ODN Bacterion Alpha

ODN Bacterion Alpha

One of the first fonts I started working on. It was inspired by the bitmap font used in Gradius III.

 

ODN Bacterion Beta

ODN Bacterion Beta

Similar to Bacterion Alpha ODN, this is also a Gradius font. This one comes from the PlayStation 2 version Gradius IV, which used a smooth version of the bitmap from Gradius III in the menu screen. Note: The original arcade version used a bitmap similar to the first 2 Gradius games.

 

ODN Bacterion Gamma

This came as an idea while going Bacterion Beta ODN. It’s not based on any of the Gradius games, but the lettering is heavily inspired by them.

 

ODN Bacterion Delta

(No preview image yet, I haven’t completed enough of the lettering)

Bacterion Delta ODN has similar roots to Beta. This one is based on the bitmap lettering from the first two Gradius games but smoothed out.

 

ODN Bacterion Epsilon

(No preview image yet, I haven’t even STARTED this one)

I haven’t decided what this one will end up being based on. I’m leaning toward doing a bitmap version of the Bacterion Delta ODN font. The other idea is to do something with the lettering in Gradius IV, which is a cross between the first 2 games with some stylization from Gradius III.

 

ODN Nintendoized Advance

A lot of the GameBoy Advance remakes of NES games used a squashed version of the lettering from their original games. I’m guessing it was due to the different resolution of the GBA screen. This font in particular got its start after playing ‘The Legend of Zelda’ on the GBA.

 

ODN Nintendoized Classic

It’s the font used on the Nintendo Entertainment System and the packaging of it’s peripherals. Not much else to say other than, “Now You’re Playing With Power!”

 

ODN Paisano

ODN Paisano

Mostly based on the logo of ‘New Super Mario Bros. Wii’ (specifically the Mario Bros. part…the Super is a different style), which its self is based on the title screen font from the original Super Mario Bros. I do plan to do a separate version called Paisano Alt ODN to cover the different lettering the ‘Super’ part of the logos use.

I’ve already shown this one off, but a little information on it. Ever take a REALLY good look at the Super Nintendo logo? You might notice none of the lettering is consistently drawn. Different angles, different inside radii, different outside radii, it’s really a mess design wise. To get the best quality I could, I used the lettering on various SNES product boxes. It got me most of the letters I needed and a decent angle for them overall. It also appears that someone at Nintendo noticed as well and updated the logo to be more consistent.
