steel empire font


recreation of the regular pixel font from hot・b/flying edge's steel empire (1992) on the sega mega drive/genesis.

this font is used for intro animation, and on the end-of-level stats screen. the game also includes a custom compound character for 's (apostrophe followed by an s) - this has not been recreated here as it lacks an appropriate unicode code point.

only the characters present in the game's tile set have been included.
