Logotype made by request for a friend.
A font wherein each glyph is depicted through the placement of exactly 5 pixels on a 5x5 grid. This was inspired by basketball where only 5 players per team are on the court at once.
I feel these glyphs could be useful for board games since it takes very few pieces to render these shapes.
Cybernaut turned inside-out! The result is mostly illegible except when used at multiples of the original size and with antialiasing turned off. At the original size (2x Pixel size), it's capable of some magnificent cybernetic aesthetics.
Original size: 21pt (use multiples of this size for pixel perfection)This is a clone of Cybernaut
An experimental 15-segment display which looks rather like a fence.
There's no DE-FENSE against DE-FENCE!

Nirvanite Fossil with round shapes changed to diamonds.
I think this one is the toughest to read in the family - even harder than Nirvanite Pixel. Oh well!This is a clone of Nirvanite Fossil
Pixelated demake of Nirvanite Fossil. It introduces more size variation than its predecessors, and proves even harder to read. The size variation was necessary to prevent these sprites from being too large and to make them more unique from the glyphs in Nirvanite Fossil.
Original size: 25pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
Alternate take on Nirvanite, this time with bullseyes rather than solid circles as the large segments.
This one is a lot more organic than its predecessor, but also a lot more confusing. Looks like clusters of alien tadpole eggs to me!This is a clone of Nirvanite
Pandora's Blocks is a new kind of box. A better box. A box that contains things unheard of in the world of humans, a box that dissolves problems and anxieties and casts them unto the wind, a box that turns the words you say and the thoughts you think into ambrosia. Do the right thing and don't not not de-un-open the box. There are bad things living in there.

Experimental mosaic... or maybe a new mineral species?
This one started as a doodle. I began placing circles to see what kinds of complex shapes I could make, and this was the result.
It achieves a new visual effect at almost every size up to the original. Also try slowly moving the zoom slider for some interesting animations!
This font is now nearly 1MB in size! I guess it has to do with the intrinsic complexity of circles.
A font which looks like sunbursts, fires, explosions, and more depending on its presentation. Seems like a design that would be used when its ability to get noticed is more important than its legibility...
A single line is bent on itself to trace letterforms in 5x5.
This is part of my "IVO" series (Inline Versus Outline) wherein inline and outline elements are split, merged, and altered to make them ambiguous and to allow new styles to emerge. They may look like maze fonts, but they have a different design methodology altogether.
Want to see a magic trick? This font quickly loses readability when it is shrunk or enlarged from its original size! It's like an anti-font, judging you for wanting to use it.
I think this makes excellent placeholder text at small sizes, though to the uninitiated it might just look like blurry Braille.This is a clone of CelLCD
Experimental 12-segment display. This is my attempt at making an ultra-small segmented display suitable for printing on actual pixel art screens. As far as I know, this is the first fusion of Latin-style microfont and segmented display.
Initially I tried making this with 3px long segments, but the result looked almost exactly like Calculatrix 12. So I shrank it down to 5x5 to ensure it would take on its own look.
Of course, your pixel art style still needs to be a pretty big one for this font to work well - I recommend a display area of 82*7px or more.

87.10 degree slanted font for Italicized italic italic Ultra-Italic italic Italian italics. Thanks for making me design a whole family of fonts that hurt my eyes, Zuloph. :P
After I made RC Vertigo, Zu said he could still read it. I began to create increasingly slanted designs, and this one was finally the one he couldn't read.
No symbols/numerals for this one. I consider it to be machine-readable only at this point...

Numbers are motifs of Chinese numeralsfont in which the alphabet pronunciation of katakana notation is rotated and compressed.
upper case is based on German, lower is based on English.

Designed for illegibility. In theory, leverages neuroplasticity so you can read it after practice and nobody else can. May not be useful to anybody else. May not even work for me. Experimental.
Note: This is named "Cryptonomicon Basis", as the general form of the letters is the Cryptonomicon and this is the reference font- other fonts can be made with the same letter form and still implement Cryptonomicon.
palph is a hard-to-read font. It supports katakana and hiragana.
Lower case is the mirror character.
