    Fonts

    I don't really know what this would take, but I would like to make my own font for a game.

    Since I'm not going to learn an API until after my AP test, I'm going to stick with text games. I was thinking, I could make my own font where like, '' could be a small picture of a person, a '^' be a monster etc. I know this sounds stupid but, I think it would add more flavor to my text games and be more impressive, anyone have tips?
    If you ever need a hug, just ask.
