The issue 4 cover by Greyfox

Go to the current issue (Issue #4 February 2011)

ThorN, ChrisTOS and Simon Sunnyboy decided around Outline 2009 that the disk magazine concept should be transported over to a new platform and concept.

We started the Low Res magazine in Web 2.0 style. It is a WordPress based blog with the following ideas behind the magazine:

  • releases more often, even if there are not 80 articles around
  • cover anything from an Atarian point of view, games, demos, hardware, news
  • Atari systems may have afocus but Low Res will also cover other systems and peek over the edge – just submit us nice articles
  • a Blog system like WordPress allows instant feedback via comments
  • article submissions are way more easy
  • readable even on your Atari ST with CAB or Highwire
  • article reviewing and proof reading can be done online while chatting, Skyping etc (no sharing of article textfiles anymore)

Further down you will find links to the current all past issues and their corresponding articles.

We hope you enjoy the read and if you want to contribute with articles, reviews or anything Atari related, just go ahead and tell us!

The Low Res Logo was done by Greyfox.

We appreciate your feedback!

    Have you ever considered adding more videos to your blog posts to keep the readers more entertained? I mean I just read through the entire article of yours and it was quite good but since I’m more of a visual learner,I found that to be more helpful well let me know how it turns out. This is good…thanks for sharing

      Well retrocomputing per definition is rather visual. Just check the individual articles. Especially in case of Demo reviews there are links to pouet.net where you can find video versions of them in many cases.

      If someone wants to provide useful Video content to us, we will surely consider making use of it as long as it fits the theme of Low Res 🙂 In thatcase it would be a good idea to host at youtube or other video platforms.

    I think it was actually spam SSB. I googled the blog content and it brought back numerous comments with exactly the same content. Anyway, what you wrote is still valid :D.
