Free UK magazine ShortList is celebrating a gaming first this morning.
Today’s issue features what editor Martin Robinson describes as “the world’s first playable gaming cover”.
Using augmented reality app Blippar, the cover can be turned – or ‘blipped’ – into a playable version of ‘80s title Chuckie Egg.
There’s other interactive gaming coverage inside, too, including access to Grand Theft Auto V and Tomb Raider trailers as well as an interactive Assassin’s Creed III photography game.
ShortList editor Martin Robinson stated: “We’d been planning a gaming special for ShortList which celebrated retro games as well as new releases, and thought it would make for an exciting magazine first if people could somehow ‘play’ our cover.”
