Welcome

This site gathers bitmap/bytemap fonts, saved and extracted mostly from games and demoscene, drawn and pixelated by various graphicians and artists, lost and forgotten in time.

You can find hundreds of those fonts here, either as pictures or, better yet, in a file format that allows basic (macro)typography.

Feel free to browse the list, filtered either by initial letter of the font name (above right) or more specifically (via form above, left).

In closer look

A font is a set of characters. Bitmap is a map of bits (picture). A bitmap font is a set of pictures as its proprietary characters.

We can further distinguish pixelated/image fonts with just two colours (black or white, foreground or background) and fonts drawn with more than one colour. Let's call these bytemap fonts.

The fonts published here are of several origins:

  • pictures gathered by Daniel Guldkrans
  • font art from the archive of Carsten Cumbrowski
  • bytemap fonts of the 8-bit scene – mostly Commodore 64 and ZX Spectrum
  • bytemap fonts of the 16-bit scene – mostly Atari ST and Amiga
  • other fonts from various sources (old demos, intros, etc.) converted by me

Wherever I could get a grip of the name of the author, I mentioned them in the file description. A lot of these fonts are many years old, some even decades. Font that were part of some games are now so called abandonware. I'm going to assume in good faith that all bitmap fonts shown here are freeware.

If you happen to be an author of a certain font presented here that you do not wish to be available, then feel free to contact me and I will make quick amendments to remove it from this website.

Similarly, if you happen to find an error in the description of any font, please, tell me what to fix in the discussion below each font.

Thanks in advance!

What's in it for me?

Let this site be helpful to you if:

  • you are a graphic designer seeking for some cool bitmap fonts
  • you are a programmer and would like to implement the BMF file-format
  • you'd like to have a pic of your text drawn by one of the fonts

Enjoy!

2021-06-15 16:55:25 adminI've finally found one source of this font and added the link to it. The name is apparently some abbreviation of the description - Xenon+Success+Ruling Company, The 01
——— added at 17:06:32:
Also found the "SCS*TRC Intro 01" - https://csdb.dk/release/?id=58183 - but the screenshot doesn't feature the font, so I would link it just here in the comments.
2021-06-07 19:27:50 adminOther letters than those in of the 'Reductio Ad Absurdum' demo screenshots recycled by crs/broncs. A copper orange/brown version is also used that uses letter 'Y' which is different.
2021-06-07 18:47:17 adminCyan/yellow version used in the Intro Compilation #07 by Stranger and Zodiac - https://demozoo.org/productions/95759/
The "Z" in the ZODIAC name is slightly different for the reason I have mentioned before.
2021-06-05 20:13:27 adminThis should be (elder/German) Futhark. Letters C, Q, X (that don't exist in it) are in the newer Futhark. Also, runic numerals are written in a different way than in latin/western form, I'll admit I'm not sure how exactly they work, rn.
2021-06-05 08:39:31 adminFound in The Transbeauce Party Demo 2 - Disk 2 - The Lesser Demos by The Bushwackers - https://demozoo.org/productions/171270/ (link added).
2021-06-04 21:52:33General discussionadminI added two tags recently:
- ?tag=incomplete-alphabet tags fonts with incomplete alphabet, i.e. at least one of the A...Z letters missing.
- ?tag=non-latin tags fonts not having lating letters A...Z (alien languages, runes, international pronouncing letters, etc.)
2021-06-04 14:39:44 adminThe D,I,E H,A,R,D letters from the game's title converted, other letters and characters re-imagined by crs/broncs.
2021-06-03 02:23:09 adminThe first font in the collection to hit 5000 views (and 750 downloads).
2021-06-01 00:12:31General discussionadminIn May 2021, there were 295 fonts added and we had 180k views and 81k downloads (most so far).
