Donkey Kong font
« on: October 09, 2023, 02:29:54 pm »
I wanted to use the in-game font for my stream and I didn't find anything online with it already composed, so I decided to do it myself. All the character graphics from the game are represented as-is, with some creative liberty to fill out the ASCII set.

I'm not an expert in making fonts and probably did a poor job compared to someone that is, but still, here's my take.

I made a version 2, flipping the left quotation mark (U+2018) upside down, then I noticed the letter “G” had a pixel in it that did not belong. I deleted my v2 post, but hopefully v3 is actually the final work I'll put into this. haha.

Thanks, I appreciate it. I've just pushed a v4 with ¡, ¿, …, ©, ™ characters and a re-centered vertical pipe. The GitHub link will even show a preview among the README.
