NAL launches Rekame Mag
June 7, 2010
Andrew McCluskey starts his Rekame Mag (Game Maker spelt-backwards) with a good summary of publications past and present and outlines his plans for a “fun” magazine rather than one that will stick to a stringent release schedule.
Once you make it past the red on blue cover the content consists of four game reviews, an interview with former Overbyte editor Greyson Wright in which he reveals that he is working on the return of Overbyte in website form, articles on originality, keeping games child-safe and some moderation advice.
NAL also includes another Game Maker cryptic crossword, this one featuring the names/team names/aliases of Game Maker developers and a re-wording of Ozzy Osbourne’s Hellraiser lyrics.
A couple of things didn’t read quite right in the opening article but other than that it was thoroughly enjoyable.

Pretty good. Needs some work…
But who am I to talk…
It was okay. I didn’t believe in the originality article, but everything else was pretty neat.

This is a great magazine, i srly hope Andrew will make some more of them.
I did not agree on the This is Infinity, i think its one of the most stylish Indie Games ever made, but thats just my opinion.
I rather liked the cover. Wonderful magazine Andrew. I hope for another one.
I loved Blopper, was one of the first GM games I ever played when it came out. Nice magazine, but please change your host, I got at least 3 popup ads (with Google Chrome, popup blocker enabled).
