IGD News

Recommended Posts

At the risk of shooting myself in the foot, I am pre-announcing IGD News, an eight page monthly downloadable PDF zine for the independent gaming community. Hopefully in the not so distant future to also be a snail-mail newsletter, if interest develops. IGD News will have the following - Independent game reviews from your favorite game sites for those of you who are not able to regulary check some of your favorite review sites. Feature Articles dealing with issues important to the independent game community. Autopsies of the independent game development process from community members. Profiles of community members, companies and websites. Review of affordable tools for affordable game development. As well as some other planned features. Hopefully, IGD News will complement your web browsing similar to how other newsletters/newspapers/magazines complement your day to day lives. Anyway I just put up the website (Yes it looks bad and I am looking for paid help to redo it once I have content finalized) and am working on the layout of the first issue which is due out April 15, 2004. On the first issue, I have free advertising space and will probably continue being free until I build up subscribership. Speaking subscribing, I am giving away a 64MB USB memory stick to one of the first hundred subscribers and will have some more after that well as an NVIDIA video card. If any developers want to offer some free games down the road, will like to continue the offerings. Oh yea, one of the elements I would like to offer is the "flash download" where a game developer offers a discounted game to subscribers. Am still working the economics on this focus. So welcome one, welcome all and please excuse the mess. All comments are welcome if they are supportive. Thanks, Mojohammer editor@igdnews.com [URL=http://www.igdnews.com]WWW.IGDNEWS.COM[/URL] PS.. will be out at GDC on Thursay if you want to talk. Give me an email.
