Welcome to the new Retro Survival message board.
As you are probably aware if you found your way here, Live Publishing (publishers of the excellent Retro Gamer magazine) went into administration on Monday 22nd August. The staff of Retro Gamer left the company, and no further issues of the magazine will be published.
We're all very upset by the demise of Retro Gamer. Unfortunately, Live also owed most of the freelancers money for articles that had either been published over the final few issues, or that had been written for inclusion in issue 19 or later. These articles will sadly never see the light of day in RG.
However, all is not lost. A large group of RG freelancers have grouped together and created this web site and discussion board with the title of "Retro Survival." We plan to do two things here:
1. We are putting together a CD or DVD that will contain all of the unpublished articles that had been written for RG. It will also contain a large number of articles from past issues of Retro Gamer, many of which are substantially larger than the versions that made it into print. We hope that the disc will be a popular item and are sure that it'll be packed with fantastic retro material both old and new.
We are planning to sell this for a low price (perhaps about the same as an issue of RG itself) once it's ready and hope that lots of you will be interested in purchasing a copy. All proceeds from the disc will be put towards paying the RG freelancers the money that they were owed by Live Publishing.
