Out now! An arcade perfect Wireframe #57

By Ryan Lambie. Posted

It’s the first Thursday of the month, which can only mean one thing: there’s a new Wireframe in town. Yes, the all-action, arcade-themed new edition is available from today, 2 December. As always, 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 in the village store this time? You'll find all this and lots more:

Night School Studio gives us an exclusive inside look at 2022’s most anticipated indie sequel, OXENFREE II: Lost Signals. Then, in a coin-op special, we discover the highs and lows of running a modern amusement arcade, and provide a run-down of the games that simply have to be enjoyed in their original, chipboard cabinet form.

Night School Studios chat exclusively about the upcoming adventure sequel, OXENFREE II.

Elsewhere, we meet the fans who’ve kept Sonic the Hedgehog’s spirit alive with their own, unofficial releases, and find out exactly why black history is so rarely depicted in video game westerns.

In our Toolbox section, we’ll show you how to make a Rainbow Islands-style platformer in our in-depth guide, and share some essential tips for ensuring your video game crowdfunding campaign is a roaring success.

That still not enough Wireframe goodness for you? Then there’s all this to too:

  • Get in the sea with Silt – one of next year’s most beautiful adventure games
  • The makers of Hexagroove are back with the rhythm-based puzzler, Backbeat
  • A guide to using snippets of lore to heighten your game project’s storytelling
  • Recreate Lords of Midnight’s landscape engine in this month’s Source Code

Plus you'll find our usual menu of news, previews and reviews, including our verdicts on Sable, SkateBIRD and Metroid Dread.

We meet the arcade owners who are trying to keep the spirit of ageing coin-ops alive.
