I was lucky to get the chance to write an article for the very first issue of "The Game Maker" magazine. Unfortunately Future Publishing decided that the magazine was not viable in this form and began to include future issues into PC Format. After a few more inlay issues the magazine was scrubbed. The article was all about creating a scrolling snowboarding game.
