The 5x5 pixel font used for the Virtual Gremlin, an old emulator/game I wrote. The standard font for ingame text.
This font was also designed to work well with IRC clients and ASCII games (see sample).
Breaking the 5x5 grid was unfortunate but necessary in order to make legible characters in non-Latin languages.
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.
Original size: 7.5pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
Experimental sliced sans serif. My goal here was to make a design which would result in an extremely compact and durable physical stencil. Almost all of the sharp points and acute angles are within the negative space, so it should be easy and very safe to make, handle and work with this stencil.
1.3 - added More Latin and Google Fonts Basic bands.
1.2 - added uppercase, changed name to "Aegris Stencil".
1.1 - edited for more readability at small size. Glyphs with enclosed loops were altered so that the "movement" of the segments always runs clockwise.
1.0 - released.
A stencil design in which diagonal cuts are used to imply angles and curves. It does not quite obey the rules of a segmented display, but it tries its best!
This is inspired by some text I put on the side of the Sheepslayer Mk.2, a flying dragon car piloted by Lyll "Hatch" Soretti in my game Seven Candles.
A 5x5 Greek pixel font designed by request for a friend. This is going to be used in some amusing comics! Too bad I won't be able to read them. :D
(This also supports Dutch and English.)
Telos Unicase with overzealous antialiasing applied to it. It looks as if it were automatically antialiased by 16-bit hardware - a bit smudgy, almost pencil-shaded. Check it out at 2x Pixel size!
Despite its simple looks, this font is just about the densest thing I can create on a 5x5 grid without obfuscating the letters themselves.
While using this font I discovered some unforeseen uses for shaded styles such as this. Since the "antialiasing" occurs in only one shade and never overlaps or replaces solid pixels, it can be easily mass-selected. One can quickly and easily recolor sections of the font, convert it to the non-antialiased version, or clone the layer the translucent pixels are on and achieve more interesting effects.This is a clone of Telos Unicase
Making a pixel font series.
Things that don't look good: (x, 1/4, 1/2)
Best font size: multiples of 7This is a clone of 5x5 pxl
A decolike boldtype. Based on a design from my game "Seven Candles", particularly the text used on documents and signs at the Lower Netazecan Embassy. The "hallmark" of this design is a sudden increase in line width midline, best seen on glyphs like EFLTZ3<>^.
"Embassy L" is a play on "Imbecile".
This design was previously as "Frenchfry" because Razma's (one of my AI) image recognition classified several letterforms as french fries.
Pixel cursive, mostly on a 5x5 grid. Maybe this is the terminal font for some cybernetic old lady's computer? :D
It was possible to build every letter in 5x5, but it honestly looks far better when letters with descenders are allowed to descend a bit. This also works to increase the line spacing, which this font really needs for readability.
Original size: 5.25pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
An unconventional way to construct 5x5 pixel-based font using nudging facility to give an effect of distortion. Aaand yes, it's readable at pixel size.
A space-esque design made for a friend! The angular counters give this a simplified geometry which makes it easy to read despite its looks. Works well for small- or large-scale applications - chat, terminals, logos, and more. Supports Dutch, English, and Greek!
The original was cloned off and preserved elsewhere. The version you see here has centered glyphs.
Pixel demake of Arizone Unicase. Same glyphs as the original.
