The Font from Outer Spaaaaace !

Yamamushi, lead developer of the ambitious ASCII project, has just released a mind boggling 16 megapixels, 65536 characters unicode font in the wild. That’s more glyphs that you’ll ever need in your entire life of roguelike coder…

You can grab the thing here :

And while your image viewer chokes on it, take a look at The ASCII project.

 

[edit] : you can try this font with the libtcod samples using this command line :

samples_cpp -font font.png -font-nb-char 32 2048 -font-in-row

The subcell rendering doesn’t work though because the standard unicode charset does not contains libtcod’s subcell characters 😉
