Nicer Nightie is a follow up on Nice Nightie featuring more appropriate fraktur-style uppercase letters.

Just like Nice Nightie, Nicer Nightie provides a full Latin-1 character set, plus extra characters usable straight from the sprite sheet. It's also based on a better grid for pixel-art games, at 24x16 it uses multiples of 8x8 for easier tiling.

Just like Nice Nightie, Nicer Nightie is free for free projects; if you want to use it for paid projects you'll have to pay the recommended price.

This font is absolutely great! How did you make it, and do you have any recommendations for resources to learn how to design fonts?


Thank you very much! I just had an idea re: the base shape of the i and built upon it to make the n, the u, and from those I built up the rest.

I don't really have any pointers, tbh, I just stumbled my way into a cool idea, lol, however Reddit's /r/typedesign was a huge help.

Oh, also, I built the glyphs in Aseprite and made the TTF with FontForge

Awesome, thanks for the help!


I've been learning how to use FontForge and wow is it a lot of work! Thank you for the tip though, it's certainly interesting learning how to make a font


Cool, I didn't notice this one when I was looking at "Nice Nightie"! I think I may have seen it, but then thought it was a duplicate or something, the names are awfully similar!! I think this one is a definite improvement though, some of the capital letters in the original were rather strange to me.

Indeed they were; but expecting this very case I worded the "license" (as such) that way, so you can feel free to use either as you please :)

By the way, I ended up using this font in my game Vacant Kingdom, just thought you might want to know! I use it for Location and Boss titles: https://i.imgur.com/EAEHW91.png

Woah, awesome! It looks great!

Sorry for just replying now, I've been away :)

Really nice font!

Thank you! :)
