Recreation of the pixel font from Codemasters' "Rockstar Ate My Hamster" (1988). Slightly expanded with a few additional custom characters not present in the original game.

Edited (11/2016) to fix some of the characters, based on a more accurate source (C64 emulation of the game) and to include the "BLACK LARGE SQUARE" (U+2B1B) unicode character.

Edited/fixed version

The game's name made me chuckle :) The style of font must have been rather unusual at the time; somehow it reminds me of Comic Sans. 10/10

I think it has been also used in another game by Colin Jones - Slightly Magic (Spectrum version). Thanks for making this. I have a soft spot for Rockstar and it's such an obscure game. The font always looked very distictive.

@demoniczulu i wasn't familiar with that game, but judging by screenshots i've now seen i'd say you're right. good info!
