Presenting: GameFontMaker for OS X


I just wanted to let you all know that I've created a little native Cocoa tool for generating bitmap fonts for iOS games. Unless things have changed dramatically, I think the only other decent tool for this is Windows only, so hopefully someone finds it useful. Even if you don't (you jerk), it's light-years ahead of my old font generation method which involved printing out each character and then faxing it back to my computer to digitize it*.

EDIT: Permanent page for GamefontMaker

It is free to use for whatever purpose you like, however if you do find it useful you could always have a look at my games or follow me on Twitter or something

* - okay, this is a terrible lie, but it was very nearly almost as bad.
