lol dpla "J'M" MonChéri! I once made chocolates like it as presents to family and friends :° This  year it's "Jardin-le-font" in FS blackcurrant flavour. I don't distill, I buy eaux-de-vie. Hippy, right on! ;)

If you can see berries everywhere, it might be high time to stop assessing your medicinal liqueur? (Aeo is a hippy home distiller ;-)) (Now I must go and buy some Mon Chéris… an artificial substitute for the oppidans.)

… thus from only 3 letters; well done! I'm still unsure about your "E" (thin horizontal bar, strictly logical). And the rest may get more difficult to complete with the digits etc. Cool tribute as it is, already.

Hi! Is it just me, or there's some a 6-year lineage? ;-)

["Phatprogy" (2011-11-29) → "Kiova Captura" (2012-12-01) → "Stratus" (2015-06-14) → "Nouveaumbre" (2017-11-20)]

Subtle serifs!

It's like afrojet's "Breakout" (you might want to add this tag)… but in 3D! I am looking forward to seeing more glyphs (b.t.w. "Z" even shows a wandering pixel above… whyyyy? ;-)) 10x7 virtual 2D matrix, I'd say (max 70 bricks per glyph).

Interesting to see more black discs than squares in these designs of dot-matrix/LEDs (VCD222…)/beads, lately on FontStruct! This kind of block element needs more resolution

In practice, when I'll need to compare your font with the valid ones in US-ASCII (94 characters to begin with = an actual font (amongst other codes)), I'll discard or recolor in red

Cool lettering for Nabbi/Hama/Perler/Beedz etc. amateurs. I'd love to see a different matrix (diagonal, circular etc.), and different elements (not just discs). (And more characters too, if you want or need them.)

So, this font is cool, with plenty of code points (a great effort), but it's still invalid to me, both in US-ASCII and in strict 3x5, which is deceptive

@xXx XBox Gamer - It seems to happen more often to 'older' fonts, as I recently had to re-stack / fix some bricks on one of my fonts from several years ago.

@xXx XBox Gamer - More than likely the "flaws" you noticed are stacked bricks that occassionally get mixed-up or 'forgotten' by FontStruct as improvements are made to the FS system over time...
