Inspired by FraGMarE and helped along by some of Matriax's tips for making fonts, here's @NGUL0US, a font.

It's meant to be reminiscent of a font from an arcade game or something. Each character was originally 8x8 max. I think the overlaying system I used to create the color variants could be emulated somehow, so...

Also the overlaid versions look awful on a light-colored background, hence the dark boxes.

oh right the green palette was based off of one on colourlovers (, see if you can find it! (i'm not sure if i'm supposed to just link back to the main page or to the user's page or what under their creative commons license)

Best viewed at 2x or higher. So nuts to you FF3 users.

Made the entire background the dark color because I think it looks cooler, also updated the preview to be cooler and include the scrapped "fire chrome" color variation.

Very nice font design. The shapes of the letters are superb.

Nice work.  Find the sentences a bit hard to read at regular desktop resolution but at a more game-like 320x240 it seems a lot better and reminds me of the Amiga era which is always good for me.  Far prefer the red/yellow version than the greenish one which looks a bit muddy.

Holy crud you people are crazy! Now I want to use this font.

I love this font!  It reminds me a lot of the some of the old fonts in a lot of Sega Genesis/MegaDrive games from circa 1993.  Especially the set with the fire red color scheme.  Very well done, orb!
