Out now! Seeing red in Wireframe #17

By Ryan Lambie. Posted

Gore blimey, it's Wireframe time again: a mischievous issue 17 is available in stores and online from today, the 4 July. You'll be able to buy the magazine at your local supermarket or independent newsagent in the UK, or you can order a copy, subscribe, or even download a meaty - and best of all, free - PDF from this very site.

So what's in store this time? Well, you'll find all this and lots more:

Team Meat's Tommy Refenes talks exclusively about the making of his bloodily ambitious and much-anticipated platform sequel, Super Meat Boy Forever. We meet the maker of Mable and the Woods, the action-fantasy with a unique pacifist twist, and chart the traumatic fall - and dramatic rise - of Introversion, the studio behind indie darlings Darwinia and Prison Architect.

Team Meat open up about the hotly-anticipated Super Meat Boy Forever.

Elsewhere, we count down the days to the atmospheric adventure, A Place for the Unwilling, and chat to the developers who are doing amazing, innovative things with couch co-op games.

That still not enough goodness for you? Well, there's still more besides:

  • Using words and dialogue to create more involving video games
  • Recreate the path-following critters from the classic Lemmings
  • A student's remarkably faithful 32kB demake of Phil Fish's Fez
  • Profiled: HAL Laboratory, the minds behind Smash Bros. and Kirby

Then there's our usual mix of news, previews and reviews, including our verdicts on Outer Wilds, Judgement, and Super Mario Maker 2. Hurrah!

Prison Architect studio Introversion tell their incredible story in Wireframe #17.
