PyHiero Screenshot

PyHiero is a pure python bitmap font engine that can parse bitmap font files as generated by Hiero from the SlicK game engine.

Although library-independent, it includes a rendering engine for pygame that is compatible with its pygame.font.Font class in that it can be used in advanced text rendering libraries such as Glyph for extra awesomeness.


  • Python (tested with 2.7, should also work with 3.x)
  • pygame (only if you want to use the PyGameHieroFont class)
