No context sudden need to make a tiny game with jumping voxels and desaturated colors. I've no idea what it's about, except I named all assets in #TokiPona, and my mood was involving some kind of lazy melancholia.

I guess it could become a random walk in a quiet forest, with occasional dialogues and chill beats in the background.

Seems like I'm making a custom pixel font for this game. The good thing is #TokiPona uses only 14 letters and capitalizes only names, so it's way faster and easier compared to regular fonts.

I'm trying to give it some kind of natural, script vibe. A bit cryptic, maybe somewhat Elvish. I could have used sitelen pona glyphs, but it would be way too much work for now. I want to have fun making this.

Indeed, your font looks really nice ! Thanks for contributing to the community. How did you manage to create Unicode values for each character ? I mean did you create your font by puting tokipona letters on existing Unicode values like for "a" = "?" ?

@woxok Thanks! Every letter uses the standard Latin values, so it’s only 14 letters, twice, since there are capitalized versions, plus a few punctuation characters.

There’s no Unicode dark magic, because it doesn’t include specific glyphs like sitelen pona. I’d like to, at some point, but it would be a lot more work, and require some advanced ligature settings to replace whole words with single glyphs when they’re detected.

I’m using fontstruct.com, which is great for pixel fonts.

@ice Ok great, thank you ! I'd rather use the combo @inkscape + because my expectations but it is really good to know. Also I'll look into creating ligature and accented glyphs with these tools, so if someone has tips about it 🆘. Maybe someone of the @tokiponaFR community already created one ?

@woxok @inkscape @tokiponaFR Take a look at linja pona and sitelen pona pona:

Their source is available, you can edit them with Fontforge and see how it works.
