Sponsor Spotlight – Component Magazine

By | April 21, 2015

Component Magazine - Issue 1 CoverIf you’ve been following U-Pick on Twitter (which you should, we’re great) , you may have noticed a big announcement about a gaming magazine called Component. This shiny, new publication comes from one of our very own U-Pick Crew members, and features a collection of essays and artwork on the subject of video games. Component is available as a print-on-demand magazine through Blurb and as an instant PDF, sold directly through the Component website.

Just like the U-Pick Crew, the editor and contributors of Component thoroughly believe in gaming for good causes. As a result, 100% of the profits from Component will be donated to the fundraisers of the U-Pick Video Game Marathon for Charity.

The first issue is filled with stories about the contributors’ most cherished games. Some are first encounters where a lasting bond was established. Others are tales of transition, where these beloved games have stood by their side as a supportive medium. All of them reflect the wonder that can be found in moments of play and through them we share the happiness of a cherished hobby.

Games highlighted in the articles and artwork of Issue One include: Mega Man 2, Super Mario 64, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Metal Gear: Solid, Spyro the Dragon, Sid Meier’s Alpha Centauri, Pokémon: Yellow Version, Halo: Combat Evolved, and Okami.

Component will be released semi-annually, and the second issue has a tentative release of December 2015. Please be sure to follow Chip, the editor of Component, on Twitter (@gimmgp) for news about the magazine and related video game musings. You can also check out the Component Blog page for updates and other works from the brilliant and creative contributors.
