Out now! Ninjas take over Wireframe #47

By Ian Dransfield. Posted

Sneaking out of the shadows to hit you with some gaming goodness: Wireframe issue 47 is available to purchase online and in stores from today, February 4. 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.

“What,” you might be asking, “do I get in these enticing-looking 116 pages of issue 47?” Sit down and get comfortable for a second, we’ll let you in on the details:

Lince Works tells us all about its new and improved ninja-stealth opus, Aragami 2 – start with the phenomenal artwork on the cover, then work your way inside to read up on the challenges of bringing the sequel to life. There’s a look at Amanita Design, where we chat to studio founder Jakub Dvorský about the studio’s 17-year history and artist-led approach.

Heading to the ever-useful Toolbox section, this month we include a look at making a city using procedural generation, Howard Scott Warshaw chats about when he met Steven Spielberg, and – among other fine features – there’s a guide on how exactly to make a functional, fluid menu using Unreal Engine 4.

We hear from the devs behind this beaut of a ninja-'em-up.

Of course, there's plenty more besides - including:

  • A look at spaceships as game hubs and RPG refuges

  • The making of eco-conscious adventure, Alba

  • How to make your own Tron-like light cycle game

  • An update on the fuzzy funtimes of Super Animal Royale

This is all joined by our regular mix of news, previews and reviews, including verdicts on Super Meat Boy Forever, The Last Campfire, and GG Aleste 3.

PLUS: you can win a £100 voucher for Park London clothing in our latest competition!

Amanita Design gives us an exclusive tour of its unique point and click adventures.
