akumajō special: boku dracula-kun font


recreation of the primary pixel font from konami's akumajō special: boku dracula-kun (1990) on the nintendo famicom. it includes an almost complete set of hiragana and katakana characters.

note that in the game, the dakuten and handakuten are rendered as a character on the preceding line, while this recreation includes characters with these diacritics in the correct position in the correct character codepoints themselves - for this reason, the characters themselves are taller than 8 pixels.

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