Google has a TrueType font based on 1980s Namco: https://www.google.com/fonts/specimen/Press+Start+2P

Joystix is the font I know about, but I don't think it's Truetype? (It is, AFAICT, ripped from Zelda 2.)

"Press Start 2P is a bitmap font based on the font design from 1980s Namco arcade games"
This obviously won't work either...

EDIT: Joystix font worked, thanks!

Except that it's actually not a bitmap font: "the specific glyph forms in this TrueType conversion"
