This is a font where its 4x4 pixels, I took a little more time into this than usual. Thats all!
By popular demand, I'm very proud to present you this recreation/digitization of Maxim Zhukov's Meander (an experimental modular type design from 1972, which was used in cover artworks for Stereolab's Dots and Loops album and Miss Modular EP).
Now supports Cyrillic characters and includes other custom-made glyphs, like numerals and punctuation marks.

hello people this is my first attempt at a font, feel free to private message me if you want to use it for anything. i intended this for use with old style games but you can use it for anything as long i'm credited for my work
A basic 3x3 pixel font where every glyph is unique. Some characters are 4x4 such as @, #, %, $, and &, but I try to keep the larger characters to a minumum.
An alternate take on Eyeball Kids which has more expressive eyes.
Making this has given me an idea for an ASCII Roguelike tileset wherein lowercase letters represent juvenile creatures and uppercase letters represent adult ones.This is a clone of Eyeball Kids
The new Eyeball Kids™ from Pixel Kitchen® are the best way to get your child interested in experimenting with eyeballs. Color 'em! Italicize 'em! Throw 'em into oncoming traffic! Abuse 'em all you want because EYEBALL KIDS ARE ETERNAL.*

A compressed, squareish microfont. 4x4, monospaced, no wasted matrix.
I like how this one uses all the space it occupies. Glyphs like ijl1 fill out the words they're in rather than creating voids. Also, i looks kind of like a lit candlestick, and I like that.

A more bookish take on Comicool, made for more comfortable general reading. It's still useful for comics, as well!
Many letters were squared off in the corners, lowercase letters were given stems, and an assortment of glyphs were edited for more style.
This is the third iteration of Comicool... rather than develop them all toward one style, I tried to make each iteration the best it could be. The result is three distinct, but still compatible styles. This one is probably the best for body text!This is a clone of Comicool
A half-sized, filterless version of Comicool Unicase which also has square terminals.
This has lowercase, but is made for all-caps comic book style lettering, so consider the lowercase as something added for accessibility's sake...
A rounded version of Pixelcruiser Flagship. I think rounding it off both made it better-looking and more readable! This now looks like something I'd use in pixel comics.This is a clone of Pixelcruiser Flagship
A tiny font made for pixel art tutorials and streamer use. The inspiration comes from old art of video game controllers which I used to make, in particular the letters ABCLRXYZ which I drew many times on many controller buttons. The more complex letters (B,E,M,W) take on slightly abstract forms for neatness' sake.
Since these glyphs are all 4x4 unicase, compositing them for use in Fontstruct tutorials might save you a lot of work. Feel free to clone this for such a use.

A combinatorial conlang whose symbols find many uses.
This is the written language of early Azwelke people from Planet Ashr in my game Endless Sea of Stars. The symbols are called "Moon Runes" (both pejoratively and not), and each represents a cluster of phonemes. The language is similar to Katakana Japanese in that written words are sounded out. Proper nouns cannot be written in Moon Runes, and so such nouns rely on Old Azwelkeland Script to be committed to record.
The Wolves of Euphedora still use these symbols as part of their own hidden language, here called "RZ". Since this cipher invents no new characters, these Moon Runes can be used to write RZ as well.
These symbols are also still used in modern Ashrian astrology. Their designations below reflect this fact.

Another attempt at the challenging 4x4 grid. Only those characters which I could fit into the 4x4 grid were included. This time, I think I managed to get near the level of quality and style typical of a 5x5 font!
This is probably the smallest font most people would ever want to use for general reading. It took no trivial amount of experience and experimentation to come up with!
If you use this to make assets, you can use color separation to fit 4 glyphs onto an 8x8 tile or 16 onto a 16x16 tile. Check out my profile page for more microfonts you can use in your games!

Wood-engraving script used by Ajurru people of Planet Ashr within my video game series, "Endless Sea of Stars". This script dates from 2010, when I first created the Ajurru within the simulated metaverse, ESOSVM. This is iteration 27 of the script, the one which appears in countless forms within the original ESOS story.
This script was designed for Ajurru scribes to show their skills with stone tools. Thus, it contains an immense number of curves and right angles. Most Ajurru consider this script to be overly-ornate, and so it is mostly used in a traditional context - for government records, memorials, and the like.
The "G" from this script is also the inspiration for another font, "Wall Dye".
The 4x4 pixel font from the Virtua Gremlin. This one is stylized, and was used for scoreboards and the like.
A bit of artistic flying ;) This design would have benefitted from the original 8x8 composite possibility but 5x5 or 4x6 would have worked, too. Done as far as I need it for normal communication in modern English.
It's been some time since I was on this site. The lowercase only use top slopes, while uppercase uses top and bottom slopes. The numbers use pairs of slopes that move in the same direction.
