While they never really went away, the gaming industry has recently seen a resurgence of physical versions of games hitting the market. Ranging in everything from standard to collector‘s editions, these versions allow fans to hold a physical product in their hands or display on their shelves. Could the return of printed gaming magazines be next?
That definitely appears to be the goal of a UK-based company called, Lost in Cult. Announced earlier this week, the new publishing start-up announced that the Kickstarter campaign for the first issue of its new video game journal – titled [lock-on] Volume 1 – is officially live.
[lock-on] Volume 1 will present feature articles from industry veterans surrounding the past, present, and future of PlayStation, while also offering up other insightful content pieces about current video gaming affairs. In general, [lock-on] will be a video game journal that is “centered around all things gaming, pop culture, and art” with a focus on preserving and immortalizing aspects of gaming history in a physical form. [lock-on] also wants to be a platform that helps indie developers and aspiring artists and writers gain more exposure.
