Out now! Dancing with death in Wireframe #13

By Ryan Lambie. Posted

Another fortnight, another fantastic issue of Wireframe - the death-and-dancing filled issue 13 is available in stores and online from today, the 9 May. 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 tonnes more:

Developer Kong Orange talk to us exclusively about their one-of-a-kind puzzle adventure game, Felix The Reaper: a romantic comedy about a dancing spectre of death. We meet the developers intent on pushing the detective game genre into unique new arenas, and find out what it really takes to sit in a room and make a game all on your own.

Death and the Maiden in Felix The Reaper, previewed in issue 13.

Elsewhere, we check out the Afrofuturist strategy game We Are The Caretakers, and find out more about the PyBadge - a tiny, programmable handheld console you can wear on your lapel.

That still not enough goodness for you? Well, there's still more besides:

  • Learn how to create an Overwatch-style teleport mechanic in Unity
  • Escaping the law in the top-down GTA homage, American Fugitive
  • Atari legend HS Warshaw on defining what a game is, and why it's important
  • Toaplan, Japan's masters of the 2D shooter, profiled

Then there's our usual mix of news, previews and reviews, including our verdicts on Days Gone, Weedcraft Ink and Steamworld Quest. You lucky, lucky people.

Obra Dinn, Her Story, and more - the indie devs evolving the detective genre.
