There is a new retro gaming magazine that I backed on Kickstarter and I highly recommend it! It’s in the twilight of the campaign but still needs your support!
RETRO Magazine is an upcoming independent print, digital and online publication dedicated to the past, present and future of the video gaming pastime that will harken back to the amazing magazines from the 80’s, 90’s and early 2000’s.
RETRO will be offered in BOTH digital and print editions and published bi-monthly starting January 2014.
Each issue will be a minimum of 52-pages, utilize a maximum of 4-pages of ads and will feature high quality gloss print and thick stock cover.
ALL PRINT subscriptions will include the digital enhanced versions free!
HOW WE’RE GETTING OUR START:
We’re currently in the final days of our Kickstarter campaign and need support from gamers everywhere to get things going:
