dysin4mation is a font i made for my upcoming game, dy5phoria. it’s based on the typeface that appears on the title screen of dys4ia. mostly i just like this type for the As. it was also an opportunity to try out a new tool for making pixel fonts, which behaved exactly how i wanted it [...]

a truetype font for all of your sinister incantations and lists of unholy regents. for these digital sigils i tried to misalign lots of things, to break symmetry between a lot of characters, and also to put descenders in some unorthadox places (the M and the O). capital letters have ascenders and descenders, while the [...]
ladies and genderqueers, my first vector font! well, i sort of cheated. i built it out of tiles. i initially drew the characters in gallerynes. i restricted myself to just four shapes: a square, a convex curve, a triangle, and a concave curve. then i used fontstruct, which also allows for tile-based type building, to [...]
this truetype font is perfect for your ancient scrolls, weathered signs, and talking trees. it looks best at sizes divisible by six, and when delivering elder wisdom.
this font is inspired by the gameboy version of bubble ghost, with a few changes (in particular, i don’t care for the original Y). this is a layered font: type in lowercase for hollow letters, UPPERCASE for solid letters. type each in a different color and put one on top of the other for a [...]
i made this font for the message bar in my new game, something in the vein of midway / vid kidz arcade games. but as always you, my dears, are welcome to use it for whatever purposes you like. it’s a small, blocky font with tiny cut-outs.
there’s a shortage of italic pixel fonts – the typeface from link’s awakening is the only one that leaps to mind – so i threw together this truetype font based on the text from all roads lead from home, which has always been one of my favorites despite being a quick experiment. fixed width, capitals [...]
star perv is a truetype font. it’s a fixed width, all caps font: CAPITAL caps are taller than lowercase caps. it’s inspired by the typeface of universe 3. it looks best at sizes that are multiples of six (size six for the original pixels), without antialiasing. you’re free, even encouraged, to use this font in [...]
diddled bits is a truetype font. i drew the numbers for a game i’m working on, then decided i liked them enough to make a full font out of them. it was a kind of design challenge: none of the pixels were allowed to touch, even at corners. on one hand, this made the font [...]
casual encounter: truetype font for windows or mac computer. capitals fixed width, lowers vary. clean. looks good at original resolution as well as up close. curly quotes if you’re into that. likes being ordered around. doesn’t anti-alias without safeword. sizes 5, 16, 24, 48 and 72 preferred.
