3x3 cipher, based on version 0.3 of "Micromaze". It uses its own form of binary notation for the numerals, wherein the upper-right 4 pixels play the role of the 1, 2, 4, and 8.

This is the smallest font in which I was able to give a unique symbol to every glyph (excluding the lower/upper case, which look the same). It reads sort of like Pigpen Cipher, but is more densely written.

Since MMC is obscure and of constant width/height, it serves many "gibberish" and "placeholder text" purposes in addition to being a modestly strong cipher.

Original size: 2pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)

Neat font but I do have one question. Shouldn't 9 be more like a reverse of 6 (minus the bottom left dot obviously). that would be 8+1. the character currently used would be 8+2=10

You're right. I must have flipped that one around in my head while drawing it.
