In my Empire game tutorials, I've now added True Type font support by using SDL_ttf. This tutorial explains how to add it in then use it. I've created a plug in replacement ttf_print() for the existing bitmap based print() function.

I also fixed the release version and that's in the binaries zip file provided with the downloads for that tutorial. If you unzip those files into a folder, the Empire.exe should run. It's now a whopping 17KB in size!
