Kinetic 7 is a brand new, free-to-download gaming magazine. Issue 1 is now online for your reading pleasure.

From the announcement:

Focusing on skirmish games and the creative sides of the miniature gaming hobby, Kinetic 7 announced that their new digital download magazine launched its first issue and a new website today.

The staff, based all over the world, consists of experienced gamers, miniature painters and sculptors. Claiming that “we wanted to create a magazine that we would like to read ourselves,” the digital magazine is slated to come out 6 times per year.

In addition to articles and guides, the magazine also promises interviews with known industry artists and personalities, tutorials and painting competitions.

The premiere issue contains features of studio painters from both the Infinity line and Coolminiornot, articles about painting miniatures, and tutorials about creating scenery and sculpting. Readers will also get a closer look at the two skirmish games, Alkemy and 1650.

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    Very, very nice. It reminds me of Rackham’s Cry Havok! a bit, which is high praise. It’s great to have this kind of coverage across the whole genre of skirmish gaming. Your site is bookmarked!

    Thank you! We really appreciate the warm response the magazine has gotten! If there is something you want to see in the future please don’t hesitate to drop us an email. I think all this positive feedback has energized the team so maybe we can bring the next issue out faster 😉

    Enjoyed this thoroughly. Unfortunately, I can’t get it to open in iBooks on my iPad to save.

    • Mananarepublic

      That is really weird – that is how I read it. What version of iPad and iBooks do you have?


  • Nosaj Verush

    iPad 1 and updated iBooks. It presents a button to open in iBooks and when I press it nothing happens. But, I was able to read it just fine, just can’t save it. Really enjoyed it! Happy to see Alkemy is alive and appreciated somewhere.

    • Mananarepublic

      I double checked, it should be working. I get a little pause between the iPad showing the iBook shelf and the mag opening (probably because it is 40 MB.)

      Send me an email at [email protected] if you got time and I will try to figure this out with you.
