I'm developing an application that needs to display ordinary six-sided dice in a three-dimensional view. For technical reasons, implementing the dice graphics as glyphs in a font would be the most practical solution.
I'm currently using Linotype Game Pi as a placeholder in my application, but since I obviously can't distribute that font, I have to replace it with my own before I release the program.
Here's an image that shows what I've done so far:
And here's an image of the equivalent glyph in Linotype Game Pi (lowercase t) :
There is another font called Las Vegas that also contains three-dimensional dice glyphs, but I don't have it at my disposal.
The target platform for my application is low-resolution Windows Mobile devices; typical screen dimensions are 240×320, and high-end screen dimensions are 480×640. The dice occupy only a fraction of the screen, so I need my design to be attractive and legible at very low PPEM values.
I would be grateful for any comments and constructive criticism.
