ZX Eurostile

Eurostile ported down to 8x8.

This 2020 BASIN production started as a discussion with Oli Wilkinson who is working on a Red Dwarf based game for the Spectrum. As anyone into fonts who watches Red Dwarf (probably all 4 of us) will know Eurostile is heavily featured throughout the show from signage to branded Jupiter Mining Corporation goods (normally in ALL CAPS).

So of course I had to try Eurostile in 8x8 pixels having not ever tried to interpret somebody elses scalable font into a sans before. Some of the details are lost and it becomes quite generic like all 8x8 sans but here it is.

It’s a very readable font suitable for all sorts of scenarios including text adventures and long winding prose.
