Still dreaming of 24-pin printers...
This original 24×15 typeface is designed around the limitations presented by the near letter quality (NLQ) output of dot matrix printers (DMPs) during the '80s & '90s. Partially inspired by J. David Sapir's DOS font design program, LQMATRIX, it could have easily been created using that program back in the day.
(The "smart phone"-looking character in the À position is simply a placeholder, used as a quick reference to set vertical height lines while FontStructing.)
This is the font used in the Super Mario video games released in the early years of the Nintendo DS, such as Super Mario 64 DS, Mario Kart DS, and New Super Mario Bros.
I got these while playing the multiplayer mode of SM64DS. Your console nick was displayed in this font after every game, so I put nicknames with every single glyph available (about 150) and recreated all of them on Flipnote Studio years ago.
The initial set of glyphs included the basic signs and all non-English letters available on the DS keyboard. But there are some other glyphs that were not available on the keyboard, or the game recognised them as "?", such as #, %, æ, å, ø, or §. These are made by me (and therefore, not official), trying to mimic the style of the ones available, so the "Google Fonts Basic" block of glyphs is already complete.
This font can be complemented with its Filled version (https://fontstruct.com/fontstructions/show/1807795/super-mario-ds-version-outline-2) for better results.
Gigantic was inspired by Giant. But it had a flaw, a blown-out brick. Gigantic 2.0 eliminates that brick with a much simpler design. This font also represents my initial very basic (mis)understanding of the power of the connect bricks, which I have grown to love and embrace, and yet still not able to completely grasp.This is a clone of Gigantic Mono FS

An outline version of Blueback, with slightly different proportions, x-height: 2⅛ bricks.
Paperfold is a decorative typeface that is based on geometrical shapes and forms, imitating the paper folding technique.
This typeface features a condensed, modern and clean block look. Ideal for sporty, festive, adventurous design themes.
For the uppercase letters and symbols, most of it has a fold for every curve. While the lowercase letters and numbers, each first line has the fold imitation only, and the rest of the lines curve smoothly.
The typeface can also be converted to outline which features a maze-like appearance.
Finally done. Phew! It took two days to make this. This is a full collection of 5×7 Dot Matrix characters as seen on many devices, like Texas Instruments calculators. A lot of these are custom. Sources include TI-83, TI-86, TI-89, Casio Monochrome Graphing Calculators, Casio fx-115ES PLUS, and the rest, I created them myself. I included fractions for those themes on Microsoft Office don't have matching "1/3" and other fractions with the "1/4", "1/2", and "3/4". The fullwidth characters are substitutes for the other characters in the regular style, such as the math "x" and "y" from Casio.
Please note that character sets like Arabic and some Math Operators are beyond 5×7 pixels. If you want to know why? Because Arabic is very big and if I put it all in 5×7 pixels, the text will look weird, won't really fit inside, and there would be no point to it. I left it as is. Roman Numerals cannot fit if you were doing the "VIII" character, for example.
8/28/2019: Font created.
1/7/2020: Added characters in the following form: Fullwidth and Halfwidth are used for making TI-73 Explorer characters, plus actual monospace setting characters. Note that Runic, Tagalog, and Hanunoo are replaced with character variants. The last variation of a character is from Minecraft's font. The fractions are also changed to level the line spacing. The wide "M" is never ever for use on Monospacing.
1/8/2020: More variations are added, extended to replace Buhid. I also added other math symbols and more. To type x̄, press unicode shortcut and type 01b2. To type ȳ, press unicode shortcut and type 01b3. I also added over a hundred, or two hundred, more characters to stock up on the font. Oh and I changed the filters to separate the pixels for a more pixel and retro look. Also fixed the spacing on the "Щ" character.
9/8/2020: Added a bunch of more characters to the font set.
Note that this font is work in progress so you will recieve updates here.
A continuation of Tangereen. This version took a lot of figuring out and a lot of changes, both aesthetic and structural. I managed to make it different from other double-line designs like Glitzfang and Junglira while still keeping it simple and cute.This is a clone of Tangereen
A design with small caps... by which I mean the caps are lowercase :D
Includes A-z (Uppercase & lowercase are the same as each other)
Also includes 0-9, Double Quote ("), Single Quote ('), Question Mark (?), space ( ), and U with umlaut/diaresis (Ü).
I might make custom punctuation and accents, as well as the japanese font in the game.

A hollow/unfilled Laconica! :D
This was about five times as work-intensive as the original Laconica, even after accounting for the fact that I didn't add Greek to this one.This is a clone of Laconica
