A font made to reskin a particular roguelike game. This is made to look cold and slightly insidious. I accomplished this by using a 6x6 grid which, apart from being a slightly odd size, gives the forms asymmetry and makes their enclosed parts look as if they're squinting or sneering. Best seen on letters like ABKPRVY.
Monospacing helps give the whole thing regularity and reinforces the clinical/overly-serious feeling.
The game this is made for has very few ASCII glyphs. But, I will expand this to support all ASCII characters soon. I know many games (CDDA, DCSS, DF) support new tilesets so maybe I'll optimize this for those kinds of games...

Font used in my game "Anime Girls vs. The Cavemen". UPPERCASE for the caveman speak, lowercase for the anime speak.
A 6x6 font made to look thief-esque. Like a master thief, it attempts to hide in plain sight - putting on an "official" look, or even one that's reminescent of Merchants Guild. But something's wrong. Parts of it are a bit crooked, and the trained eye can easily see it for what it is. APPREHEND IT!
Original size: 5.25pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
Handwritten medieval pixel font in 6x6. This one is made to have an eloquent, enchanting look - the sort of look merchants might use to advertise and sell goods.
Original size: 6pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
Symbols used on board Marengi Mk.0 and later ships.
- SEMIOTIC STANDARD -
1. All symbols are to be sized at least 72cm high for physical signage/labels and at least APX2.2 for use on electronic displays.
2. All symbols are to be prominently placed such that personnel do not obscure them as they perform their duties.
3. All labels/signage will use a strongly photoreactive pigment of hexadecimal color #E43B44 for the outline. All electronic versions will use the aforementioned hex color for their outlines as well.
Semibold version of Nobody's Treasure. Most glyphs have the same width as before, and the overall width of the font is the same.This is a clone of Nobody's Treasure
8x8 grid (6x6 capital letters) font. Full version: https://www.dafont.com/staxblox.font
A connected script which attempts to depict an obvious ductus or flow to the writing. To set this one apart even more from my others, I built the capitals on a 6x6 grid.
The name comes from yet another old joke band.
Original size: 5.25pt (use multiples of this size for pixel perfection)
This is a new 6x6 pixel font with slab serifs on the upper-case letters with the exception of the letter"O", and half slab drop serifs on the lower-case letters again with exception of the letter "o". The numerals, except the zero, all have half slab serifs. All punctuations are without serifs.
Each letter is contained within its own box with upper-case boxes being deeper than lower-case letters, numerals and punctuations.
As you will notice I have used the new white bricks for the glyphs but stayed with the standard black bricks for the boxes. The white bricks are easily read by scanners which means they will have a great future in producing apparently blank bar-codes for useless pricing systems which are meaningless to consumers. White brick fonts are being looked at favourably by oriental, and other, manufacturers who see a great future in their use in cost saving printing of undecipherable assembly instructions.
FOR SOME STRANGE REASON THERE SEEMS TO BE AN INORDINATE INTEREST IN PIXEL FONTS FROM THE 1970'S AND 80'S. OK, ITS FUN FOR YOUNGER TYPOGRAPHERS TO WORK WITHIN STRICT RESTRICTIONS RECREATING FONTS THAT WERE DESIGNED YEARS AGO, LETS BE FAIR, THERE ARE ONLY SO MANY COMBINATIONS OF PIXLES WITHIN A 6X6 GRID.
WHAT DOES SUPPRISE ME IS THAT NO ONE HAS LOOKED BACK AT THE FIRST (I THINK) HOME COMPUTER, NAMELY THE ZX81 WHICH WAS RELEASED BY CLIVE SINCLAIR, AN ENGLISH ELECTRONICS CO. IN 1981. IT HAD 1 KB OF RAM (NO JOKE), 8 KB OF ROM AND A CPU THAT RAN AT AN AMAZING 3.25 MHZ. DATA WAS STORED ON CASSETTE TAPES AND THE SCREEN WAS YOUR TELEVISION.
AS NO ONE HAS CHECKED OUT THE ZX81 I HAVE MADE A FONT THAT IS SIMILAR TO THE ORIGINAL FONT USED BY THE COMPUTER. I HAVE USED 5 BRICKS WHERE AS THE ORIGINAL USED ONLY 1. BEAT THAT!
