Recreation of the pixel font from Epyx/Mastertronic's "Rogue" (1988) on the Commodore 64, Amstrad CPC, and ZX Spectrum. Only the characters present in the game's tile set have been included.
A monospaced version of Barcade Brawl that has been modified to work well as a roguelike font. Not every glyph is centered yet, but all the Basic Latin and More Latin ones are.
A few glyphs (such as #) are modified to break the matrix so that they link together. This is because these glyphs are used to form continuous walls and other structures.
Note also that this design uses a 7x7px matrix which is monospaced at 8px to create 8x7 tiles. I have placed a stray pixel on an unused glyph to make 1px of extra line spacing occur so that the final tiles are 8x8. The preview here onsite adds another px, so it looks slightly out of square. The sample below does too, because it was made before this fix was implemented.
I was working on another spinoff of this that was high-resolution rather than pixel, but since this font has the same LC and UC, I might transplant those glyphs to this font as well to make it as multifunctional as possible. That will more than double the work of making an already big font, though, so it will depend on whether this font gets used by others. A few game developers already use the original "Barcade Brawl" so there is a possibility...
Original size: 5.25pt (use multiples of this size for pixel perfection)This is a clone of Barcade Brawl
Latin block is traced from Linux stock VGA8 font. Designed to fit 8x8 grid including spacing, so most symbols are 7x7 =WARNING= Line spacing is stuck and cannot be edited within FontStruct, you can edit it manually, see http://designwithfontforge.com/en-US/Line_Spacing.html for example.
