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

Daniel Guldkrans suggests the author of this font is Xerud. Is that so?
2021-03-05 05:18:34 adminThe font from the YO DEMO screenshot is much darker.

2021-03-03 17:28:26 adminCharacters not in screenshot recycled by crs/broncs.
2021-03-03 02:11:54General discussionadminA added some more fonts and links from yet another page I found on internet having one of those rare lists of nice colorful pixelated charset images.
3267 fonts at this very moment, at least 30 per letter, 7300 tags and 700 artist credited. And the website just passed 990K views. I added the views counter at the bottom of the main page.
2021-03-03 00:28:55 adminI think I've found the prod on DZ and linked it here. If the font is Elitendo's then the graphician who did it is probably Lowlife.

2021-02-28 17:14:18 admin@Zbeng: mercs-cracktro deleted. Never mind. Looking at this, I spotted some mistakes in this font (reversed "<" & ">", flipped ";"…), so it prompted me fix it.
2021-02-28 09:23:54 Zbengmercs-cracktro was correctly identified as a duplicate of this font (even with the numerals and a few more characters missing).
When I found it in the ATARI's memory after running, it looked familiar, but I forgot where from.
