Out now! Fighting the system in Wireframe #37

By Ryan Lambie. Posted

Another fortnight, another fantastic issue of Wireframe: a feature-filled issue 37 is available in stores and online from today, the 23 April. If you're out shopping for essentials, it'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.

We also have some great value subscription offers, and there's always the option to download the magazine as a handy (and free) PDF - read on to find out how.

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

Developer Atomic Wolf give us the lowdown on their dystopian, comic book action game, Liberated. Design legend Jordan Mechner talks exclusively to us about the making and pioneering animation techniques behind his 1989 classic, Prince of Persia. And we chat to a new wave of developers about the influence of the original Fallout, and the re-emergence of the post-apocalyptic RPG.

Jordan Mechner tells us about the pioneering animation techniques he used to bring Prince of Persia to life.

Over in our Toolbox section, we'll show you how to make your own procedurally generated dungeons, and how to code your own homage to Atari's Lunar Lander.

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

  • Hands on with the razor-sharp rogue-lite platformer, ScourgeBringer

  • A solo dev's three-year battle to make the sci-fi adventure, Headspun

  • How real-world urban planning can help you design a video game city

  • A brief history of the Sega Game Gear and its finest exclusive games

Then there's our usual mix of news, previews and reviews, including our verdicts on Ori and the Will of the Wisps, Pilgrims, and Corruption 2029. You lucky, lucky people.

A new generation of developers are harking back to the isometric, post-apocalyptic brilliance of Fallout. We had a chat with them.
