Font from the ingame marquee display of Barcade Brawl, a 2015 game by yours truly. This was made to look similar to the system fonts from old arcade boards, PC microsystems, etc. You've probably seen the fonts I'm talking about; they're everywhere and many people refer to them singularly as "the arcade font" or "the NES font".

This is 7x7 with no wasted matrix, but it looks better without monospacing since not every glyph is the same width. It also makes a decent terminal & chat font, at least for those who don't care about the case of the messages they read and write.

Feel free to use this in your games, etc.!


Original size: 5.25pt (use multiples of this size for pixel perfection)

Added a bunch of language support. If any Greek or Russian readers have suggestions for how to improve those, I'd love to hear them!

How about this for the capital and lowercase ΢?

Which glyph is that? I must not have the right language packs installed on my PC, because I only see a box in the line you typed.

@Zeph u+03A2

Ah, found it. I had to enable Unicode letter sets while looking at the Greek band. I wasn't seeing that codepoint before. All the new glyphs show up as boxes so I can't tell which codepoint has the lowercase version.

Lowercase of it is u+03C2

I would enable more language support on this PC, but it seems to affect performance a lot... better for me to find a good Unicode chart, I think.
