A pixel-city. That means it is a pixelated city. A city that is made of pixels. PIXELS, not bricks. The letters are as follows: A--Capitol building B--Plain building C--Building cluster 1 D--Factory E--Building cluster 2 F--Building cluster 3 G--Twin buildings H--Building cluster 4 I--Bridge J--Skyscraper #1 K--Central Park L--Huge Building M--Double Skyscrapers N--Plain building #2 O--Plain Building #3 P--Airport Q--Skyscraper R--Burned-down building S--Burned-down building 2 T--Space Needle (creds to my friend) Space--Road I'll probably add more buildings. Maybe another factory... I dunno.

Bridge comin' right up, sir!

A church! A house!

I'll make a church! I'll make a house!
Comment by Logan Thomason (xenophilius) 16th april 2011
love the bridge. ...how about a subway/train?
Comment by funk_king 16th april 2011
Without doubt, this can become a Megalopolis... Even fits the style of "Metropolis" by F. Lang!
Comment by elmoyenique 17th april 2011
so far, i like this a lot!
Comment by kix 19th april 2011
Thanks, fk! Thanks, elmo! Thanks, kix!
PS, "So far" is right... I'm planning on making tons more buildings.
Comment by Logan Thomason (xenophilius) 20th april 2011
To get the city, just mash random keys.
Comment by Logan Thomason (xenophilius) 20th april 2011
That looks great! :) Maybe add some clouds and airplanes too?
Comment by Pooja Saxena (anexasajoop) 21st april 2011
@anexa: I would add a cloud, but the tree turned out absolutely horrible, and I'd rather not toy with anymore organic shapes. As for the planes, I'd rather have everything on the ground... It just makes more sense. I'll add an airport, though, if it makes you happy!

BTW, the sample above is not my official sample image... I need a better sample, and I have added more buildings. I'll get to work on the sample.

I revised the height of the letters... it was originally more than 48 bricks. Now it's eligible for the competition!

Congratulations to the prestigious 3rd place.
Comment by Frodo7 13th may 2011
Congrats for your Third Prize and your gorgeous great entry from the bottom of my heart!! At the end, I was right (It comes to be a Megalopolis!).
Comment by elmoyenique 13th may 2011
OMG! I won THIRD PLACE!! This is EPIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can't type enough exclamation points!! THANK YOU SO MUCH, EVERYBODY!!!
Comment by Logan Thomason (xenophilius) 13th may 2011
All of the entries were close, but I really think you worked hard and this deserves the third place. Or more ;)
I like the "K"

One thing im mad about. When I type my city name, it doesnt look a thing like it. Ha, well congratulations :)

how do you do it lol you need to learn me
Comment by mawgen blu 19th july 2011
@Netbook: Thanks! Glad you like it.

@Dreamweaver: The only letters are A-T and Space; no lowercase and only limited capitals. If you use a letter not included in the font, it will automatically revert back to the default typeface, be it Times New Roman or Arial or Calibri. As far as I am aware, this only happens on Microsoft Word--I assume that is what you used?

@mawgen: Well, thank you. I find that the best way to make fonts (that is, good fonts, or in my case, borderline good) is to make a bunch of simple fonts in as many styles as you can, just to get started, and when you are confident enough, go on and try more complicated fonts. There are some amazing things here on FontStruct--I recommend you clone some of them and check them out for inspiration.

I luv it........how can I use it 4 a game I play called racing live? The world should love it as much as I do!!!
Comment by cowboyzz 31st august 2011
I'm not sure what you mean. Can you be more specific?

By the way, if you want to use it, go ahead. I only make fonts for fun, not for money, so if someone wants to use it on a poster or a game, they can. If I receive credit for the font, though, I won't go after your soul.

AWEsome! How about a space shuttle or a Saturn V?

it's awesome
Comment by FLarEON33 21st february 2014
The font is pretty neat, how you can type a city and all, but there seems to be gaps forming on the right side of any Space Needles I make.
Comment by Skelepound 7th september 2015

These are awesome! Looks more like a 2D city. 10/10

Comment by Sagan (Spaceman032) 19th october 2016

There appears to be a tiny space after the letter "T"

Comment by DogDotDog 10th december 2016

i loved it, don't stop making fonts Logan

Comment by Emanuel Messias (MiniDarkOF) 25th july 2018

this isnt even a font XD

Comment by gameplay89065 2nd april 2019

gameplay, you have a very dim view of what a font is.  I suggest you look it up.  It very much IS a font.

Comment by SymbioticDesign 4th april 2019

@ gameplay89065 One can write unlimited tales with it, do you not understand that? Would you  use a different type of system with equal globally familiar presentation to convey creative exciting kind ideas?
