A vaguely Courierlike OSD (Onscreen Display) font which tries its best to be casual. The name is inspired by the old computer joke: "Who is General Failure and why is he reading my hard disk?"
No filters or faux-beziers, just stock bricks and a bit of stacking/nudging!
More about the design:
It started as a doodle and an attempt to make a smooth, low-resolution, low-poly font, and then it became a Courierlike. I have other fonts that tried to do polygonal round shapes before this (such as Cartoon Riot) but this design is my first real success in this area.
Initially, I made the angled glyphs before the round ones. I didn't want to change the angled ones, so glyphs like C, O, and Q became a bit wider than they are tall. I'm quite fond of this, because in most designs these glyphs tend to have a tall and narrow character. I think the mildly squat look of this font makes it cuter and gives it more personality.
A lot of glyphs were altered in specific ways to look more like metal type, especially anything with diacritics which touch the letters themselves. Other glyphs were altered specifically to be interpretable at small size. I also use angled contours and actual round bricks alongside each other within the same glyphs, another technique which is geared toward style and interpretability at small size.
This font came with many new challenges and an array of new techniques had to be designed. Loops were an insurmountable challenge because of the low resolution and heavy line weight, so I drew rounded areas to suggest them. You can see it on letters like Greek γ, ζ, and ξ.
A font designed for fast single-line marquee-style display.
This was made according to the speedreading considerations of specific people. So, not everyone will find it as readable as we do.
1.3: Added more symbols.
1.2: Added Dutch and German.
1.1: Q* were corrected.
1.0: Initial release.
Font used for rAIn, shipboard AI of the RGS-1 Rainbow Loop. This will also likely be used in FLAK materials, as well.
A monospaced 3x5 font used in Vidora15 and later programmable electronic displays made by AMFA Cybernetics (formerly "ATMA Robotronics").
This font is made with AMFA encoding in mind. As such, the character set is very limited and there are no glyphs which require NKRO>1 or buckybits (Alt, Ctrl, Fn, Shift, Strg, option keys, etc). The glyphs normally present at these codepoints have been reverted so that any text displayed in this font is also effectively displayed in AMFA encoding. The encoding has 48 possible glyphs (including one which doubles as both "null" and "new line") so there are 96 glyphs in this font overall.
Hope this saves you some work, Feng! :^)
Since this exact font and encoding scheme were used in other devices and software, some of which were (or had) games, I'm also tagging this with Game Recreations.
Original size: 4pt (use multiples of this size for pixel perfection)
