WELCOME READERS!

t is that time of the yearagain, just a few monthsafter our previous releasethere is another issue for youto make your way through.
As we are well known for (at leastI think we are) we have puttogether another great issue, thestand out feature being themassive exclusive we haveconducted on 'ArcMagi', thesequel to TeeGee's successfulmagical strategy game 'Magi'.Make sure you have a lookthrough some of the mouthwatering screenshots as well asget an in depth look at the earlydevelopment of ArcMagi.Over the last few months quite abit has been happening with GM,two GM8 Betas were releasedwithin a month, we have alsoseen YoYo Games extend thethreshold for free upgrades toGM8 to anyone who registeredGM7 Pro this year - surprisinglythere are still people complainingon the YYG Glog. Development onthe GMCG appears to continue tobe growing strong, we have gotsome great interviews with theleaders of the project that youshould take a look at.Plus there is a lot more, take alook at the contents to the rightand have a read throughwhatever suits your fancy.

GMTECH MAGAZINE UPDATES
Once November 29th rolls round it willofficially be three years since our firstrelease. We are one of the longest runningmagazines and we would have never made itthis far if it wasn't for the support of all thereaders and writers, so thank you to everyonewho has ever been involved in GMTech oneway or another. However, all good thingsmust come to an end and following a declinein the amount of members who are able todevote a few days a month to work on somecontent for the magazine we will see adecline in the amount of issues we releaseover the next year.We aim to put together another small issuebefore the end of the year, so, if you wish tohelp out and submit ideas or content visit theGMTech forum, register and post all yourcomments on the forum.
