I am interested to get the physical editions. Is there a way to buy the physical magazines locally in Australia (I believe this is made in Australia) rather than having to pay expensive overseas shipping costs to Australia from Protovision?

Hi Epsilon. Thanks for your interest. We will be printing #15 and the upcoming #16 together in Australia to save costs, as soon as #16 is ready (mid-year hopefully), and they will be shipped from Australia. Keep an eye on the Reset social media for more news when they are released. Reset #14 was only available from Protovision as they printed and distributed the issue themselves.


Ah, ok. Thanks for clarifying. I look forward to getting Issues 15 and 16 locally!

oh, my latest game EVIL DUNGEON would had fit nicely to that theme. :-)

Bugger! Has your game released yet? I would love to see it!

Yes, but not so long ago. Try it out for free. https://www.retroarts.de/

Will there be a print edition?


Absolutely! Keep an eye on our social media channels for a heads up when it's available.

Synthia 2 - nice game!

Cheers Saberman! Any chance for Synthia 2 to feature on IRN?
