Welcome

This site gathers bitmap/bytemap fonts, saved and extracted mostly from games and demoscene, drawn and pixelated by various graphicians and authors, forgotten somewhere in the 1980s, 90s and 2000s.

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

What is a bitmap font?

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 bitmap fonts published here are of two origins:

  • Pictures of fonts gathered by Daniel Guldkrans
  • Font 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, please, feel free to contact me and I will make quick amendments.

What's in it for me?

Let this site be helpful to you if:

  • you are a designer and seeking for some cool bitmap fonts
  • you are a programmer and would like to implement the BMF file-format

Lucky hunt!
