Out now! A very special Wireframe #4

By Ryan Lambie. Posted

Yes, Wireframe issue four is back for a brand new edition from the 20 December! You'll find your issue at your local supermarket or independent newsagent in the UK, or you can order a copy, subscribe, or even download a handy free PDF from this very site.

And because it's (nearly) Christmas, we have something rather special for you: a pair of limited edition Disco Elysium covers, created exclusively for us by developer ZA/UM.

Choose what kind of cop you want to be: you could go rogue with our Rage cover, or play by the book with our cerebral-looking Reason edition.

As for what's inside, you'll find all this and lots more:

The 'artists, writers, entrepreneurs, and socialists' behind our Disco Elysium covers give us the low-down on their unique detective RPG. The makers of Dual Universe explain how they're launching their 'EVE meets Minecraft' MMO, and we discover the truth behind composer Marty O'Donnell's lost soundtrack for Destiny.

Find out what happened to composer Marty O'Donnell's once-lost soundtrack for Destiny.

Elsewhere, we check out the forthcoming 1990s internet simulator, Hypnospace Outlaw, and delve into the unique catalogue of Capybara Games, purveyors of Sword and Sworcery and Below.

Plus, there's even more besides:

  • A step-by-step guide to publishing your games on itch.io
  • What video game producers do
  • How to recreate the thruster motion in Atari's classic Asteroids
  • What the future holds for the sandbox rescue sim, Stormworks

Then there's our usual mix of news, previews and reviews, including our verdicts on Just Cause 4, Katamari Damacy Reroll and the trippy Tetris Effect. You lucky, lucky people.
