I was looking for a localization friendly pixel font and could not find any that had good coverage and was not outrageously expensive ($700+) for commerical usage. Thats why I created "PixelLocale".
This font is intended to be reminiscent of the original Pokemon Red/Blue games. Too see how they differ check out this image: https://imgur.com/ixoYRtd
It was important to me to create a consistant looking font across scripts.
You can use it however you like, 100% free with no attribution. Lets make the world more accessible.
Latin characters (815/815),
Greek and Coptic (119/119),
Hebrew (86/86) (Fontstruct has poor support form Niqqud and Cantillation)
Bopomofo (37/37) (Need feedback)
I'd love to add more scritps. When I started my goal was to have every glyph supported by Fontstruct, but after learning that support for many asian scripts was limited I halted. If someone can shed some light on these limitations and how severe they are and for what scripts they apply, please let me know. I can be reached at "johste[at]chumpware[dot]com".
Font from the ingame marquee display of Barcade Brawl, a 2015 game by yours truly. This was made to look similar to the system fonts from old arcade boards, PC microsystems, etc. You've probably seen the fonts I'm talking about; they're everywhere and many people refer to them singularly as "the arcade font" or "the NES font".
This is 7x7 with no wasted matrix, but it looks better without monospacing since not every glyph is the same width. It also makes a decent terminal & chat font, at least for those who don't care about the case of the messages they read and write.
Feel free to use this in your games, etc.!
Original size: 5.25pt (use multiples of this size for pixel perfection)
