Imagine Publishing is pleased to announce that Retrogamer.net, the user-generated companion website for Retro Gamer magazine, has exceeded 1,000 classic game profiles uploaded by its registered users in just three months.
Retro Gamer’s community website enables its loyal readership to give their own opinions on some of the best (and worst) games ever made, and covers a host of different consoles from the ZX81 to the Sega Dreamcast. The site has already proven to be an excellent resource for readers, giving them a valuable insight into long-forgotten gaming gems.
Retrogamer.net offers a level of interactivity that few other retro websites are able to match. Members can rate their favourite profiles, leave comments on any featured title, and even add new game profiles of their own. Other exciting online elements include the daily blog, bustling forum, and an eBay-fuelled Bargain Hunt buyers’ guide, helping users to search for all the best retro bargains. These popular features ensure that the impressive community at Retrogamer.net continues to grow at an alarming rate.
“With so many dedicated retro websites around, we wanted to ensure that Retrogamer.net was as unique and as individual as the magazine it is based on,” commented Editor Darran Jones.“I’ve always been proud of how loyal and supportive our readership has been over the past three years, and the rapid growth of this exciting new website easily proves this. The fact that we have now received over 1,000 profiles in just three months is a testament to the popularity and strength of the Retro Gamer brand.”
