Retro Gamer #28

A new issue of Retro Gamer came in the mail yesterday and it looks like a very good issue. Here are some of the highlights:

  • Developer Lookback: Lucasarts (part two)
  • The Making Of… StarFox
  • 3DO – Interactive Multiplayer
  • The Making Of… Breakout
  • Company Profile: Core Design

You also have a couple of big articles + a lot of small one. I look forward to read it all.

From what i remember reading back in the day (early 90ies), the 3DO was a big project to be the big next thing. It worked great on paper, an probably in pratcise. But what I think killed the machine, was the high pricetag.

Head over to to learn more.

Retro Gamer #27

At last, a new edition of the mag for all the retro fans out there. And they are now on no. 27. The whole mag is a highlight, but if I have to pick a few that may be of interest:

  • The making of… Boulder Dash
  • Sega Mega Drive
  • The making of… Zelda: “Wand of Gamelon” & “Link: Faces of Evil” (CDi)
  • The Definitive OutRun

As allways, it’s fun to read the Back to the Eighties. There’s so much I didn’t know that I actualy knew, when I read this sections. If you haven’t bought this issue yet, go out and buy it or why not subscribe to Retro Gamer, it’s well worth the money.
