GM Freak Magazine, issue 1
March 1, 2009
These just keep on coming, don’t they?
“GM Freak” by GMC member Christopher_L (who seems to have joined a day before releasing this magazine). 10 pages of content.
So, what do we have? A title page, featuring white background and a simple logo which shouts out “Office 2007”. Footer reads “GM Freak 2008 ©”. Great effort seems to have been put into proofreading this magazine…
Usual opening words. Bla bla bla.
P.S. I am very sorry about this issue being so small it’s just we don’t have anyone to interview or anyone asking for their games to be reviewed! If you want to be interviewed or want your
game/app reviewed email us at Chris.GMF [at] Gmail [dot] com!!
So, you’re writing the first issue of your brand new Game Maker publication. Nobody knows you’re doing this – so let’s just sit back and relax – somebody will come begging us for an interview and/or review, right?!
Table of Contents. 3 articles… great. 5/6 of this page is blank whitespace.
A review of the GM Obfuscator. So, basically, it obfuscates your code. 1 and a half pages worth of screenshots (not even of the program, but Game Maker, showing meaningless bits of obfuscated GML).
Zodiac Online. Meaningless blabber, screenshot.
Halo 0.5. Side-scrolling Halo fangame review.
This halo [sic] fan game has the following: SMG,Magnum,Battle Rifle,Rocket Launcher,Sniper Rifle,Shotgun,Plasma Pistol,Needler,Brute Plasma Rifle,Covenant Caribine [sic],Fuel Rod Cannon,Beam Rifle,Energy Sword,Brute Shot,Frags,Plasmas,Oversheild [sic], and Invisibility! ALL of them in one GM game.
I’m sure this poorly sorted list was fully necessary.
So, I scroll down, expecting something more – but no. The magazine ends here. It just ends. No closing words, no nothing. And we were just getting started!
