8-bit rendition of "Broderbund Software" ripped by http://kofler.at - represents the logo text but not sure what game it's from. Made this proportional and created some punctuation glyphs to fill it out. No descenders in the style of the original.

Font from German Commodore 64 game "Hotel" by Ariolasoft. Not much but I wanted to do another Fontstruction, been too long
Font used in 10th Frame (and the Leaderboard Golf series) for the Commodore 64 by Access Software. I used 10th Frame's smaller lettering for lower case, and the box score numbers for an alternate set of digits (use Shift 1-8, [ and ] for these). The letters used shading (grey pixels next to the black ones) so I've tried to mock that.
Stern from GEOS FontPack PLUS on the Commodore 64. Script font with joins. I haven't done more than basic kerning on this so it may be a bit "rough" in places. Still, it's the full basic ASCII set, and it's easier to read than Mistral.
Inspired by a post on Margaret Shepherd's blog. "Stiffen" is the name she gave it, and it's built with a 30-degree tilt on the pen.
"This completely rectilinear alphabet conveys a strong, heavy, almost machine-made effect."
No caps but I can't see why I couldn't add caps later.
Building on the work done by Nazlfrag to design "Nerug" (https://fontstruct.com/fontstructions/show/347722/nerug), I spent some time working on capitals and symbols. Tried to blend angles and curves. It isn't perfect but it's fun. :) Looking at the characters, I should clone this to make a version with regular-size numerals.
As per Nazlfrag's 2010 original, this is the font seen in ABC Australia's Gruen Transfer, Gruen Nation, Gruen Planet, and its most recent incarnation, Gruen. This font is simply called "Gruen" to match.This is a clone of nerug
Bancroft, from GEOS Font Pack PLUS by Berkeley Softworks, for the Commodore 64. Only the original's character set, which is missing a LOT. Arial Black could learn a lot from this one, lol.
Boalt from GEOS FontPack 1 on the Commodore 64.
Apparently Boalt was so popular that it was included in FontPack PLUS too. Personally, I didn't care much for Boalt. It's heavy, wide, big serifs - not my kind of thing. But without much else to create, and wanting to keep in the Fontstruct game, here it is. Rescuing these fonts from obscurity is the main prize!
Unkerned, and no extra characters other than what the original had.
Flints is a font from GEOS FontPack PLUS on the Commodore 64.
Odd backward-leaning characters. Kerning not quite right in places, any suggestions welcome. I deliberate made the spacing 1 pixel looser than default, to try and match the original's feel.
Well, it's been a while, work has ramped up during this school term. I never complain about that though. I'd rather be busy with work I'm comfortable doing. But I digress.
This font is Spruce, as seen in GEOS FontPack PLUS on the Commodore 64. Not sure whether you'd call this stencilled or segmented. It's got an odd set of descenders, and I've corrected some glyps so they're symmetrical top and bottom, even if that gives them ascenders. This may not spruce up your font collection as such (groan)...
Lewis from GEOS FontPack PLUS for the Commodore 64.
Another Old West font... normally I don't care much for them, I never warmed to Playbill. Lewis feels like it's got a bit more space - almost a cross between Playbill and Italian Print.
University font from GEOS for the Commodore 64. This was one of the default fonts included with GEOS and GeoWrite. I think it's based on one of Susan Kare's Mac fonts, can't remember which one. Elegant and may even work its way back into regular use for me...
Another Commodore 64 game font - Alternate Reality. I've never played it but it looks interesting... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alternate_Reality_(series)
Character set from Frak! for the Commodore 64. Just the characters from the game ROM (scores, high score table etc.). Nothing special, just a bold monospaced font.
Orient, from The Print Shop Companion for the Commodore 64 by Broderbund Software.
I never got to use Orient - my copy of PS Companion had two bad files, the fonts Orient and Deco (which were my two favourites from the samples in the manual! Go figure). Whilst many Asian-style fonts exist, they weren't as wide as this one. Orient is much more... inelegant.
Characters are all that were in Print Shop... if anything I should fix the pairs kerning.
Spats, based on the original from GEOS FontPack PLUS on Commodore 64 by Berkeley Softworks.
This one took me a lot longer than usual. Rather than just a straight pixel rendering, I used Fontstruct's diagonal blocks to make smoother glyphs. What we have is a balance between the original's square letterforms and a modern take on the diagonal stripes.
The glyphs included are only what was in the original. If it proves popular enough I'll do some more glyphs.
Parallax by Ocean Software for the Commodore 64. A quickie font that leans to the left.
Channing from GEOS Font Pack 1 by Berkeley Softworks.
There are similar fonts around like Premi or Andes, but I've always preferred this one. This was a morning quickie job.
Typewriter from Print Shop by Broderbund Software. Despite it's name, it's a proportional font not monospaced.
Block font from The Print Shop by Broderbund Software.
Using VICE, I used Print Shop's Screen Magic option with every character in the set to generate a screen dump. I like Block because it's got the Western feel but isn't as condensed as Playbill.
Bubble - from FontPack 1 (and re-released in FontPack PLUS) for GEOS on the Commodore 64. Basic 1980s outline font. I'm hoping to remake as many GEOS fonts as I can that aren't readily-available typefaces.
Wizball font, Commodore 64 version. No extras, just what the character set has - lower case only. Am going to combine this with a set of capitals to make something more interesting.
I am proud to present FontKnox, one of the more popular fonts in GEOS on the Commodore 64. I took a bit longer with this one but it was well worth it. The font is meant to look kind of embossed and metallic, hence its original name.
As it's decorative, I've included only its original characters; I've used the bottom of the semicolon to make quotation marks.
This is some random set labelled "BX_1" from Peter Kofler's web site. I don't know what game or software it's from. I just remember I made a bitmap font of this years ago with "Fony". Now it's a TrueType. Do with it as you will :)
