880 Gamer Amiga Gaming Magazine - Issue One

Hi everyone,

First time posting here, I normally live over on Lemon

Anyways, I have made a little Amiga gaming magazine called 880 Gamer and have put it online for anyone to check out if they like. Its not big, but I plan to make more of these bite sized little magazines if people like it.



The magazine even comes with a cover disc which you can throw into your emulator or write out to a real fantastic plastic (A500 - A1200 compatible).

You can download issue One here :

Please have a look, and let me know what you think either here, or by emailing 880Gamer@gmail.com

Cheers!

Thanks, glad you liked it. Its a bit rough around the edges I know, but its the first time I have done anything like this Thanks for spreading it around as well.

The next issue might have a little more meat to it, but I don't think I will go into the whole tutorials thing as its meant to be just a small bite sized bit of gaming fun and nothing to serious... plus I would never have the time to do anything to in depth. But agree with what you are saying, CU Amiga was my fav amiga mag as I thought it had a good balance of games and tech.

Who knows... perhaps one day there will be a "880 Gamer PLUS!"

Excellent effort looks awesome, very well laid out, reminds me of old times I had a quick flick through the pdf and coverdisk on my phone, I'll have a proper read when I get home tonight. Keep up the good work, I look forward to future issues

Hey, this is a fantastic effort and initiative, Comiga! I especially like the added touch of a coverdisk!

I'm looking forward to having a proper look at this over the weekend.

In the meantime, good luck with spreading the word!

Thanks everyone.

I originally wanted to do some game reviews on Lemon but it was very limited, plus I was really impressed with APOV but wished it had a cover disc like magazines gone by and a demo review section like CU Amiga had... and so 880 Gamer was born.
