Indie superpowers combine

Huge news today! Starting this summer Destructoid will be publishing a digital magazine with GameFan. It's a 60-page whopper that's half Destructoid on one side, half GameFan on the other but all indie, all enthusiast, all passion. Existing Huge Members of Destructoid will get a digital download code to enjoy it on their smartphones and tablets days before it's available anywhere else, and some of that exclusive content will of course leak to our homepage down the line. What's also unique is that community comments, blogs, and forums from our site may be selected to grace these pages. Gardevoir all the things.

We're currently getting a bunch of software setup and have a few more surprises in store, but in the meantime check out the official release going out today! Stay tuned...

GameFan Magazine & Destructoid
Join Forces for Content & Strategic Partnership

Two of the video game world's leading indie publications team up 
for editorial projects & more.

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., May 4, 2015 - GameFan magazine today announced an extensive content and strategic partnership with leading video game site Destructoid (destructoid.com).

 

It is a move that focuses on growing and delivering more digital and print editorial to both publications' reader-communities, co-promotion activities, reader/subscriber benefits, and more.

 

Initial plans include the addition of Destructoid-produced content into future digital and print issues of GameFan. The new dual-cover, flip-formatted piece will essentially contain two magazines in one. In addition to GameFan's distinctive visual and editorial mix, readers will receive 30 pages of original Destructoid content, created exclusively for the print and digital magazine format.

 

Free digital subscriptions for the new publication will be available via prominent placement on theDestructoid website. GameFan subscribers will also receive it as part of their subscriptions.

 

Niero Gonzalez, the CEO and co-founder of Destructoid, said, "I grew up reading GameFan, dreaming that one day I'd work in the video game business. This is a surreal personal victory for me, an incredible milestone for Destructoid, and a Voltron moment for lovers of the video gamepress."

 

GameFan Publisher and Editor Dave Halverson added, "This is a partnership born of a mutual love for video games, video game culture, and a deep respect for our readers and fans. What GameFan is to print, Destructoid is to the web. It's a perfect match."
