Out now! On another planet with Wireframe #69

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. The new edition is available exclusively online right now, so you can get a copy delivered to your door by ordering it directly from our website.

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

We catch up with the designers of Planet of Lana, a stunning-looking puzzle-platformer some five years in the making. The creators of Monkey Island uncover the secrets of the series’ world design, from the nineties original to the present, while Digitiser’s Mr Biffo delves further into point-and-click history to explore the genre’s origins.

Elsewhere, we check out the latest horror franchise to get the asymmetric multiplayer treatment, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, and meet the developers responsible for making the job simulator one of the year’s hottest genres.

Over in our Toolbox section, there’s an in-depth guide to designing immersive first-person adventures, a beginner’s guide to creating organic-looking assets in Unity with Sprite Shape, while a seasoned animation director reveals how he got into the games industry.

The gorgeous Planet of Lana is this month's cover star - plus there's a FREE exclusive poster inside the mag. Hurrah!

If that isn’t enough Wireframe for you, then how about these bullet points:

  • Lightyear Frontier, the upcoming mech farming game
  • Code your own point-and-click homage to Monkey Island
  • The art of using graffiti to tell stories in video game worlds
  • ScummVM, the front-end that unlocks a wealth of retro classics

Plus you'll find our usual selection of news, previews and reviews, including our verdicts on God of War Ragnarok, How to Say Goodbye, and Gotham Knights.

Explore the secrets of Monkey Island with its original creators in our in-depth feature.
