Issue 2 on Kickstarter

Eight Bit Magazine Issue 2 Kickstarter project launched!

Eight Bit Magazine celebrates early eight bit microcomputers from the 1970's to the early 90's. While most publications cover only the gaming aspect of such computers we want to cover the hardware and programming side of things as well. After a successful Issue 1 Kickstarter (…/8bitmagazi…/eight-bit-magazine) we are delighted to offer even more in Issue 2.

Kickstarter funding starts at 6 Euro which will get you a printed copy of the magazine delivered free to anywhere in the world. Click the following link to view the kickstarter:


Issue 2 Announced

Eight Bit Magazine Issue 2 will be available as a Kickstarter project later this week. Kickstarter is being used as it is a great promotional tool and we think it's the best way to offer a subscription of 6 issues or 12. It will be a 30 day project instead of 60 and the magazine will go to print in early September.

Finally, for Amstrad CPC fans only. Check out Colour Personal Computing, a new Kickstarter project by James Ford for an Amstrad CPC fanzine.


Issue 1 a success

With over 400 issues sold so far and enough funding from our kickstarter project for future issues we can certainly call issue 1 a success. Below are independent video reviews of the magazine. There are a few remaining issues available to purchase so get yours here.
