spriggan font


recreation of the pixel font from naxat/compile's seirei senshi spriggan (1991) on the pc engine.

the game includes two sets of numerals - regular and "fancy", with extra detail on the 0, 2, 4 and 5. as the fancy version is used in-game, it's the one that was included in this recreation.

note the addition of the black right-pointing double triangle (U+23E9), black circle (U+25CF), and the stylised A - which doesn't seem to be used in-game, but is likely a remnant/carry-over from compile's aleste (1988) - mapped to greek capital letter alpha (U+0391).

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