Dear Reader,

Welcome to a very normal issue this month. Still some treats and surprises but no theme, just the goods.

This month’s cover feature (cover photo by Stu) is Daryl Li on the Return of the Obra Dinn. Our other feature this month is Andrei Filote on the Path of the Exile. I hope you’ll enjoy reading as much as I did! Reviving our nascent interview series, I talk to our vice publisher, Sara Clemens. Finally, for Epic Games, we have Ben Sailer writing about Unbound: Worlds Apart.

Also, this month, I have a special surprise . . . Re-meet Maddi Chilton! Maddi is taking up a column here and everyone please be sure to say hi! Some of our longest serving readers may remember Maddi from way back in 2017. I sure did!

As for our regular columnists I’d like to bring to you . . . Matt Marrone, continuing his descent into madness. Emily Price, who weaves a brilliant web of media. Justin Reeve, on the indelible nature of trade. Rob Rich, who still loves the Muppets. Levi Rubeck, who is doing a Noah Springer impersonation. Oh hey! Phil Russell is back! Hey Phil, and Phil writes about The Bear. Ben Sailer is here, lamenting a bygone age. Phoenix Simms talks to Javy Gwaltney. Noah Springer, who is doing a Noah Springer impersonation. Alyssa Wejebe on the legacy of one of the most iconic sharks of all time. And, of course, Autumn Wright with a statement of intent.

Stay safe, wear a mask and fight like hell to preserve the right to safe, affordable and equitable abortion services to all who want them! Thank you to all our readers in Kansas for voting!

See you all in a few weeks in Exploits!
