This is an expansion of the GUI/Menu font used in the 16-bit Earthbound games (Earthbound; Mother 3). This is usually referred to as the Apple Kid font, according to EarthBound Central.

The expansion is based off of Noto Sans by Google, as the font contains a majority of the Unicode glyphs, some of which are shown as □ in the FontStructor and many other fonts; that means that there are glyphs hiding in those □'s!

4/30/2024: EMOJI IS NOW IN BETA! I am now a FontStruct Patron, so I can add color to my font. While the main font is monochrome, I will be adding some EarthBound-themed emojis (limited to 8 colors)! Stay tuned!
6/16/2024: Emoji is now on hiatus until the newer more-supported color font system rolls out to all Patrons. SVG Fonts don't work on Windows 10 unfortunately and don't have much support outside of Adobe, Sketch and some browsers.

Color font can be experimented with:

1:1 pixel size is 11 or 12 size font.

The majority of all Unicode glyphs will be added soon.

Here are some things I may need help with:

1. Arabic. Normally, characters are joined like connected lines, and this font does not do that. If someone can give advice on replicating that, let me know!

Currently a work in progress. Expect some changes here and there occasionally.

Looks vert good!! There's some weird letters (as a French guy translating EarthBound) I would have made differently. If you want to contact me, here's my Discord! @cacathoes

@Uberfire F-5 & digitalio-2
I guess I didn't think that through. I know I'm supporting FontStruct and that I can add color to my fonts, but I should ask this question for the site: My fonts are free, but should I make my color font free by putting the files on my website? It's not like I earn money from those clicks, so I feel like this is the only option.

you *could* make your colour font free putting the files on another webpage.

either way the colours disappear in windows 10...

I couldn't get them to show in color on MS Word and the Ness emoticons don't appear in the Character Map, so if anybody can help me, please advise! Thanks!

Just recieved an email from Rob himself:

I don’t have a complete list. I know that Adobe products and Sketch do support Color SVG fonts as well as some but not all browsers.
Unfortunately the SVG format was not widely supported.
We will be adding support for a newer, more widely supported Color font format (COLR) this year.

can you at least put the quotes so it doesn't sound like you are @meek?

Comment by digitalio-2 Sun, 16th june

I have a question: If you are using a program that supports the format FontStruct is using and the color version of the font, If you change the color of the font, will the glyphs that don't have colors other than #000000 have the color you picked, or will they still be #000000?

The only way I can test this is in Photoshop, and unfortunately, the emojis are one flat color, meaning the entire glyph will be completely flat black if the font color is black or completely flat red if it's red.
I don't really have any program to test it in, nor enough resources to test this out. I have a Windows 10 machine and maybe the SVG-type font is not suitable for this OS.

it turns out this font appears on colour in the windows 10 app <<Notepads App>> in Microsoft Store
