This was once a shy, lineal design... then it rebelled against its parents, went subtractive, and finally became futuristic knotwork. Gnarly!
Original size: 15.5pt
Experimental brush/pen thing. Has a slightly spooky look. Because of their tapering curves, many glyphs can render with a "split" or "stencil" look about them. This is due to software-imposed limitations on vector rendering. Designs which share this property can be considered Pseudostencils.
This design is not informed or inspired by any existing typographical traditions. I set out to make the "claw" bricks (as I call them) into a font and this is the result.
A stencil design in which diagonal cuts are used to imply angles and curves. It does not quite obey the rules of a segmented display, but it tries its best!
This is inspired by some text I put on the side of the Sheepslayer Mk.2, a flying dragon car piloted by Lyll "Hatch" Soretti in my game Seven Candles.
A sunburst pattern was converted to negative space, resulting in little spiders!
An attempt to make a "classroom" font. It reminds me of a font style which was once commonly used on magnetic letters.

A design inspired by school uniforms, sports team jerseys, etc.
UC cloned to LC to make this easier to use...
A design that looks like a top-down view of ziggurats!
I composited the diacritics so they'd fit into place, but this means that most anything non-English needs to be pretty large to be unambiguously read...
Experimental cyberpunk robot mosaic thing.
It gives me a strong "system font" feeling and seems like something that might be included with the OS of some futuristic tech deck. If the Fairlight Excalibur from Shadowrun Returns had its own font, this could be it!
Original size: 21pt (use multiples of this size for pixel perfection)
10x10 fantasy- and RPG-related icons. The bigger they are, the better they look!

Stained-glass blackletter Frankenfont thing. :D

Just a doodle... Inspired by @, of course!
This makes me think of icons/dingbats and ASCII roguelikes.

A font inspired by the use of eggplants in video games. Many video games have unexpected eggplants in them. This is FontStruct's unexpected eggplant.
I decided to fill in the lowercase to add some variety. Hit SHIFT for shiny glyphs.

Font from the ingame marquee display of Barcade Brawl, a 2015 game by yours truly. This was made to look similar to the system fonts from old arcade boards, PC microsystems, etc. You've probably seen the fonts I'm talking about; they're everywhere and many people refer to them singularly as "the arcade font" or "the NES font".
This is 7x7 with no wasted matrix, but it looks better without monospacing since not every glyph is the same width. It also makes a decent terminal & chat font, at least for those who don't care about the case of the messages they read and write.
Feel free to use this in your games, etc.!

Version 1.1: KRX were modified to be more readable at small size, MQW14'"@ were edited for style, Basic Latin band completed, More Latin band underway.
A font made by request for an author of custom Warhammer 40K modules.
Version 1.5: Added Greek and made many refinements. Also came up with a new tilde design for all the glyphs that have one.
By request, a casual art deco design.
A stemless and spurless Eviolite. It has a "utilitarian" look which I enjoy.This is a clone of Eviolite
Some symbols and diacritics are left untouched, either for legibility's sake or because they happened to fall on one of the non-shaded rows.
Structurally, this is Junglira, although I did round a lot of corners that were squared in the original.

An alternate, more asymmetrical & stylized Madmouse.
This could be considered an avantgarde spurless or mixed-spur design. Some letters have spurs and some don't. This is entirely dependent on the diagonal lines, which were placed so that they would slant up and to the right. "s27" are obvious exceptions.This is a clone of Madmouse
Asymmetrical alien techno stencil.
This uses some experimental techniques, of course, but I'm not sure how to concisely explain those. Let's just say that each type of line bend and line connection has a rule associated with it. These get naturally modified by the structural asymmetry the font has so that simple rules appear in many forms and variations.
Experimental filled version of Pzydeco. The counter of "e" and all variations of it remains broken, so that the eye interprets it as "e" instead of "c".This is a clone of Pzydeco
Hello I am Primus and these are my modrons
This font dwells at several borderlines: Effect, Pseudo3D, and at times IVO. It is not really any of these, but with the right presentation, it looks like it is.
Paradoxy Effect, now with more dots.This is a clone of Paradoxy Effect
Font made for a friend's band. "Refollte" is Skalmish for "banana spider".
By request, a polygonal font with a slightly militaristic feeling.
The truncated polygonal perimeter of most glyphs is somewhat inspired by the lettering on World War I planes, tanks, and ships. These forms of lettering tended to have more square aspect ratios. I changed that to give this font more personality and to condense it so more text could fit on a line.
In terms of what modern military setting this might fit into, it looks very Air Force- or Navy-esque to my eye. Check out contemporary video games and recruitment materials relating to those two branches and you'll see what I mean.
A design that combines decolike asymmetry with a double line concept. It also incorporates some experimental methods to unify the wider glyphs (mw@#™, etc.) with the others, by allowing the middle sections of these letters to have both the single and double lines. This results in a look that is at times architectural and at other times almost like loopy cursive.
Font with a "light rays"/stained-glass effect.
The original Halberdia as it evolved from from 0.1 to 0.3.This is a clone of Halberdia
The original turned out to be great for vector design, but didn't always play well with stroke outlines. So I made this.This is a clone of Graphene
V0.2.6: Finished Cyrillic.
A small scale faux-bezier design with a cutout-esque look. It offers different advantages at different sizes. Most glyphs are legible down to 4pt.
As this design evolves, it gives me an increasing "board games" feeling. This design seems very well-suited for board game parts, especially cards and smaller plastic pieces.
This has a few notable design features:
- Asymmetry helps keep letters like bdpq from being confused for one another
- Serifs and flags accomplish the same thing for groups of similar letters such as ce and ftſ
- Semiserif style helps reduce the need for kerning to almost zero
- Simplified polygons and counter shapes help pixel optimization

A quirky Pseudostencil design with a central horizontal slot going through it. The "slot" is 1 brick tall for lowercase and 2 for uppercase, and becomes a vertical slot for numerals and certain symbols.
This is named for the cowboy and lasagna emojis. These were repeatedly added to then removed from several popular chat clients and websites. Changing emoji standardization or government conspiracy? YOU DECIDE.
