Hi people! this gonna be my first gbjam , and I was wondering, what font do you use ? I just found early gameboy font : http://www.dafont.com/es/early-gameboy.font .


If you have time/interest you could make one with http://www.pentacom.jp/pentacom/bitfontmaker2/ or there are a ton available here http://www.pentacom.jp/pentacom/bitfontmaker2/gallery/ not sure what the "use policy" is on those though.


nice!! thanks! I would take a look at this!

All jams I followed or participated in so far had fonts as one of the exceptions for the "everything has to be done within the timeframe" section of the rules. It would be ridiculous, especially considering some toolsets or libraries have them built in already and these are allowed to be used as well. So don't worry, just look for one you like and use it (of course following its licensing terms). I don't think anyone here minds. :)

Some freebies here that might be suitable.


I saw this font on the main page the other day, reminds me of FF1. If I end up with text I'm going to try and use it!


If anyone is desperate for a super low-res font that is damn near unreadable, I made this 3x3 spritefont for a lowrezjam a couple years back that might be of use if you modify the colors.

Uni5 , Volter and ArmaFive looks good in my project after fighting a bit in Unity for show them not blurry xD

All avaliable in DaFont
