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).
