A vaguely Courierlike OSD (Onscreen Display) font which tries its best to be casual. The name is inspired by the old computer joke: "Who is General Failure and why is he reading my hard disk?"
No filters or faux-beziers, just stock bricks and a bit of stacking/nudging!
More about the design:
It started as a doodle and an attempt to make a smooth, low-resolution, low-poly font, and then it became a Courierlike. I have other fonts that tried to do polygonal round shapes before this (such as Cartoon Riot) but this design is my first real success in this area.
Initially, I made the angled glyphs before the round ones. I didn't want to change the angled ones, so glyphs like C, O, and Q became a bit wider than they are tall. I'm quite fond of this, because in most designs these glyphs tend to have a tall and narrow character. I think the mildly squat look of this font makes it cuter and gives it more personality.
A lot of glyphs were altered in specific ways to look more like metal type, especially anything with diacritics which touch the letters themselves. Other glyphs were altered specifically to be interpretable at small size. I also use angled contours and actual round bricks alongside each other within the same glyphs, another technique which is geared toward style and interpretability at small size.
This font came with many new challenges and an array of new techniques had to be designed. Loops were an insurmountable challenge because of the low resolution and heavy line weight, so I drew rounded areas to suggest them. You can see it on letters like Greek γ, ζ, and ξ.
3x3 slab serif. This is based on Wallerton, Anachronistic Gunslinger, an IRC-based "TV show" which I used to write and produce. All the characters in the show were my AIs pretending they were cowboys.
Well, I managed to successfully produce a lowercase for this one!
Recommended: Use with kerning.
Typewriter from Print Shop by Broderbund Software. Despite it's name, it's a proportional font not monospaced.
A grunged-up/faded Gumshoe. Made to be used at smaller sizes for a faded & distressed look. It can be used with or without antialiasing, and will generate many optical effects which look like grunge or sponge brushes. It also has a bit of an "ink flow" effect where serifs overflow a bit into each other (see "S", "2", etc.).

Trying a Courier style. The lowercase has a slightly bottom-heavy design, while the uppercase keeps it consistent. Serifs everywhere!
It fits into typewriter/detective type aesthetics as well as rustic and western ones.
This one is made for a friend. We'll see if they ever end up using it. :v
EDIT: It seems as if said friend is never going to make their webzine... so, feel free to do with this one as you wish.
A serif-ized Derpberd which works within the limitations of the original font.
I welcome suggestions for this one. It's my first time attempting a methodical serifed look, and the small size of this font makes it a challenge.This is a clone of Derpberd
Kulibin or Kulidyaka? Kulich?

A font no one asked for, with no discernible use case, Refraktury (inspired by Volker Busse's F25 Blackletter Typewriter font) is a monospaced black letter font, suitable for typesetting math the hard way, illegible code listings, and oddly kerned newspaper marquees. It's a simplified mix of several different styles, mostly Fraktur and Schwabacher. It covers the ISO Latin-1 block, because why in the world would you care if it covers anything else?!
