Out now! An immersive Wireframe #61

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 take a deep dive into Silt, British developer Spiral Circus’s bleakly beautiful adventure-puzzler, and pick out 20 similarly atmospheric platformers you can play right now. Then we meet the enthusiasts behind MiSTer, the hardware project that’s revolutionising the retro gaming scene, and talk to the developers using contentious blockchain tech in their games.

There's always a bigger fish: we chat to the developers of the gorgeous undersea adventure, Silt.

Elsewhere, we take an early look at Final Vendetta, the upcoming brawler from the creators of Xeno Crisis. Then, over in our Toolbox section, we provide a beginner’s guide to shaders and how to use them, and show you the essential tips you’ll need to spice up your game’s multiplayer maps.

What? You want more? Then how about all this:

  • Make a top-down homage to The Legend of Zelda
  • Exploring Nigeria’s growing video game community
  • Celebrating the Nintendo Switch’s indie game eco-system
  • XEL: the 3D Zelda-like with a science fiction edge

Plus you'll find our usual menu of news, previews and reviews, including our verdicts on Sifu, Horizon Forbidden West, and that perfectly-fine-we-suppose Elden Ring game you may have heard about.

Our pick of the 20 best atmospheric adventures you can play right now.
