Press Release
Interactive Fantasy, the critically acclaimed magazine of game design and theory, will ship its long-awaited fourth issue on 17th November.

Interactive Fantasy (IF) is the world's only magazine devoted to the subject of creating and analysing RPGs. Issue 4 focuses on how technology will affect role-playing, with articles on virtual reality, interactive television, and the new generation of computer MUSHes.

The magazine also has in-depth design notes on cutting-edge game EVERWAY by its creator, Jonathan Tweet. There are also articles on the different styles of "Horror" role-playing, why more women don't play RPGs, role-play and ethics, and more. Plus almost forty pages of reviews, and lively letter-column debate.

With a new, brighter design, and a stunning cover by comics-goddess Mary Fleener, Interactive Fantasy #4 is our strongest
issue yet.

Interactive Fantasy is presented as a 160-page book, retailing for $7.95. It's available from all good game distributors and retailers around the world, or direct from the publisher.
