Out now! The gnarliest yet: Wireframe #58

By Ian Dransfield. Posted

It’s the first Thursday of the month, the signal is shining in the sky, it can mean just one thing: it's time for a new issue of Wireframe. This month's totally radical new edition is available from today, 6 January. 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 our gargantuan bag of tricks this time? You'll find all this and lots more:

Roll7 chats to us about its gorgeous, welcoming, and totally gnarly skateboarding sequel OlliOlli World. Elsewhere - and maintaining a steady line - we take a look at the world of relaxing skating games, alongside a peek forward at the most exciting and interesting games coming up in 2022, both big and small.

Roll7 chats to us about a whole new world - an OlliOlli World, to be precise.

Meanwhile, love is in the air as we look at how video games have handled romance over the years, and we profile Runner Duck - studio behind breakout hits Bomber Crew and Space Crew.

Over in Toolbox, we offer in-depth tips and guides for making your own collectible card game, as well as showing you how to make your own retro gaming machine - housed entirely within a controller.

You want more from Wireframe? Well, Wireframe has your back. There's this too:

  • Alliance Peacefighter is previewed, bringing back linear space-based battling
  • Make your own skating game with our superb Source Code guide
  • A celebration of the original Xbox's 20th birthday and picks of its best games
  • Kim Justice offers her thoughts on the recent reboot of GamesMaster

Plus you'll find our usual menu of news, previews and reviews, including our verdicts on The Dark Pictures Anthology: House of Ashes, Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, and Tunche.

Serene skateboarding; a subgenre of pure delight that we take a closer look at.
