A Note to Publishers and Content Owners
This site is set up to digitally preserve video game magazines from 1999 and earlier for current magazines. The rules for defunct magazines vary on a case-by-case basis. We do this because issues of these magazines are not readily available from publishers/content owners. While we donít have legal permission, we operate in a way where we do not release anything that will reduce any potential income for you, or magazines that are available from you, nor do we release scans that are of a quality that may reflect poorly on you. So far this has worked, with several publishers/content owners basically ignoring our existence. However, if you wish that we do not make content that you legally have ownership available on this site, just let us know and we will remove it. While we would prefer permission, we will fully oblige with your wishes concerning your content. This is a hobby we do out of passion and love for the video game magazines of yesterday, and not worth legal battles of any kind.

Retromags Switching Servers

March 12th-13th 2015


With our server fully funded, Retromags will be switching over to our new dedicated server this Thursday, March 12th 2015. Around 7PM Eastern USA time n Thursday I will put this site into an offline state and move us over. The entire move should only take me approximately 2-3 hours, but the DNS changes may take a bit longer to propagate thru the Internet. You can keep up to date with our progress by visiting our Facebook or Twitter page. Once the site is moved, if your ISP has not yet updated their DNS records, you can change your DNS server to Google (they are usually very fast on changes).
