Examples of "square" fonts
I am looking for fonts with "square" letters, by which I mean fonts with both the same width and height. For example: % we have a percentage here. To be square it should be wider, possibly with a "fatter" midline.
There's no official name for this, but there exists several square fonts that you can find in the below links
There's also a font named square which were made for games that are expected to show on a square grid
Roguelike games consist entirely of text in grid cells, but the problem is that most monospaced fonts are a lot higher than they are wide, which means roguelikes either have non-square cells, or they have square cells and the characters donâ€™t take up the entire box, neither of which looks very aesthetically pleasing.
Square has been designed to make characters fill a square space as evenly and uniformly as possible. It is inspired upon the way Japanese characters always evenly fit a box, no matter their design. It foregoes the typical ascenders/descenders in lowercase characters, and instead makes lowercase characters look like a lighter version of uppercase characters.
