super bug / fire truck (expanded) font


recreation of the large pixel font from atari's super bug (1977) and fire truck (aka smokey joe, 1978).

in the games, the font is incomplete. both lack a Q, V and W, which I made from scratch for this recreation, trying to approximate the overall style/feel. the J is present in super bug, but not fire truck. conversely, the K is present in fire truck only.

with the exception of the added letters, only the characters present in the games' tilesets have been included.
