A great new crowdfunding project aims to bring a whole new type of game magazine to your door.
Game magazines are sort of the dying breed right now. There are a few publications left and most of the action is happening right here on the web. But there are still people, who want to hold a nicely produced paper magazine in their hands. And there are people willing to make this kind of product.
The cover art is done by Dan Mumford.
‘A Profound Waste of Time’ is a gaming magazine about indie games, coming from a very talented team from London. At the helm we have Caspian Whistler, Darren Wall (Read-Only Memory), and Ian Evenden (, Official Xbox Magazine and NGamer). The first issue is illustrated by Dan Mumford. The list of contributors (agan, first issue) is mighty impressive: Jonathan Holmes, Adrian Bauer, Rami Ismail, Darren Wall, Tommy Refenes, Temmie Chang. Most of the pledges will become the compensations to the contributors.
On the right, we have a special cover for the most generous readers.
“A Profound Waste of Time” is supposed to be a monthly project (at least we hope so), but with the pledge you can only get the 1st issue, so maybe it’s not going to be published just as often. You can support the magazine here!
