Out now! A bushy-tailed Wireframe #5

By Ryan Lambie. Posted

It's a new year, and a new edition of Wireframe. Yes, issue five is available in stores and online from today, the 17 January. You'll be able to buy the magazine at your local supermarket or independent newsagent in the UK, or you can order a copy, subscribe, or even download a handy free PDF from this very site.

So what's inside? Well, you'll find all this and lots more:

Designer Andrew Shouldice takes us behind the scenes on his forthcoming action-adventure Tunic, about a tiny fox in a sprawling fantasy world. The BAFTA-winning developers behind Monument Valley 2 and Alto's Adventure discuss their paths through the industry. Director Suda51 talks Grasshopper, Kafka and wrestling, and takes stock of his career so far.

The art of keeping a secret: Andrew Shouldice talks to us about his charming Tunic.

Elsewhere, we check out the gracefully violent platform-shooter My Friend Pedro, chat to undersea gods in Mythic Ocean, and look back at the majestic arcade games of Data East.

Plus, there's even more besides:

  • Vicarious Visions reveal how they revived Crash Bandicoot
  • Transmission, a soothing driving sim from solo game dev Jon Dadley
  • Part two of our guide to making your own FPS in Unity
  • How to make your own arcade-style high-score table

Then there's our usual menu of news, previews and reviews, including our verdicts on Smash Bros Ultimate, Desert Child and Mutant Year Zero. You lucky, lucky people.

It's back to the eighties with the soothing driving sim, Transmission.
