This font is an extended 1:1 rebuild of the main text font used in the Shadowrun game for Sega Genesis. I have added some common characters, diacritics, and other gylphs that don't show up in the game.

The base font size and recommended setting for Renraku is 8pt and multiples of that. Use metric kerning to keep the monospace layout and avoid additional smoothing effects for the ultimate pixel experience.

Shadowrun on the Genesis was developed by BlueSky Software and released by Sega in 1994. I picked the name of the font (Renraku) after one of the most notorious corporations appearing in the Shadowrun setting as well as in the game. The reason I rebuilt the font is that I needed the original appearance in an indie game project of my own.
