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!

2022-11-20 15:43:17General discussionJoe StroutI think Oliver makes good points. I also think it'd be great to be able to filter by number of characters in the font. Say I put in 64, it should show only fonts with 64 characters or more. Right now there's no good way to find more complete fonts.
2022-11-20 12:01:15 OliverI am in the middle of trying to understand the bmf format. "goth16" is somehow my test font at the moment. I don't understand two things here:
1. goth16 is marked as monospaced and indeed the shift value is 16 for each char. This doesn't make sense. I mean it doesn't make sense that the font itself is marked as monospaced or did I miss something here?
2. The baseline seems to be shiftet by 2 pixel. I mean the problem here is, that the uppercase A has a descent of 2 pixel (compare with uppercase C). Should the sizeOver value be -14 and the sizeUnder 2 instead?
2022-11-20 09:27:03General discussionOliverThanks for all the effort here. Great work.
While looking around here and exploring all the nice fonts I also was thinking about some improvements:
1. Seeing the full charset requires two clicks. What about removing the full charset expander and just keep the "load" button?
2. A filter for single and multi color fonts would be great
3. A filter for fonts with and without lower case chars would be also nice.
Thanks again.

2022-10-31 16:43:49 adminThe "3" character was flimpsily hand-drawn in the original set; I took a liberty to make it in the original style.

2022-10-11 16:18:12General discussionadminI've found three Font Collections by Exile and will be adding font converted from pictures in those collections.
Unless there's any note in the picture, there's no telling about the name of the font or its author, so I guess I will have to set some name and maybe later, upon knowing more, renaming each.

2022-09-15 00:59:13General discussionJoe StroutI'm working on a GUI font editor for the BMF format (versions 1.1 and 1.2). This will be free and open-source. I have a decent start on it, but I am always short on time, so I'm trying a bounty system (bountysource.com) to recruit some help.

If you think a graphical BMF font editor would be useful, please consider chipping in a few bucks to the first bounty task:
https://app.bountysource.com/issues/111282532-feature-add-glyph-selection-to-fontedit

Or, if you want to learn MiniScript and Mini Micro (these are easy and fun!), you could tackle the task yourself and collect the reward!
