Logotype made by request for a friend.
A recreation of the 7x6 in-game font used in the 16-bit game Flashback on the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis and Super Nintendo consoles.
An alternate system font for the Virtual Gremlin, a software-based games prototyping system I wrote in 2016-2017. This font ended up never being used.
This was only able to be recovered due to the advent of a lucky screenshot which a friend posted online. The font was in a spritesheet which was being shown off, so I was able to FontStruct it!
By request: A squareish serif. 5x7 with no wasted matrix.
It makes a decent companion font to Gumshoe.
Recreation of the main pixel font from LJN/Software Creation's "Spider-Man and Venom: Maximum Carnage" (1994) on the SNES and Sega Mega Drive / Genesis. Only the characters present in the game's tile set have been included.
Recreation of the pixel font from Technōs' "Double Dragon II: The Revenge" (1990) on the NES. Only the characters present in the game's tile set have been included.
Recreation of the large pixel font from Konami's "Castlevania: Bloodlines" (aka "Castlevania: The New Generation", 1994) on the Sega Mega Drive. This font is used for the map, level start/end messages, and boss names in the end titles. Only the characters present in the game's tile set have been included.
Another free 5x5 pixel font for game developers.
This one has a vaguely authoritarian quality thanks to the hard 90° angles.
Looks like a Game Boy font to me!
Feel free to use it in your games.
A 4x5 design made for legibility, aesthetics, and an almost authoritarian regularity. This makes it suited for comics, tutorials, general reading, and more. It can be easily read at its original size with the same effort it would take to read a high-res design of the same size.
This design has been tested and reported to make an excellent font for IRC and other chat clients! I'm now using it for that myself...
Original size: 4.5pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)

A 7x7 outline design which is made to form solid-looking masses from the glyphs while still allowing the outer perimeters of words to take on some unique shapes.
Original size: 5.25pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
A 5x5 design made to be very open and airy.
It has a much higher degree of internal consistency than most of my other designs. This was achieved by opening up the forms (A,E,F,J,K,P,Q,R,W,X,Y), minimizing the use of diagonals (A,K,X,Y,Z), using a soft 1px break to indicate curves (B,C,D,G,O,P,Q,R,U), and squaring off a few areas that are normally angled or rounded (M,S,W,Z).
"Ash Isotope" = "Apotheosis". Bit of an in-joke between friends. :^)
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
Recreation of the pixel font from Compile/Tonkin House/ASCII Corporation's "Gun-Nac" (1990) on the NES. Note the diamond character, used for menu/shop item selection, mapped to U+25C6. Only the characters present in the game's tile set have been included.
Recreation of the pixel font from Nintendo's "The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening" (1993) on the Game Boy.
This recreation includes the special/accented characters from the french and german releases of the game. In game, the characters with a diaeresis use an additional tile above them - in this recreation, the characters have been combined properly (and as a result, the height of the font overall is greater than 8px).
As an aside, this font was also used for the fan translation of "For frog the bell tolls" (aka "カエルの為に鐘は鳴る" / "Kaeru no Tame ni Kane wa Naru", 1992/2011).
Only the characters present in the game's tile set have been included.
Recreation of the pixel font from Capcom's "LED Storm" (1988) on the Amiga (and Atari ST).
Gameplay-wise, this is a port of "LED Storm Rally 2011", rather than the more common "LED Storm" (aka "Mad Gear", 1988) arcade machine.
Only the characters used in the game have been included.
Recreation of the pixel font from Sega/Westone's "Wonder Boy in Monster Land" (1988) on the Sega Master System. Alphanumeric characters are the same as "Space Harrier" (1985) - the classic "Sega font". Punctuation and special characters are unique to this game, though. Only the characters present in the game's tile set have been included.This is a clone of Space Harrier (Original)
Recreation of the pixel font from Bits Studio/Flying Edge's "Terminator 2: Judgement Day" (1991) on the Sega Mega Drive. In game, the font uses a subtle form of antialiasing on the top-left-most pixel, which has been omitted from this recreation. Only the characters present in the game's tile set have been included.
Recreation of the large pixel font from Nintendo's "The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past" (1991). This is the extended version, which includes additional accented/extended versions of characters (based on the different european releases of the game).This is a clone of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (Big)
Recreation of the large pixel font from Nintendo's "The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past" (1991). Only the characters present in the game's tile set have been included.
Stylized 5x5 pixel font. Tiny but power-packed!
I designed it to have a slightly balloon-esque, oldschool arcade look. Feel free to use it in your games :D
This is also designed to answer the question of whether tiny pixel fonts can have distinctive styles that haven't been seen yet. Of course they can! See the 5x5 Collection for many more.
Original size: 7.5pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
A chimera which combines inline-versus-outline, maze, Gemscript, and other techniques to produce a timeless look.
Original size: 6.75pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
1. Square bricks only.
2. A 1px soft border of negative space must exist between lines whenever possible.
3. Glyphs must fill the 9x9 grid to the greatest extent possible given the rounded style.
4. The set of glyphs shall be a heterogeneous mix of symmetrical and asymmetrical forms.
5. Negative space will replace positive in any situation wherein the small grid size or the geometry of a letterform would be detrimental to the chosen style. This includes all situations where any shape lacks at least a soft 1px border of negative space around it.

Recreation of the large pixel font from Taito's "GunBuster" (aka "Gun Buster", "Operation Gunbuster", 1992). Only the characters present in the game's tile set have been included.
