unicode sprite sheets with photoshop
My current project uses text glyphs as graphics for the game world, an approach that works very well for small numbers of glyphs and for text-based consoles. I'm using neither, though. I need a lot of glyphs, eventually 2,000 or more, and am developing in Unity3D. Unity's text-drawing capabilities could probably be coerced into something like a textual console, but generating the needed glyphs is simple with Photoshop.
