(Work in Progress)
This is a larger variation of my smaller 8-bit Nostalgia series, and assumes 16pt rendering. It's inspired in large part by the computers from my past: the Commodore 64, Atari, and IBM PC. In many ways, this font is closer to the font used for VGA text -- this font is on an 8x16 grid, while the VGA used a 9x16 grid. However, the VGA font has more letters with serifs, while this font avoids that whenever possible (aside from the typical I/i, L/l, J/j). Only a few other glyphs get serifs when they wouldn't otherwise need it to appear reasonably well-kerned.
This font uses an 8x16 pixel grid. The top three rows are reserved for ascenders and diacritics. The bottom four rows are reserved for descenders. This leaves nine rows for the capital forms, and seven rows for the lowercase forms.
- The "A" and "V" is angled a bit more than usual in a font of this type.
- The "B" has a narrower top half in order to offset the fact that the top and bottom are equal height.
- "J" more closely resembles its lowercase form.
- "g" is a double-story form.
- "3", "4", "5", "6", "9" numerals are fairly unique forms
Made on a whim as a result of rediscovering an old design (see sample).
It's pixel perfect at 12pt, 24pt, 36pt, etc. :^)
Since the inspiration image had only uppercase in it, I took some style liberties with the lowercase. The result is mildly comical!
Pixel demake of Goud. This is easily the best Goud for body text, as it remains crisp at all sizes!
Original size: 9pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
High-res version of Marengi.
This is made to be ultramodern and ultraregular, just as high-tech futuristic corporations are wont to make their fonts.
Recommended: Use with kerning and antialiasing turned ON!
Marengi inverted and made to look like it's on a tape or reel. This is used in videos for captions and in games to produce a "caution tape" or "police tape" effect. Uppercase Only!
7x9 font used for the MozPOS, a cellphone-like device from my game Trap Farmer Brer Brah. Only the glyphs from the original font have been included.
"Moz" stands for a person's nickname. "POS" stands for... well, you know. :D
A highly exclusive language used by people on Bysonce Island, Planet Ashr in my video game Endless Sea of Stars. This one is used for private documents and old government records, and its brother language Eudastiphos Hand is used for public court documents.
Calystiphos Hand is much simpler than its brother language, despite looking much more complicated. Each glyph refers to highly specific concepts and so it is most used to record time-tested, factual information rather than stories or fiction. However, these glyphs can still be considered as runes, as each one is host to whole mysteriums of information and idiomatic knowledge which have been associated with it.
Bysoncians use a base-8 system of numeracy. 9 would thus be written as 81, 10 as 82, etc. There is no numeral 9.
Calystiphos is the Ashrian god of siroccos. The simplest way to put it is to say that he represents the "yin" of the pantheon.
