Formerly known as “Prodigy Game Magazine“, Nathan Hurde has released a new issue of his magazine (direct pdf link). Last released in June, a new issue (issue 5) was finally released here at the end of October. The new title of the magazine is now “Tailware Times”. The magazine opened with a note from Nathan Hurde which included the reasoning for the new name:
“Instead we will use our new name “TAILWARE”. You all know
that life would be so much easier with a tail, so you gave you one. Tailware will of
course feature the content of its predecessor, ProdigyGM, however.”
The magazines layout has seemed to downgrade from the previous issue, with issue 5 reverting back to a simpler black and white style. The content was written in a similar style to previous versions of the magazine which involved some rather bland writing that sometimes appeared to be opinionated:
“This game is waaay better
than Realm One Online, Whispered Scroll Online, Goomba
Online, and Realm One Online. Yes, you heard me!”
The issue features an interview with Ben who is the creator of Processing. A face off between Game Maker and Processing was then featured, with Game Maker taking the winning position. The issue also featured other unprofessional things, such as Nathans personal attack on GMTV for featuring him in their top 5 fails from episode 6. The magazine also features some nice reviews of some various games and other previews and interesting articles.
