actually appear in a months time!

middle  of  June  for Issue 6 which should
include  all  of  the usual regulars, plus
hopefully  the  questionnaire  results, as
well  as  lots  more  great  games  in the
snapshot package, including the final game
in the Demon From The Darkside series.
If you have any contributions, articles or
cries  for  help  on  your favourite game,
drop us a line here at Emulate.

Look  out  for Issue 6 - out on June 15th!
