Well, this is starting to be something.
I've developed a simple bitmap ASCII font in the vein of Fixedsys, in three sizes: 8x16,16x32, and 32x64. At first I thought that a 8x12/16x24/32x48 (that's a 2x3 ratio) would look better, but it gave me issues with lining up the bottom of uppercase and lowercase characters...
Anyways, I've started using the biggest font size, and adding some prettying up to the menu elements:
The smaller the font, the more satisfied I am with it... anyways, this is somewhat promising.
