Matoran Alphabet Unicode Encoding

Recommended Posts



For the past few days, I've been working on encoding the Matoran alphabet into the Unicode Private use area. I've encoded letters "A" through "Z", as well as two versions of "Å", the letters "Ä", "Æ", "Ö", and "Ø". I've also encoded numbers "0" through "9" and a Period, Hyphen, and Three Virtues Symbol.


Below are all of the encoded characters, they will appear as boxes until you installed the font.

The files include 3 keyboard layouts in a .bundle file and a font, called Matoran Elliptical with 3 weights: Regular, Light, & Bold, as well as oblique (italic) and a style in which the characters are tilted to the left, called tilt. You can see a type specimen here.


The file contains instructions for macOS, I have no idea if a .bundle file will work on Windows and, furthermore, no method of making a Windows keyboard layout as all I have is a Mac, sorry Windows users!


The files for macOS can be downloaded here.

Just the font and .bundle keyboard layout can be downloaded here.


To see the characters on your browser you need to change your browser's default font to the one included with the above file.


If you want to make a font that subscribes to this encoding you can find an encoding chart in the macOS files under 'reference'. If you do make such a font then post it in the comments and I'll add it to this post.


Also, if anyone makes a keyboard layout for Windows then post a link, I'll add it to the post. 


Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoy this encoding of the Matoran alphabet! :D
