The ubiquitous video game font standard, likely designed by Lyle Rains of Atari; first used in 1976's "Sprint 2" by Atari, and then on until well into the 1990s. Used by most video arcade game companies, including (but not limited to): Namco, Williams Electronics, Irem, Atari, Konami, Bally-Midway, Taito, Nintendo and Sega. The lower case characters are from several Atari video arcade games from 1984-1987. Plenty of alternate characters -- variations used in conjunction with the standard font, all selected from a variety of MAME32 game roms.

Added a new alternate "W" and a new alternate "Y", after a WHOLE lot of character shifting to make room. :^P

If you want to create a retro arcade game, then this is the font for you.
