Just a simple pixel font I created for use in pixel webcomics. It has a constant height which makes it good for use in speech bubbles, titlebars, and the like. I made this one to look "open" and to have lots of negative space despite its diminutive size. This family of fonts is getting pretty large, so if you make pixel webcomics (or anything else that needs tiny text in neat rows), check 'em out!
This font is used by several Twitch streamers and in several games as well as in my own pixel comics.
04 Feb 2018 - v1.0 released
12 Mar 2018 - v1.1 released. More Latin added.
A bold variant of Derpberd, again made to have a constant height in order to be suitable for pixel comics. Most of the character widths are unchanged, but some (like m and w) had to become 1px wider for the bold style to work.
08 Feb 2018: version 1.0 declared finished. I'm not sure where else I can take this one without breaking the "constant height" rule. Perhaps I'll clone it and make a version with an extended character set, but only if people ask. :^)This is a clone of Derpberd
A mostly-4x5 design made for legibility, aesthetics, and an almost authoritarian regularity. This makes it suited for comics, tutorials, general reading, and more. It can be easily read at its original size with the same effort it would take to read a high-res design of the same size.
This design has been tested and reported to make an excellent font for IRC and other chat clients!
Original size: 4.5pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
An improved version of Derpberd which remains true to the original style.
It's still very casual-looking and very well suited to comics and pixel art, but it's also more regular and readable than before.This is a clone of Derpberd
A variant of Micro Machina which is made to be more open, more consistent, and simpler in geometry than the original.
Having become accustomed to reading the original Micro Machina, I'm not sure if this version is actually more readable or not. Some might prefer it...
By request, a chat/comics font which combines features of "Micro Machina" and "Chlorophyte". I took some other liberties with it as well in order to make it more distinctive (see MSVWacegjmtyz).
This turned out extremely well! It's more open and airy than many of my larger designs, and is pleasant and easy to read even at the original size.
Supports Dutch and English.
I saw Hypnospace Outlaw being played and the in-game browser font made me feel a bit neurotic. Here's a font that looks more like Micro Machina than it does Hypnospace Outlaw, but watching that game made me create this design, so I'm still calling it Hypnoverse.
To make this font look more distinct from other 4x5s, I condensed some glyphs (Lfjrtx) and altered others (QVbdgjkmpqvwy0469). These changes make this font very condensed and extremely easy to read at original size, even when sitting way back. However, they also make it slightly worse for terminals and chats in my view, since now smaller sets of glyphs are the same width (lines won't line up as much since more words and numbers will vary in width). So, whereas Micro Machina has a bit more regularity, this has a bit more style and takes up a bit less space.
If you came hoping for the actual Hypnospace Outlaw font, I'm happy to FontStruct it if asked. (EDIT: It has since been done by another user.)
I took "Hypnoverse" and applied handwriting techniques to it. These figures are more like those I draw when I write with a pen, though still very distinct from my actual handwriting due to the low resolution.
This looks very natural to me, moreso than any other 4x5 design I've seen. It needs to be 2x original size or larger for the best effect, though, since its forms aren't nearly as open as the others. This may not be a problem for you... maybe I've just been staring at it too long...
At this point, I am confident that none of these glyphs can be improved further. The best they can do is change to suit someone else's preferences. Would you draw a particular glyph differently? If so, please show your ideas. I have gone over every 4x5 glyph several dozen times through as many designs, and think I have found the best solution for each - but maybe I'm wrong! I am especially interested in solutions for m and w; I have tried compressing and truncating them to be 4-wide before, but never successfully got anything that LOOKED like an m or w.This is a clone of Hypnoverse
