Mostly built pixel-by-pixel with the characters as a guide. Added a handful of easy-to-make punctuation.
SUPER MA(RE-)O BROS.
A bitmap typeface family that recaps the classic fonts that were used for 1985 Nintendo Entertainment System game "Super Mario Bros."
-- It's a large piece that covers a bit of everything. And two seporate typefaces will be published the following days to accompany this one seemlessly.
both more less finished as well, but changes were made in this one that requires the other two to be fixed again in order to seemlessly work together before getting published, So stay tuned!
About this fist part:
It combines not just the two (title screen and ingame regular text)fonts used for this game, but also includes dingbats related to the game, and combines it all into one single typeface!
The sample will only display correctly at exact pixel size or double the value of this due to dither gradients that otherwise not show as a solid surfaces.
Basic and Extended Latin - letters seen at title screen
Superscripts and Subscripts - regular text font (only partial alphabet, as according to the unicode standard for this block)
Miscellaneous Symbols - miscellaneous dingbats related to the game such as emoji's and blocks to make seemless ornamental features like seen ingame
Halfwidth and Fullwidth Forms - regular text font but with full suport for both uppercase & lowercase, as well as numerals and basic punctuation.
8x8 pixel art generator. It can be used to draw at any size once you understand how it works. Feel free to write your own scripts/code to automatically draw with this!
Glyphs are mapped to pixels as follows:
ABCDEFGH will make a horizontal line at the bottom edge, HPXfnv3. would make a vertical line on the right edge, and so on.
- INSTRUCTIONS -
Type to draw! See the sample for an example of how I do it.
1 space = 1px of spacing. Use 8 spaces to start a new block and 16 spaces to start a second block which is 8px away from the first. This fine space exists to allow any sort of pixel art to be drawn within an infinitely large "canvas".
- COMING SOON -
A guide to preparing any text for PixelGen 8x8 (I'm figuring this out now!)
If you draw something with this font, feel free to show it off in a comment. This is an unusual way to draw, but it has many unforeseen potential uses!
One form of beauty in this type of art is that your code IS the art. And, the code and art are yours to recreate and modify endlessly as you desire, all without ever having to draw, save/load files, or even touch an image editor.

A pixel rendition of Bolton Sans by designer Paul Lloyd. For a game concept of mine.
This is a redone version, as the original had issues that I couldn't seem to fix. But hey, this time it has more characters!
If you want to use this commercially, I guess I'd suggest getting permission from both of us?
The font used in Super Mario 64 when speaking to people or reading signs. These characters are mostly derived from the game and used to recreate the font. Glyphs such as the asterisk and curly bracket are made with modified or existing characters used in-game (star instead of asterisk, curly bracket made from parenthesis, etc.)
The only "Kool" thing that's changed around here are 0-9, so they can look just like the numbers from Kid Kool on the NES, created by Vic Tokai.This is a clone of Arcade Classic
Remember Super Mario Bros. 2: The Lost Levels? Yeah... me too. Dear god, Nintendo sure knows how to make things a lot painful back then. Here's something to remember the good-old frustrating days! A font based on The Lost Levels!This is a clone of Super Mario Bros. NES
Stomping on Goombas? Collecting coins? Spitting Fire Flowers? Traveling through the Mushroom Kingdom? Say no more. You may need this for your adventure.

A fan-favorite for many gaming geeks! A blast from the past from the 1980s! A video game font that everybody has came to know and love over the years!
