To Juiced.GS subscribers' surprise, the December issue included a 3.5" floppy disk with a free copy of the completed game!
Brutal Deluxe approached Juiced.GS publisher Gamebits last summer about a partnership. The French programming duo had updated Les Passagers du vent with new graphics, sound, and multilingual support — and they wanted to make the result available exclusively to Juiced.GS subscribers. We were delighted to collaborate with Brutal Deluxe, with assistance from David Schmidt of RetroFloppy, to bring this game to our readers in physical form!
This issue features a look back at Infogrames' unreleased Apple IIGS game Les Passagers du Vent (Passengers on the Wind); a review of Attack of the PETSCII Robots; a roundup of Apple II YouTube and Twitch channels; a review of emulators released and updated in 2021; a tribute to Tony Diaz — and much, much more!
Computers run on ones and zeroes, but good writing is built on the rule of threes — and Juiced.GS is no exception. In our history, we've had three editors, three associate editors, and three publishers. From 2007 to 2013, we tripled our number of subscribers; from 2012–2019 was another triplication; and 2013 to 2021, we have three times as many readers again. And next year, we're going to take the first three powers of three — 30, 31, and 32 — and multiply them together to get 27: the 27th year of publication of the world's longest-running Apple II magazine!
That's right: Juiced.GS will continue to print throughout 2022! New subscribers can sign up today for a subscription starting immediately or in 2022 at our same great prices: $20 in the United States, $25 in Canada & Mexico, and $28 everywhere else. Existing subscriptions will automatically renew on January 1, 2022, also at these rates. Subscription status can be confirmed by logging into your account in the Juiced.GS online store.
To celebrate our longevity, we're offering three sales throughout the month of July and while supplies last: first-time subscribers who sign up for a 2021 subscription will get a bonus copy of our 100th issue from December 2020. That's five issues for the price of four!
The PDF editions of our back issue bundles of volumes 1–10 and volumes 11–20 are each 20% off. $64 will get you 10 years, 40 issues, and over 800 pages of Apple II reviews, interviews, and how-tos.
This issue features an inside look at the Apple II emulated in Joshua Weier's Unreal game, zero_page; a tutorial for using ham radio with your Apple II; reviews of the ROMX and MacEffects' transparent case; an Apple II podcast roundup; the continuing adventures of Detective Pomme and Colonel Hexings; and much, much more!
