A Profound Waste of Time is a new games magazine that “plays host to a rich variety of voices from inside and outside the videogame industry”. Which means the first issue features pieces by folks like Undertale’s Toby Fox and Life is Strange’s Ashly Burch alongside some very nice illustrations.

The mag was actually Kickstarted back in 2016, but has doubled in size since its original brief, hence the delay. The first issue also features a story by Vlambeer’s Rami Ismail, as well as an interview with Shovel Knight’s Yacht Club Games.

Aaaaand, it’s ordered, can’t wait to read it, it looks awesome

On a side note; video game magazines are underrated, I still have a subscription to the printed version of Game Informer (Shipping to Denmark is a real pain...). There’s something to be said about magazines, reading the features in print form is so much more satisfying and relaxing to me, than an online feature ever will be (Sorry Kotaku), even if it’s on a tablet. I still fondly remember the old Nintendo and Playstation magazines in the 90s, maybe I’m just getting old and misty-eyed.
