This is where it starts sucking. The guy who hired me knows what he wants. But needs help in creating it. I'm actually helping pick the name right now, we will have a limited run of the first issue 5,000 copies have been ordered by retailers. Right now the magazine is going to be free and we are planning a business model where our gaming league and retailers finance the magazine that will be free in select retailers.
Starting in British Columbia the five year business plan is to get it circulated coast to coast within five years and hopefully 50k-100k copies each magazine.
I am only attaching myself to this project because I think the free model is viable. Throw in the creation of a gaming league pitting gamers against one another across different media arts.
A tournament where the player must master not only video games but card games and board games. Searching across Canada for the ultimate gamers who are masters of all things game.
Also lucky for me I will also be pleasuring readers with exclusive video game industry content. Focusing a huge effort on our local retailers, publishers and developers.
This is a project I can see succeeding. At a time when print media is dying this is just the challenge I am looking for!
You mean your two great ones? Or replies on your wall? I haven't been able to be on consistently and on my.mobile its hard to look through your wall history.
Cant buy a copy, its a free magazine. With your address I could mail you the first issue when it has been printed. Also its only getting 5,000 copies first issue.
Its not an international magazine. Were starting here in BC primarily. The plan to go national is going to take at least a year as our gaming league is a major part of the magazines appeal. Getting the infrastructure in place to history events across Canada will take time and.money!
Not trying to ignore ya by the way. Just super busy and still don't have a PC.
