Gnazine returns… as Prodigy Game Magazine
November 22, 2008
“We are not politically correct at all. We give out intense news, previews, and reviews.”
The front page of this new publication is already impressive, containing tiny screenshots, (almost) unreadable text that says “Tutorials, Previews, Reviews, Exclusive Interviews”, and a logo that doesn’t fit at all. Don’t want to download the magazine? Here’s a screenshot:
Next, we have a table of contents:
Letter to the public – p.2
Interview with 2dcube- p.3
Toonimator Preview – p.4
YoYoGames Update – p.7
GML Coding Errors – p.7
Local News PGM -p. 8

Mr Noob The Comic – p.12
Adbarlian Castles EXCLUSIVE PREVIEW – p.13

What I’m looking forwards to? The “interview”, “Local News PGM”, “Mr. Noob The Comic”, and an exclusive interview with “Adbarlian Castles”. Wait, doesn’t that sound familiar? Oh, yeah, it’s a game by the magazine’s creator!
After this, a small letter to the public:
We are pleased to bring you one of the best Game Maker Magazines out there. I do have a history with making Game maker magazines. My 1st Game Maker Magazine was called the Gnazine. The Gnazine failed because of lack of coordination. I have made all the necessary improvements to this magazine so that the professionalism is shown. I have a real team who is helping in the production of this glorious magazine. With hard work and teamwork this magazine shall not be departed, forsaken, or irrationally created. I ask that if anyone would like to join our magazine team please email me at: email@example.com. We are accepting new writers, interviewers, artist, jokers, and experts. Anyone is accepted here. This is a community project, so let us all participate!
Maximum professionalism has already been shown, Nate, don’t worry!
Next up? Interview with 2DCube… usual boring interview stuff. But then:
Yes the most cyber war is being unleashed once again! Today’s victim is going to be “GM Weekly”. GM weekly has gone Bi-Weekly! The writers seem to have become lazy. We have no idea whether or not if the magazine will continue to be known as GM Weekly.
I am just kidding. GM Weekly is a great magazine. It is impressive that it can release an issue so often. I recommend GM Weekly to anyone. Do not despair about unmatched release dates.

…Wait, what? Next up, random app, some GML puzzles… Local News PGM:
ProdigyGM is going under construction. The site has acquired new domain names. The webmasters plan to link together all of the websites for a full community. Also Adbarlian Castles is getting a major upgrade. The game will have features never before seen in any indie, commercial, or GM Game. Hardcoregamer/Nateistoraw intends to release THE REAL DEMO of Adbarlian Castles soon. Also the time period for the game is now 2100, but Adbarlian is not on planet earth, so expect to see a crazy world.
I have to admit that Nate has me confused here… The ProdigyGM website is talking about a game called “Adbarlian County”… so what’s Adbarlian Castles?
Next up… article on GM MMO’s. Here’s some interesting highlights:
- The games posted on the GMC are MOs (Multilayer Online).
- The 39dll and Sock dll typically are the dlls used in online game creation.
And then there’s a review of “Wubly” by 2DCube:
…Wubly is not even a chick! According to the game, Wubly is asexual, and pink. Asexual is usually used for plants and fungi…
…The game_end() function is kinda, inappropriate, because when you close the game, you see the game’s size decrease, until it closes, but who asked for that animation? …
…Wubly has a brother, NOT REALLY ACCORDING TO
…I recommend this game to anyone who wants to have a ball, oooops, Wubly…
Genius. Next up, solutions to their GML puzzles and their comic:
We can’t wait to see what happens (on page 17). But first, exclusive preview: Adbarlian Castles!
Adbarlian Castles (RPG) is one of GM’s Most innovative 3d games. The game allows you to take the role of a wizard/magician. It is well known that the game was supposed to be a mmorpg; however, the People at ProdigyGM had a different style of humor. They allowed NPC to behave as if they were real life PLAYERS!
As you can see, the Prodigy Game Magazine presents unbiased opinions and exclusive insights on game development.
The NPCs respond to many KEYWORDS, including, yes I said it, profane phrases!
The enemy models and scenery is [sic] simply genius. The camera is also wonderful.
So when do you mention that this is your game?
Well, some random interview, GML script… and closing words:

That sure was an interesting read… but wait, there’s more… let’s not forget “Mr. Noob – The Comic”, and its thrilling conclusion:
Well, that sure made my day.
