Description Edit | History

In this issue:

Adventures are our theme for this Easter issue! Altin Gavranovic gives us part one of his tips for adventure design, and Darren Maclennan takes us into some strange places with a Twisted Tale. We hope the latter will become a regular feature. Another possible regular feature is the appreance of the inimitable Dr Rotwang. This issue, he looks at (among other things) whether gaming can be art. And finally, I take a stab at trying to deconstruct gaming into its component parts. Plus links, letters and important gaming news for your reading pleasure. Get into it! Ed.
