Subscribers are starting to get hold of issue #86 of RetroGamer as I write this. This month features my six page article on 3D arcade adventure games. The article has an emphasis on early pioneers in open world gaming.
I managed to cover one of my favourite genres and talk to some of the desingers. The games mentioned include Cholo, Damocles, Midwinter, Hunter, Cybercon III and loads of other utter classics. I just hope that the readers enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed creating it.
There is a feedback thread for the issue here.
I don’t have my copy yet, but you can watch Darren flicking through the issue on his YouTube channel. Incidentally, the issue itself looks absolutely amazing this month. It has a strong home computer and 3D bias, for one thing.
Thanks to Ricardo Pinto (Cybercon III), Paul Holmes (Hunter), Joey Headen (Cholo), Ovine by Design and Adrian Simpson for all of their help.
As ever, I had to be brutal with the cuts, but expect the interview that I did with Ovine, the team that created the Cholo remake, to surface at some point.
35 yesterday. Hopefully, there should be some big news coming from me in the next few months.
I intend to get back to writing for magazines in a big way this year, although, the Linux Journal website articles are still going strong (see sidebar). Maybe, I’ll get the gender politics book finished this year? Hopefully, I’ll soon be making an announcement about some more published material in that field.
Take care, all.
