Floating Island Game in PC Gamer UK Magazine
News posted 1st October, 2008 by The Chris Street  
Yup thats right, Hempuli's ingenious game Floating Island Game has made it into the November 2008 issue of PC Gamer in the UK, as well as onto the cover DVD. Congratulations Hempuli :)

(Some) comments from PC Gamer:
"The charmingly drawn, colourful levels are filled with mawkish birds and gawking monsters. You click around, working out what's interactive, and devise your plan..."

PC Gamer Magazine is the best selling PC games magazine in the UK.





One of my Demo's was published in it a few years back. "Bob The Butcher" the game was called, and it was really terrible now I look back at it.

Jason Orme, don't spoil the moment Haha, I've seen one of Beiber's games make it into a local magazine, but that magazine didn't give a very good review of it.

Anyway, congratulations, Hempuli!

Congrats ^^ haven't bought PC Gamer in a while but they were the chaps who introduced me to Duke Forever.

Seems like us clickers are getting about these days

Congrats Hempuli!
 
Posted by Jason Orme 1st October, 2008

lol, I remember the feeling at the time, but now I look back and cringe at how bad it was. But the great thing here is you have created a great game to be proud of when you look back on it.
 
Posted by -Athan- 1st October, 2008

appearing in a magazine is awesome, even if its only local(like PC Gamer in UK).

Congratulations Hempuli! I played your FIG demo a while back and it was a lot of fun! Now I should go get the whole thing!

It's good that the magazines pick up on indie titles nowadays - soon we'll have our own magazines .
 
Posted by Pixelthief 2nd October, 2008

very good publicity.
 
Posted by danjo 2nd October, 2008

wd. make them give you copies of the mag - normally they will offer that when they ask for your permission.

lol, Ben i hope it will be true
 
Posted by Introversity 2nd October, 2008

Awesome! But it's obviously local, since I have no idea what "twee" means. >_>
 
Posted by viva/volt 2nd October, 2008

It's British slang .

"Twee: Overly quaint, dainty, cute or nice"

 
Posted by Ski 2nd October, 2008

Chiefly British : affectedly or excessively dainty, delicate, cute, or quaint <such a theme might sound twee or corny Times Literary Supplement>
 
Posted by Assault Andy 2nd October, 2008

Well done man, that's a great achievement!
 
Posted by alastair john jack 2nd October, 2008

Absolutely gorgeous! The only Click game to ever make it into any magazine! Fantastic achievement!

"The only Click game to ever make it into any magazine! Fantastic achievement!"

Umm... no. There were many before this.
 
Posted by Ski 2nd October, 2008

X_Sheep is really, really jealous
 
Posted by The Chris Street 2nd October, 2008

Yup, its not the only klik game to make it into a magazine
 
Posted by Ski 2nd October, 2008

Mine was in a Finnish Magazine, apparently o.o
 
Posted by -Athan- 2nd October, 2008

lol, practically, all of us are jealous

but not me! cuz i know i can't make cool games
 
Posted by Eternal Man [EE] 2nd October, 2008

Noitu Love 2 got two or more pages in Swedens absolutely biggest videogame magazine, I can tell you I was jealous ;> They had an interview with Nifflas once too. Really great magazine!
 
Posted by Hempuli 2nd October, 2008

Yeah, this game definately ISN'T the first
I get the magazine that had Adam's streetwise in it
 
Posted by Ski 2nd October, 2008

Scan it you taunting munchkin
 
Posted by -Athan- 2nd October, 2008

lolololol
 
Posted by s-m-r 2nd October, 2008

Way to go, man! Congratulations!!!
 
Posted by Va1entine 2nd October, 2008

I've bought the magazine purely because Hempuli's F.I.G game is init! I want to read everything that was said, this is an amazing achievement! Well done Hempuli!

At least they deserve it
 
Posted by alastair john jack 3rd October, 2008

Can you show us the Streetwise ones Hempuli?
 
Posted by Johnny Look 3rd October, 2008

lol guies don't you think you are overjoying a bit ? 3 out of my 4 games made it to at least one magazine each, and it doesn't make me that proud, simply because I'm aware they are crap. And 2 of them are click games.





However please note Im not saying it's not something to be proud of, and in this case pcgamer is a pretty important magazine and hempuli's is pretty good.

Posted by Eternal Man [EE] 4th October, 2008

I don't see how one could overjoy over the fact that a fellow clicker got attention and recognicion outside of the community and the internet.
 
Posted by Tim 4th October, 2008

awesome achievement Arvi, well done
 
Posted by danjo 4th October, 2008

i just lmao at some of these comments. please - we NEED more mew people to discover clickteams products.
 
Posted by danjo 4th October, 2008

and adam, how on earth is x_sheep jealous? he corrected a ludicrous statement.
 
Posted by Dr. James MD 4th October, 2008

Me and that Cave Jumper guy got our games on some US show
 
Posted by Marko 4th October, 2008

Congratulations and good work dude!!
 
Posted by Ski 4th October, 2008

Danjo, learn when to take someone seriously.
 
Posted by Johnny Look 4th October, 2008

Eternal Man: rofl feeling happy for someone and overjoying are pretty diferent things.

danjo: those who will learn about the game from pcgamer won't give a crap about how the game was made, unless they see a mmf or tgf splash screen saying "make your own game in a couple of clicks" which isn't the case.
 
Posted by Hempuli 5th October, 2008

Indeed.
 
Posted by MJK 5th October, 2008

Wow, this is great news! PC Gamer is not just any magazine out there...great achievement, Hempuli.
