Default Issue 3: Assignments


We are currently looking to enrich the content of the third issue with more reviews and articles. We are sorely lacking reviews of bad games (at least 4 more reviews needed), of newer games (at least 1 review for a game released between 1999 and 2001 needed), reviews of games from the 80s (at least 1 more review needed), misc reviews/interesting games that do not fall into the above categories (at least 1 more review needed).

Here is a list of titles that are ok to review:

Tlon, Iron Assault, Surface Tension, Drakan: Order of the Flame, Aliants: Desperate Battle for Earth, Giants: Citizen Kabuto, Laser Squad, Moonshine Racers, Risky Woods, Tower of Souls, Sentient.

Other suggestions are welcome, but are to be discussed via private message first.

- Possibly TC - on a crappy game review.
- DarthHelmet86 - Tlon review.
- verek_22 - on a review of his choice.
- jonh_sabugs - on T&T review.
- marko - on a review of his choice.


The new issue is planned to have features highlighting the history of a gaming company. The company should not be very well-known, but should have a significant portfolio of released titles. To give you a perspective Sensible Software and Westwood Studios count as well-known studios and not appropriate for this feature.

- Tracker - on a game company history article.

Interviews - Completed

We really need interviews. No actual limitations except that it must be related to old games, but I have some advice: forget about the big players (1), firs explain to the interviewed person what kind of magazine Abandoned Times really is and on what site it is hosted (2), not necessary for the interview to be with a game developer, but doing it with a simple gamer is not ok either (3); for example an interview with a popular DeviantArt artist that bases most of his art on video games is ok, as long as there is something interesting to say.

- saibot216 - on interviews.

Screenshots & Captions

We need screens and captions for some reviews. Contact me through PM or write in this thread in order to find out which games and take on the assignment. Currently we need screens and captions for:
  • 3 Games.

Do not post your submissions in this thread or forum. Either send them to me via PM or join the Abandoned Times crew and post them directly in the hidden Submissions forum.
Don't think about the probabilities. The smallest chance can take us a long way forward. It's not like we have anything else to lose.
