If you're out shopping for essentials, Wireframe's available in selected supermarkets and newsagents, but you can also get a copy delivered to your door by ordering it directly from this very website.

So what's inside your darkly fantastical, 116-page issue 46? Well, you'll find all this and lots more besides:

Tarsier Studios tells us about its upcoming sinister sequel, Little Nightmares II, from its cinematic influences to the challenges of turning the previous game’s star into an AI sidekick. Then we chat to the main players at Sierra On-Line to find out about the history of the King’s Quest series, while Night School Studio open up about their breakout indie hit, Oxenfree.

In our Toolbox section, we break down Final Fantasy VII’s city of Midgar to uncover why it’s such an iconic location; the Oliver Twins show you how easy it is to make a game tor the Nintendo Switch, and this month’s Source Code shows you how to make a Pipe Mania-style puzzler.

Back and more sinister than ever: we look ahead to Little Nightmares II.
