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 upon 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

expand

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!

Sorry that I missed your request.
I will send you the font from GFX Disk 07 by Detonators very soon.
2020-10-01 18:28:59General discussionZbengI agree that "chrome" could have its own tag.
It is a good Idea, actually, since many fonts evoke this feeling of highly polished metal (like "xenon2". for example, and many more).

On the other hand fonts like "056" (and "cd102menu" that started this discussion) simply transition between colors, in "cd102menu"'s case with a bit of 3D feel.

So what would you say about "083"? It is not exact science, but IMO it can fit to the polished chrome category no problem.
"089" is also a bit confusing, but looks shiny enough.
Sometimes it will be hard to decide, but as long as you find a trait that at least a few fonts share, you can have a category for it. Luckily your design enables each font to have multiple tags, so why not take advantage of it?

If you're concerned about explosion of the number of tags, thus limiting each font to as few as possible, I can relate to that. My preference however would be to be able to filter by any common characteristic that comes into mind. This approach already helped me to quickly locate fonts in the collection using the existing tags and a characteristic I remembered about them. The more tags we define, the more intuitive the filtering will become (IMHO).
2020-10-01 14:02:12General discussionadmin@Zbeng: About the "gradient" tag - Gotta think this over. There's quite a lot of fonts like this, moreover, some have the 'chrome' effect (you know - that 90's look w/ reflection of (typically) blue sky and orange desert. Do you think distinguishing between those and add both "gradient" and "chrome"?

2020-10-01 10:57:40General discussionZbengKeeping you busy... eh?
;-)

You're doing great!
There's no compendium for demo fonts like yours to be found.
2020-10-01 10:55:03 ZbengUnfortunately, not everything in life falls into a category :)
How about starting a fresh category like "Gradient" ?
2020-10-01 10:43:35 admin@Zbeng: I'm torn - would you tag this font "orange", "green" or both or none?
