Fonts and Video Games: A Doubly Nerdy Proposition

If I can pride myself on anything, it’s my thorough command of niche trivia, but I got nothing on this one. Please, can someone with a command of both video games and fonts help me out?

Here is some text that may look familiar:


It’s the logo to this blog. I made it a few years back, and I now can’t remember what font I used. I searched the major font sites and found nothing. I’m pretty sure it came from some eight-bit video game, but I can’t tell which and wouldn’t know how start looking. Do you recognize it? Like, not from this blog? Because it would be helpful if you could tell me.

Thanks in advance if you can.

    1. Yeah, I noticed this. I think maybe it's a modified version of that font, but I haven't found it yet.
