TrueType & OTF Video Game Pixel Fonts

TrueType & OTF Video Game Pixel Fonts

As a graphic designer with a passion for fonts, a love for video games and a heart caught in nostalgia, I like to rebuild the fonts from beloved old-school video games whenever I find the time to do so.

All my recreations listed below are based on original pixel or bitmap fonts created by the designers of the respective games they appeared in and thus not my original design. I have, however, greatly expanded most font sets with a variety of more common diacritic characters, numbers, and unique game-specific glyphs.

You may use the fonts for any non-commercial purposes and you'll also find webfont-ready files inside the download archives to boost your retro power homepage with. You're not allowed to redistribute these font files or pass them off as your own, though, so please be nice, give credit if possible and, most importantly, have fun with the fonts! For anything else, contact me » cava@caveras.net.

The character set of this font was greatly expanded with countless additional special characters, diacritic variants, unique glyphs and the like, each one of them designed to match the spirit and style of the original font design.

To recreate the original in-game appearance of this font with programs like Photoshop and the like I recommend using the OpenType font file included in the download package in combination with font sizes that are multiples of 32pt while avoiding anti-aliasing or other font smoothing methods.

Note: Depending on how you use it, the TrueType font file might have some appearance issues due to the font's somewhat irregular measurements, which is why I recommend using the OTF file for now. I try to update the font with correct TrueType measurements as soon as possible.

TrueType & OTF Video Game Pixel Fonts

My Own Pixel Font Creations

As a graphic designer with a passion for fonts, a love for video games and a heart caught in nostalgia, I like to rebuild the fonts from beloved old-school video games whenever I find the time to do so.

Sometimes I also like to create some own designs, some of which you will find on this page.

You may use the fonts for any non-commercial purposes and you'll also find webfont-ready files inside the download archives to boost your retro power homepage with. You're not allowed to redistribute these font files or pass them off as your own, though, so please be nice, give credit if possible and, most importantly, have fun with the fonts! For anything else, contact me » cava@caveras.net.
