…Just kidding, these fonts are free to use in any project / game, go ahead and have fun! 👍
I like these fonts a lot, but I don't know how to get the black outline version... Can someone help me?
That's just an effect, it has to be implemented in your game engine of choice! (or you could add an outline to the png version if you're using Sprite Fonts)
These are awesome!!!
Hello! Thanks for sharing free fonts, they are really nice!
I program with PICO-8 (an emulator for a console that didn’t really exist with retro feeling and restrictions); custom fonts used to be costly (take much of the limited spritesheet + require custom code for drawing) but the latest version adds a simpler, cheaper way to define a custom font to use with the print function and built-in text effects. I ported Expression Pro to that system:
I had to adapt (height and width must be the same for all glyphs, no descenders, etc) and invent some glyphs for special characters (you can see arrow and action buttons for example). Had to sacrifice diacritics, but these could be done by drawing base character + superposition control char + accent or other; I saved thorn, dh and esszet :) I’m not 100% done yet and not satisfied with some of my spacing changes.
Would it be OK if I shared the code for this on the PICO-8 BBS (forum) with credit and link? Other people would be able to use the font and change it. I would also share here the commands that add the font to a PICO-8 game (it’s 3 lines of compressed pixel info, I generated them from sprites using a custom tool).
Absolutely! great job, I should look into adapting fonts to Pico-8 too! :D
Great! This is the code that can be pasted into a cart with PICO-8 2.2.2 to create the font:
Hello, these are great! However I am having issues with all of these in Game Maker - it measures their width incorrectly :( Any idea if there might be something incorrect with the files - I am using the ttfs?
Hi. They should work correctly in GMS, can you tell me more about that "incorrect width"? you can send me a screenshot on email@example.com if you want.
I've been looking everywhere for good bitmap fonts that work well with the program I'm using. Thank you so much for making these.
have my 5*
Haven’t made a game yet, but am very close to finishing. I’ve used this for the title and it looks Devine. Thank you so much for everything you do, since it’s all amazing
I used one on a little game I made so I gave you credit, these and the others in your HF line are very pretty!
I donated $2.00 Thanks for the creation and keep up the good work.
