Another attempt to make a readable font narrower than Arial Narrow. I am basing the letters on ovals now, to try to make them easier for my eyes to deal with at small sizes.This is a clone of Urial
The idea is to read other alphabets as if they were Roman.This is a clone of CheckovsFun
Pixel + Serif
Best at pixel size (12px)
Because of the pixel design I was able to create lots of characters. Even control pictures (no matter if someone needs them). If you need more, just ask.
Cyrillic and IPA under construction.
I used Tile Molester (I didn't name it that way!) and extracted the Earthbound and Mother 2 font (English ROM and Japanese ROM) that was used in the game's menu and tried to combine and insert them here myself. (I used the Earthbound's Latin instead of Mother 2's bolder one, because most recognize it that way)
I've added a few hundred more glyphs to it, hoping this may come in handy for some fans out there. ^^ I'll add more languages (maybe use all the glyphs available) if you request it, otherwise, I'll only leave it at 878 glyphs. ;D
This font includes:
- Basic Latin
- More Latin
- Extended Latin A
- Extended Latin B
- Greek and Coptic
To reference the game a little more... Katakana Middle Dot, More Latin's Middle Dot, and More Latin's Bullet are actually the middle dots that you see in the Japanese and English character naming screen, respectively. ^^
I don't have status conditions and the battle font in here, because it's pretty much its own font and I honestly can't find it in the game's file for some reason... (no clue what settings to use see those)
Carthage Sans LKE is an expanded version of my Carthage Sans font, which in itself is a reimagining of Apple's Espy Sans 12 bitmap font. It aims to cover as much as possible of the Latin, Cyrillic, and Greek blocks of the Unicode standard (thus the initials -- "Latina, Kirilitsa, Elleniki"). I'm open to expanding it to any of the other scripts Unicode covers, but I have little to no personal experience with most other alphabets; if you'd like to contribute, I'd particularly be interested in Arabic, Devanagari, Katakana, Hiragana, Armenian, and Hangul. (I would like to add Hebrew as well, but it's hard to get the diacritics right in what's essentially a pixel font. We'll see.) The current status as of 10/28/2015 (the date of initial publication):
-Latin: all of Latin-1, Latin Extended-A, and "Even More Latin"; Latin Extended-B is missing some characters that seem to be mostly either phonetic notation or obsolete.
-Greek: All Greek characters supported by FontStruct. If you need some of the ancient dialect characters like Pamphylian digamma, they're now in the GitHub version; polytonic will appear there as well, if anyone asks for it. Basic Coptic support is there, although I tried to fit it into the Espy Sans aesthetic rather than trying to duplicate the Byzantine-Egyptian traditional style.
-Cyrillic: Still a work in progress, but all Slavic languages using Cyrillic characters should be covered. The main holdup is Abkhazian, which is spoken by just over 110,000 people in the world and also has one of the longest alphabets in the world; I have no idea how many of them would be interested in this, so it hasn't been a huge priority. (Besides, the PT family from Russia's Paratype is excellent and far better than I could do with most Cyrillized languages.) I've emphasized support for several languages, the most important being Vietnamese (75 million speakers deserve some support no matter how tedious it is to do so).
I've also added characters for Old Irish, Old Church Slavonic, and Icelandic. There's a number of characters used in pan-African linguistics I am not sure if I need or not; they'll get filled in eventually alongside the Cyrillic, but how fast I have no idea.

I am deeply indebted to Keith Martin (@thatkeith on Twitter), formerly of the UK MacUser magazine, and his Espy Sans Revived project for a reference for the original letter bitmaps; Carthage is entirely my work but it's hard to find Espy Sans specimens in the wild, and his work is probably the best.This is a clone of Carthage Sans
Now #11 in char count!
