Bubblegum

I designed this font in 2005 for the BASIN programming environment as a fun, bubbly font, much like the letters that adorned schoolbooks and pencil cases (and, occasionally, desks) in my youth.

Two variants are included: the thicker, square outline as well as a softer, rounded experience.

Both work well for titles when the outline color is darker than the background color.

Beachball

I created this font in 2018 as a bubbly, fun font that somehow reminded me of playing on the beach with friends. A short version was added in 2020 that keeps much of the original feel while dealing with descenders and vertical spacing a bit better.

It is mostly sans-serif with some subtle exceptions and chunky lower terminals and lower arms, giving it a new refreshing feel for an 8x8. A proportional renderer and an extra pixel of vertical whitespace would make it shine.

This font works very well on title screens and could even work in a text adventure with that custom font rendering.

Can be seen in Crap Dice 3, Roque y sus Bloques and Northpole.
