viewed from overhead.
The idea here was that I had 4 quadrants with 90-degree angles in them, and I would turn or modify those quadrants so they looked like letterforms.
Reticular octagonal inline vs. outline thing. Made using an additive method in which no template bricks were removed - though many were replaced with square bricks. The original form is on ",".
Some kind of patchwork or frayed woven look.
A font I designed around 2016 for a DSRPG prototype on the Game Boy Advance.
A font which looks like a sea urchin, the eminent anemone enemy.
Lincoln Log-inspired font with a custom set of composite bricks. Feel free to clone this and make new creations from the composites!
B/8, S/Z, and 2/5 are exactly the same... still brainstorming on how to deal with it while adhering to the design rules...
Original size: 20pt
Experimental 33-segment display. While setting the spacing for Piscrypt Plain, I turned on monospacing and all the glyphs stacked up. I thought that made an interesting shape to design a segmented display on.
This has its own set of composite bricks; feel free to clone it and experiment!
Original size: 20pt
Here at Marengi Omnisystems, we like to put a twist on the ordinary. Consider the plus sign. Normal plus signs have four termini. But, after dozens of minutes of modification, the plus sign can be transformed into myriad other shapes, all of which are even pointier than the original. Don't Worry, No Frankenplusses Here! These are actually organic, free-range, grass-fed plus signs that we chopped up and glued together. Don't you wish all stories could end so happily?
A 9x9 font where the 5x5 letters are framed or held captive by selection indicators/targeting reticles. The kind of font a kid might draw on a cardboard spaceship.
The "TB" stands for "tuberculosis", which is probably what this font has. Still, it was fun to try to create authentic blackletter on such a small grid!
Original size: 9pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
What's the matter? Don't you like square bricks? :D
A chimera (fusion) which combines inline-versus-outline, maze, Gemscript, and other techniques to produce a timeless look.
Original size: 6.75pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
1. Square bricks only.
2. A 1px soft border of negative space must exist between lines whenever possible.
3. Glyphs must fill the 9x9 grid to the greatest extent possible given the rounded style.
4. The set of glyphs shall be a heterogeneous mix of symmetrical and asymmetrical forms.
5. Negative space will replace positive in any situation wherein the small grid size or the geometry of a letterform would be detrimental to the chosen style. This includes all situations where any shape lacks at least a soft 1px border of negative space around it.

The last and largest Virtua Gremlin font, used for title screens. The 13 signs of the Zodiac are in there too.
Clone of 9x9 Strict. This font was originally made on my alternate account (winty5alt), but I don't plan on using that account anymore unless I have a problem logging on to this one.
Anyway, this font is a 9x9 strict pan-unicode font, great for LCD displays & stuff. Hope you enjoy! :)This is a clone of 9x9 Strict
