Diskmags dead on Amiga?
« on: January 20, 2023, 07:51:37 PM »
Ghandy here from Nukleus.

I'd like to know why so few people do care of reading or producing a diskmag. I really like those interviews which are online here. But with the graphics and the music running in the background, it's really something different. Also on PC the era or diskmags is over as all three former active mags are dead, which were PaIN, ZINE and Hugi.

The situation on the Amiga is compareable. Since the last issue of JP in April 2022 nothing has been released which could be described as a diskmag. Even on Atari there are some diskmags which come out from time to time. And on the C64 the diskmag scene is quite active with a lot of mags. And it seems, some of them are really of a high quality. But why not on Amiga?

People find free time to create demos and intros, but not anymore to produce a decent mag. I ask myself why.
