Dissatisfied with the usual font styles available, I thought I would try to create something more suitable for grayscale RPGs. I tried to be as close to the detail found in classic Final Fantasy games as possible. Menu borders and a finger-pointer are also included.

In order, the characters are:

ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUV
WXYZ

abcdefghijklmnopqrstuv
wxyz . {il} {li} {ll} {multiplier} , " {."} ' ! ? % {..} -{-} / ( ) ;

1234567890

In the fourth row, there are quite a few special characters. There are a few lower-case letter combinations so you can make sections of dialog reserve less character space, and appear more variable-width. There's also a period-quotation combo, for shorter punctuation at the end of sentences contained in quotations. Finally, there are characters to make ellipses and em-dashes short.

Feel free to use, modify or redistribute as you see fit.

Darn, pretty sweet! Those would fit pretty well in a calc game. They're easy to read too it seems.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Pretty nice. I like the extra symbols that help with spacing.

Good detail for the pointer considering it's size too. :)
I do sprites and stuff, so yeah.

I have made a slightly modified version of the above for people who wants FF fonts and windows that are darker. I had to change the borders a lot, though.

The darker version looks nice. I didn't think to make one like that.

Thanks ^^

I wanted to have something closer to the FF1 through FF4 :D
