ZX Minecraft

We built this city on block and roll!

The Minecraft font is quite iconic and fits exactly within an 8x8 despite being proportionally rendered in the game. The high vertical bars on the capitals and the inconsistencies in the lower case give it a somewhat unique flavor that is often reproduced but normally with mistakes.

I created this reproduction in 2019 based on the Java Edition version of the game to ensure maximum consistency with the Sinclair character set including the extended-ASCII codes for the pound and copyright signs.

This reinterpretation works well when you want to push that blocky modern feel but really requires an extra 1 vertical line of space to ensure upper and descenders do not touch. Proportional rendering also finishes the touch.
