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

2020-10-06 19:45:32 ZbengAuthor is Frodo from Alchemy
2020-10-06 17:57:51 ZbengAbout the "time anomaly"... well...
No disrespect here, and I could be wrong, but as far as I understand Gepardstudio is not the creator of the fonts in the studio's gallery, so it may be just the "upload" date or something.

We already established, for example that the following font from "Monster Business" game was drawn by Michael "Micky" Grohe:
yet it appears in their gallery with no credit:

(I think was ripped from Amiga, though...)

etc.. etc..

I'd prefer to update the font description when we discover the original artist(s) of fonts from Gepardstudio gallery.

References (for my argument):

Do you know where you took the source image back in 2005?
This can be investigated a little...
2020-10-06 17:19:09 Zbengwill "Red (Omega)" be an OK tag, then?
This is my compromise...

Actually, come to think of it, isn't this a better tag for authors?
This will differentiate them from other descriptive tags.
Is it possible to "rename" a tag in the database?
For example rename "Krazy Rex" to "Krazy Rex (ST Connexion)" and have it apply to all fonts currently with tag "Krazy Rex"

My little concern for this tag format is for artists that moved between crews. We may have to choose the most representative crew for them.

What do you say?
2020-10-06 17:09:48 adminThat unkown author - (s)he really screwed it.
2020-10-06 15:02:08 admin@Zbeng: Yes, the tags are case-sensitive.
2020-10-06 13:01:42 adminThis font turned out to be accidentally metal.
2020-10-06 13:00:09General discussionadmin2300+ fonts, roughly 1 tag per font, 1/3 of them have external links (though not evenly distributed); every initial character has at least 15 fonts.
