Four pages from issue #1

Issue 1 - Four pages

Here are four pages from our first issue, which will be released at the Knudepunkt festival in Denmark.

What happens when you fall in love with a videogame character? When you ask your neighbor to murder you in the name of art? Is it possible to make a game about a subject like gang rape? Apart from bleed, we also talk about larp in Poland, the S&M games of J. Tuomas Harviainen and getting laid through roleplay.
