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.

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 [...]

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.
another new truetype font. crypt of tomorrow was created for a lowres horror game that i keep redesigning. these chunky characters look good at just about any size (the above is 24), but try size 5 for their original (four by five pixel) resolution.
