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!

2020-10-26 23:28:53 ZbengAfter more investigation, probably the font did not have to be ripped... Mic from Agony (Amiga team) was a member of Equinox (Atari ST). He probably helped Angels (Amiga) by providing an Amiga font version to The Lightwave Demo (1990). But "The Compil III intro by Equinox" was released already in 1989 with this font.

2020-10-26 17:58:07 ZbengSorry, I missed your exact same comment below... oops
I will try to rip the original from there..
2020-10-26 17:54:42 ZbengI re-ripped the "Fun Vision Fucktro" just to find the credits, but they were not there. :-(
This is the only relevant info I could find in the scroll text (which I added in demozoo):
"HELLO TO ALEX THANX A LOT FOR THE FONT AND ALL THE GRAFIX"
and
"FONT RIPPED BY THE TWILIGHT ZONE ON AMIGA m HELLO BEAT MANIAC"
I will send again the font as I ripped it. It has 13 colors originally.
2020-10-26 17:42:16 ZbengThis font with another palette in "Arakis compile 41" menu:

2020-10-26 14:50:00 adminAppears in Fun Vision Fucktro by Funvision - https://demozoo.org/productions/69950/
2020-10-26 14:47:23 adminFound similar (but not the same) font in Meeting Intro by Amaze and Genocide - https://demozoo.org/productions/207486/
2020-10-26 14:45:26 adminI took time to find the description to responding GIF (to refill the font's title) and it says the same.
Though, the font there is black with green/cyan borders (?)
2020-10-26 09:39:39General discussionadmin"Project tagging" under way: 3002 tags total, that's average of 1.23 per font, 1781 general tags assigned (like colour, etc.), 896 external links, 325 authors/artists. There are still 1703 fonts without external links and 606 fonts without any tags.
P.S. Recently I added the "game" tag (assigning fonts from games, any platform). If anyone finds game fonts I missed, don't hesitate to suggest it.
2020-10-25 17:02:55 adminThis font appears for just a second in the intro of the game.
Characters besides those in the title recycled by crs/broncs.
