@jackhummer Basically the whole thing is using a custom monospace font. Each character is 8x8 pixels with one foreground and one background colour. You could imagine it's pixelart made from a tileset. I use a program called RexPaint to put it together.

@axoeu Not yet, but I'm working on making some games! I'll be working on a short narrative demo soon after finishing my website, which should be done this week. I'm also providing console artwork for a game called Nauticrawl. That one releases some time in 2019.

So tell me, have you developed any games in this style? Because if you did I would most certainly play them! Bravo on the palette! I adore this
