A lot of mags will come out after Breakpoint. Cows`n Snakefights is half finished, Saxonia is in the making with new graphics and code. And last but not least the Worldcharts wait to be resurrected.

If Deviance manages to finish a version for Windows, there will be also a miggy version from Scoopex. But theres no exact timetable been set. Details will be discussed at Breakpoint for sure. Well keep you informed.

To Zine or Not 2 Zine! Brainstorm is back in town!

The creators of the wellknown diskmag Zine are back in biz. You can reach their brand new website at http://brainstorm.untergrund.net

Some original members, like the german Axel and some new ones, like Mice (member of Zenon), the poles Stefkos, Jazzcat (Appendix), the norwegian Mystra (ex-Stone Arts) and many more teamed up. Sadly they do not intend to realise any productions on Amiga but on PC.

Sadly they also didn’t open any pipeline for Zine. Not yet, maybe some more people should complain until they’ll do ;-)
