Well i've read the issues, the content is interesting (sometimes a bit too focused on amateur games but thats alright) the editor could do a better job since often the text is a bit scrambled in an unorderly way or the sentances are poorly built.
Well, I will agree with you that they do focus on the "amateur" games but imho that's where some of the most exciting things with adventure games are happening. There is really not a whole lot going on with adventure games in the commercial market at the moment, and there could be significantly less with Microids being bought up by Ubi soft. And the text... some of the sentences are a little wonky, but you can't expect too much from a free magazine with little to no advertising.

The amateur games are fun and you gotta fill up the magazine with something... but the adventure-genre has seen darker days in the recent past. i believe we're seeing a slow revival of adventuregames. Vampyr, Niburu (from the creators of Black Mirror, hopefully they've learned from their mistakes... if they have Niburu will be a good game), Myst V, The Moment of Silence and Still Life (offspring/sequel to Post Mortem, a rather underrated game IMO)

k: Fair enough, and don't forget about Wanted aka The Westerner, that's a great game too... (We don't have Moment of Silence here in Canada yet, unless that has changed in the last few days :Brain: ). Also though, these guys are probably not sent the free copies of games that the major magazines are, they've probably got to pay for them, so it's really only the more amateur companies who would use them as a way to get out the word about their products. IMHO companies like Bad Brain Entertainment (Vampyre) and Himalaya Studio's (commercial end of AGDInteractive) need the quiet noise of magazines like this to spread the word about what they're doing. I know that I would have heard of Vampyre much later, or not at all, unless I had read about it here. With any luck Herculean Efforts (The Apprentice) next game will be a commercial one as well.

I'll check it out sometime, looks pretty nice.
Only problem is Adobe Acrobat Pro and Firefox never seem to get along and result in goth crashing.

Happens to me too, the document presents itself fine but if I try to go back or anything then the whole thing crashes.

Considering that it has been 5 YEARS since the problem occured, I'm sure Havell has found a solution by now.
