Retro Gamer, the first magazine to focus entirely on Retro Gaming is no more, at the moment.
After 18 issues their publisher, Live Publishing Ltd., went into administration.
Issue 18 (August 2005) came bundled with my DEF Tribute to Zzap!64, and turned out to be the
Swan Song of the highly appreciated mag. Whatever happens, a buy out, or maybe other publishers
will start to produce their own 'Retro' title, Retro fans still have the Retro section in Games TM.
