Wireframe

Out now! A monstrously musical Wireframe #65

By Ryan Lambie. Posted

It’s the first Thursday of the month, which can only mean one thing: a new edition of Wireframe is available for your reading pleasure. As ever, the mag’s available in selected supermarkets and newsagents, but you can also get a copy delivered to your door by ordering it directly from our website.

What do we have packed into the issue this time? You'll find all this and lots more:

We chat to Bytten Studios about its evolved riff on the monster-catching RPG, Cassette Beasts. Kepler Interactive give us the story behind its ambitious tropical island sandbox, Tchia. And Digitiser legend Mr Biffo asks: where have all the catchy video game tunes gone?

Gotta catch 'em all - on audio tape. We chat to the makers of Cassette Beasts.

Elsewhere, we look at The Beatles’ subtle yet lasting impact on games, discover how the industry has helped raise money for charities, from the 1980s to the present, and chat to veteran designer Dylan Cuthbert about his glittering career, from Star Fox to The Tomorrow Children.

Over in our Toolbox section, there’s our guide to designing brain-tickling puzzles and problems of all kinds, and we’ll also show you how to make rideable mounts – from cars to horses – in Unreal Engine.

The subtle yet ever-present impact of The Beatles on video games.

You want more? Here’s more:

  • Super Rare Games on their mixtape indie game compilations
  • Nightingale: the upcoming survival game from ex-BioWare devs
  • Dissecting Roki’s lyrical storytelling with its narrative designer
  • Make an homage to the gravity-defying platformer, Metal Storm

Plus you'll find our usual selection of news, previews and reviews, including our verdicts on Neon White, TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge, and the cat-tastic Stray.

The games industry as a charitable force for good: from the 1980s to the present.
