Assembleech-happy link.

Compo version above. For an updated, out-of-deadline version, see a few posts down.

Nothing terribly special about this one, but it does have small caps. I wanted it not to have angles or curves, so that it still looks good when blown way up, but I deviated from that in the end in some characters, so I'll probably make some alternates for those. I may also do katakana & hiragana just for the hell of it.



It's not supposed to be monospaced, so what would be the ideal way of formatting this for ease of use? Should I make it a .ttf?

Alright; I brought it into Fontstruct, as it's the easiest way to make a pixel font that I know. Other than it being usable now, it's much improved and expanded. Here's a sample:



Get it here.

There's still plenty of characters I'm iffy about. The numbers were a tad problematic, and I'm not sure why I went for text digits. I'll have to give them some more attention later, but at least they're already there.

Nice font there agj.  Looks like it will be very usable in the compo!

I made a few fixes to the most problematic characters, and made the numbers monospaced for them to line up properly more easily. It's available separate from the original version, since I'm releasing it after the deadline.

Looks like a  thicker version of the Edge font. Pretty rad Hand ClapGentleman

Yes, the gentleman has 3 arms. One to raise his hat, and the other two to clap.

That's one sinister name in the world of indie. For anything.

Also, that  Gentleman thing seems to sport a thicker version of a prehensile, gloved penis.

But I digress! Great font.
