SnailFont
« on: July 25, 2018, 04:03:14 pm »

SnailFont is a free and open-source perfectly imperfect font suitable for pixel-based games and applications.


It features somewhat whimsical and tilted letters with very few straight lines or circles.


You can download it and try it out here!


These are the characters I have currently: (there are some tweaks that need to be made, the dots on the colon and the period are too big, the exclamation point is too short, the 'g' looks weird, the 'T' is too tilted, the lower zero on the percent sign is crazy weird, etc. I know it's supposed to be imperfect, but I don't want the imperfections to be distracting.)



This font is incomplete, I plan to tweak some of the existing characters slightly, and expand the current character set quite a bit. If anyone feels like helping, I'm writing some style guidelines for new characters.


The name comes from my other project, Attack of the Snails, which this font was made for :)


Enjoy!

I have completed all of the printable characters in the Basic Latin range todayWell, actually, it was yesterday, but I only updated my webpage for it today. and you can (as always) check it out and download it on the webpage, which contains legacy versions for your enjoyment.

I like the look! It reminds me a little bit of the font they used in EarthBound for the Mr. Saturns. Definitely gonna see if I can find a use for it!

Long time no see! Nice to see you back.
I'm good, myself  ;D

Thanks! I see what you mean (the pixelated, loopy, asymmetric and very non-geometric look), but hopefully mine is more readable :)
