3. A>bout the font

Werdna's Return is a 1:1, 1px spaced, mostly faithful recreation of the font used

in Sir-Tech's Wizardry series, specifically the one used in the series' japanese

releases (such as "Wizardry I-II-III: The Story of Llylgamyn", and "Wizardry

Gaiden IV: Throb of the Demon's Heart") during the late 90's. This is different

from the original computer versions, which used the Apple ][ system font.

Note that I say "mostly faithful" as I did not recreate the japanese characters

found in the games.

Unlike other videogame series, such as The Legend of Zelda, Metal Gear Solid or

Donkey Kong, the Wizardry series has seen little to no widespread use, or indeed

demand, for its font, and as such has remained as obscure as it Japanese releases.

Yet, it remains a concise, even sophisticated font of the 16-bit Super Nintendo

game catalogue, and is now available.

It was (re)created using actual, 1:1 snapshot of the afforementioned games as

source material, and BitFontMaker2, a free, web-based pixel font creator over the

course of one day. The site is available at:

The font's name is based on the fourth title in the series, the eponymous Werdna's Return, itself a play on one of the author's names (Andrew).
