Hyper Play - The new retro print fanzine.

The age of fanzines has definitely been and gone, replaced of course by the web, like so many other things, but it seems there's a few die-hards still  hanging on. If you're not familiar with the term a fanzine is a fan published magazine, usually put out by amateur enthusiasts and often focusing on niche subjects. Sci-fi, music, football teams and of course computer and video games were popular topics in the past and these magazines were sometimes the only medium by which fans could communicate with like minded others.

It's nice then to see a newly published fanzine, even if it may be one of the last of a dying breed. This one focuses on retro games, particularly RPGs and looks like it could have some interesting content if that's your bag. You can get issue one here at the reasonable price of  £3.50 in the UK and £4.50 for international orders.
