Retro Gaming Magazine #2 Preview and Cover Reveal

issue 2cover_03 preview

We have had to hold back releasing the cover of our second issue as we worked with the artist to get it just right (great art doesn’t just happen). With our second issue we will continue our efforts to feature content that other publications avoid. As usual, this issue will be 40 pages and is available for pre-order right now.

The cover of the second issue features an artistic take on Snatcher featuring Gillian Seed on the front and Random Hajile commandeering the back cover. We have chosen this piece based on the content of this issue that features Metal Gear 1 + 2, Snatcher and Policenauts in articles.

This issue also continues our ‘themes’ format with fan translations and digital comics carrying the bulk of the issue. These two genres go hand in hand as most of the digital comics available are fan translations. We feel this is in part due to Snatcher’s lackluster sales on the niche Sega CD. Had Konami released Snatcher on a more widespread scale it surely would have done better.

Exclusive interview with Artemio Urbina of JunkerHQ and the Policenauts Translation Project.

We will also be taking a look at the Sharp X68000, a Japan only gaming computer that would have surely rocked had it been released in North America. There were a lot of great ports from the time (late 80′s to the mid 90′s) for this computer and we will show off the best.

Debuting this issue will be some new indie Apple II games, an actual content page (due to popular demand) and more content to be revealed as we near release.

Pre-order your copy of Retro Gaming Magazine today and ensure you receive the print with wrap around cover.
