Game.EXE was published by Компьютерра (Computerra) and is a direct continuation of the preceding magazine, Магазин Игрушек (Toy Shop), which published 14 issues (though a few issues were given two issue numbers, so those 14 issues are officially issues 1-17) before changing its name to Game.EXE beginning with issue 18 in January 1997. It was published monthly until its cancellation in 2006, with the final four issues all published in June.
