only mentioned or is there an article about us? is it worth buying it? (I usually don't buy game magazines, but if it's worth it, I'll probably take one)

It's only a short mention. I didn't expect much more, since we are under development and they usually only mention mods when they are finished. I'm quite surprised that we were mentionet at all. :) I was writing an email about some other topic (John Carmacsk remark about the modding szene being dead) and mentioned our site as well. And the editor said he liked it a lot, and will mention it in the next issue. :)

The gaming mag I get, Computer Gaming World, has been continuously adding more and more stuff about mods, to the point where they actually review mods as if they were commercially released games. I definetly think we should send them a e-mail about us once we have something to show to the public.

I don't think it does much good to get publicity before the game is near to completion. For a commercial game sure, but not for a mod.

This game has quite a limited appeal. Anyone who'll really be into this should already know about it from keeping up with the general Thief scene, or doom mod scene.
ALso, people tend to forget about unfinished mods very quickly. THey get excited about it, come to the site, see it's a year away from completion, ask some dumb questons, and wander off again.
What benefits do you think we get from having articles in magazines so long before we're ready to show anything, apart from the 'wow, we got like mentioned in a *real* magazine and stuff!!!!11' factor?
I guess it just boosts our ego to think that game magazine editors are interested in our game enough to print something about it, even though it's far from release.

Right. Of course we shouldn't read to much into it, but it doesn't hurt either.

In the current issue of Gamestar 12/08 there is another short article about us. :) While I consider that good, the article is a bit missleading. Specifically it says that we are at version 1.0. Otherwise it's ok. :)

Would be really nice if they contacted us to get their facts straight. :) Still, nice to hear.

I just had time to read it and it's not so bad. It's more a general article, because apparantely they included our mod on their DVD this time. They even mentioned that fan made mission. :D

I already bought it. :) Must see if I can scan the article somehow.

Hmmm... I considering renewing my subscription. I cancelled it some time ago, because I don't play so much anymore, but somehow I miss the news. :)

If you want relevant gaming news, go to http://www.thedarkmod.com/ :laugh:

Which issue has the article? I am trying to get hold of one either tomorrow or on Saturday, and I can easily scan it (yeah for multi-devices :)

I tried to buy it, but out of the four places I tried on 2008-11-29, only 1 carried Gamestar, and despite it not even being December, the already replaced the magazines with the January 2009 edition. WTF?
