This unique 8x8 font has a great text based adventure to show it off!
Mass Driver is the flashy new font foundry that just moved into the neighborhood.
They’ve just launched with a very creative pixel font, titled MD-Eight, the eight namesake is because each character is set within an 8 by 8 grid of pixels.
The font makes great use of negative space, making it impressively legible for a font made out of pixels.
The real treat though is that along with the fonts specimin sheet, there’s a neat text-based adventure game to show it off!
Sure, you could check the PDF specimen for examples of MD Eight in use. Or you could play The Cave of Dolmenlore, a text adventure game set entirely in the typeface.— Mass-Driver™ (@mass_driver_tm) March 9, 2020

The Cave Of Dolmenlore is a great blast from the past, taking you right back to when text-based games ruled supreme and is truly one of the most creative ways I’ve seen a foundry show off their wares.
All of Mass Drivers fonts can be found on their website, they also offer trial fonts for download, so you can give them all a whirl.
As an extra tidbit, Mass Drivers website is built on a system called FontDue, which has been made to get new foundries off the ground with as little work as possible, so people can really focus on the fonts!
