Recreation of the pixel font from Quintet/Enix's "ActRaiser" (1990) on the SNES.
This font includes a full set of hiragana and katakana characters. In the tile set, the dakuten and handakuten are separate tiles, positioned on the line above the character they relate to. In this recreation, these characters are pre-combined into a single glyph.
The japanese version of this game features subtly different punctuation. This recreation only includes the punctuation marks from the western release.
Only the characters present in the game's tile set have been included.
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.
