Examples of "square" fonts


Question

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

Square is a TTF font intended for roguelike games

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 don’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.
