Time for action – creating a bitmap font using Glyph Designer

First of all, we will need to download and install Glyph Designer. Go to http://71squared.com/glyphdesigner to download and install the Glyph Designer application.

We're going to create three different fonts:

  • A font for the "You win!" label that will appear when you win the game
  • A font for the "You lose!" label that will appear when you lose the game
  • A font for points that will float out of the bird when we hit it with the arrow

Let's start with the font for the "You win!" label:

  1. Open the Glyph Designer application and save the empty project anywhere you like. Name the project WinFont.GlyphDesigner.
  2. Select the Chalkduster font from the list of fonts on the left.
