MAGSAN Announcement!
« on: 13 Aug 2016, 22:49 »
I'm hereby announcing:



You might be asking yourself, what is MAGSAN?
Well I'll tell you!

It's the Monthly AGS Archives Newsletter, which will have a new issue published on the last day of every month.
It will showcase each game made in AGS released that month, announce next months MAGS rules, and feature articles written by AGSers.
(If you're interested in writing any AGS related articles at any point give me a shout!)

It will also announce any new AGS releases (possibly even as a standalone "issue" if it makes more sense), and any other AGS related news from that month.

Some of you stumbled upon it when viewing the new AGS Archives site, for those who didn't, you can all sign up via the form in the footer on the site: https://agsarchives.com.

If anyone feel like helping in any way, give me a shout! Any extra help will be highly appreciated :)

This sounds excellent! As most of you will know, I've not been very active on the forums lately - although I do still lurk on a regular basis - it's been so long my avatar broke :sad: A regular feature like this would be very welcome :smiley:

Hooray for the first issue making it! I definitely approve of having the Mags theme and the "Games released this month" sections, very sensible ideas. I wonder if you could have a section for "Games announced this month" similar to the "announced" section with screenshots as well as links, rather than just links in the editorial?

Thanks for giving this a shot, and extra thanks for the link to my little thing! I hope this newsletter takes off! :smiley:

This is an excellent first issue! I too particularly like the MAGS and Games Released This Month sections. I also like the shoutout to the Release Something thread and the A - Z of unrated games sounds like a promising series. I particularly like that all the games have links to their respective download pages. I can tell a lot of work went into this - well done :-D

Yeah, I added those quite close to the deadline, but I'll definitely try and do a much nicer section for the next one! :).
I don't really like the whole template setup atm, and plan on making one from the ground up, but html emails is a pain so not sure when I'll get around to doing that :P.
But when I do, it should hopefully look ever better :).

I also have to thank Baron for his lovely Blue Lobe Inc comic strips, Bicilotti for writing all the blurbs for the games announced/released and Jack for the great "fictional" articles.

Also thanks to Ibispi for filling in for Dave and writing the AGS fundraiser profile this issue!

Ah yeah, I do try and keep an eye on things like MAGS etc, in case there are games released not being added to the DB...

Thanks for link, I'll be downloading and adding it to the AGSA db.

Great - I choose now to see a typo in my own article for this!  Duh...

("This was perhaps the first game that showed my just how well AGS"... should be "me", if you can change it that would be great, otherwise it will remain there to mock me forever!  :-D (roll))

Nice edition!

I think though that you may have either misheard the English saying of "Oh well" and remembered it wrong, or just written it wrong:

"How well, beats your 9-to-5, I guess!"

(From the assassin game blurb)

First of all:

Happy Birthday MAGSAN!!

And a BIG thanx to all the people involved in releasing this great e-mag each month:

Baron: (blue Lobe Inc. comic)
 Always gives me a smile when reading Blue Lobe Inc.
 
Stupot: ("A-Z Unrated" games)
 Very nice way to stumble upon good (but often lesser know) ags games (or even canceled projects that did release a demo)
 
Dave (Seaman): (Golden Oldies)
 A great way to find some Golden Oldie Gems!
 Or, as in my case, to just refresh your memory on older ags gems.

Bicilotti: The Game blurbs (Games announced this month + Games released this month)
 Perfect way to quickly keep you up-to-date about (upcoming) releases.
 I especially like the format of the "just-3-lines blurbs"
 
Peder: (Founder, Management, and probably also writing)
 Thank you so much for keeping MAGSAN up 'n running!

(I hope I covered all the people working on this magazine...)




May this MAGSAN continue to drop in my e-mail box for a looooooong time!! :)

Wow, you really got me confused by changing the naming pattern - thought I somehow missed out the October issue 8-0

But actually, I like the new naming. Feels more natural, especially since it starts with the current MAGS topic.

Oh damn! Hopefully he just got sick of DeviantArt and went elsewhere.

Hearing this is really bugging me though. I started a thread asking if anyone knows how he is doing.

Thanks all,

May I ask why you're ending it?

Yes you may :), I'm just re-prioritizing the things I want to do in my free time as there's just too much all at once, MAGSAN unfortunately fell too far down the list to make it.

I wonder if anyone else in the community would be interested in taking it over? Perhaps with you as "Editor" or just around for guidance for the first few issues?
