Flushed: a zine about toilet gaming ⊟
It’s an unavoidable truth of the handheld gaming hobby: someone is playing DS/3DS/Vita/etc. on the toilet. I don’t want to hear about real people doing it, but I will happily read articles in a zine that I can pretend are 100% fictional accounts of hypothetical toilet gaming.
And that’s Flushed: an e-zine edited by Lana Polansky, Samantha Allen and Elizabeth Simins (who created the cover above) “exploring the beautiful intersection of videogames and toilets.”
You can get the zine at Gumroad for whatever price you’re willing to pay, and then read it anywhere. Even THERE, I guess. I guess.

New Animal Crossing: New Leaf art anthology ⊟

These two pieces (by e1n and rockets?) come from Artisan Ordinance, a 38-page anthology collecting Animal Crossing artwork from more than a dozen artists. It’s a pretty expensive book, priced at $20, but the art I’ve seen for it so far looks great.

If you have a zine or anything else you think we’d be interested in, don’t forget to let us know!

PokeStory zine needs contributors, your attention ⊟
Here’s a pretty cool project promising “stories of exploration and discoveries in the Pokemon World.” The zine focuses on original/non-canon trainers, which put me off at first, but I’m told that this approach gives creators free reign to “interpret the characters as passages in their own experiences in the games.” It already has a long list of contributors, but organizers will accept applications from artists and writers until the end of the month.
PokeStory will release as a free PDF. There’s also a Pokemon X/Y giveaway going on at the project’s Tumblr if you want to score a free copy — I stole and butchered this GIF from the contest post.

Ashley Davis curating Kirby’s Dream Zine
The artist responsible for Earth’s cutest drawings is putting together a zine about Dream Land’s cutest pink sphere. Ashley Davis is accepting submissions for Kirby’s Dream Zine until August 31.

You can draw or write about any of your favorite Kirby characters, moments and memories! If it’s Kirby related, it fits. Yes, you can even do something about Escargoon. In fact, I encourage it.

Find full guidelines and submission instructions at Ashley’s site. I’ll just be here thinking. I always, always want to contribute to projects like these, but I never do because everyone involved is an amazing artist or writer and I’m just some guy. Like, what am I going to do.

Scroll #10 is out, and the covers are gorge

If you backed the Kickstarter for this zine issue, you probably already knew this was out, and got the special edition/fishing cover. The rest of you plebes can now buy Scroll #10 online as a PDF ($5) or print magazine ($14) with the standard bug net cover — both of the wistful designs are from Jacob Smiley.

As mentioned previously, this 60-page issue primarily examines charming cult game series Boku no Natsuyasumi/My Summer Vacation, and includes a rare profile/interview with the franchise’s creator Kaz Ayabe. It also looks at Ayabe’s newest game, upcoming eShop title Attack of the Friday Monsters, along with other topics.

Pond Smelt: Animal Crossing doujinshi from Jane Mai

Awesome artist Jane Mai has a very promising “Animal Crossy" book on the way, if you’re into imagining lives and experiences with your New Leaf neighbors beyond the confines of the game’s scripted dialogue.

It’s published by Peow Studio and will ship early July. You can preorder Pond Smelt online for 100 Swedish krona, which I’m told is around $15 (shipping worldwide included) — expensive, but I can already tell from these preview pages that this book right here, right now, right here, this is my shit. Plus it comes with a “special surprise present.”

You can also check out some of Jane’s comics online for free here, and buy more of her excellent zines here.

Oh, and have I mentioned yet that wolves (especially those that are named Fang) are the best Animal Crossing neighbors?

Cool - Fuzzheads

“Cool” by Fuzzheads

Here’s sneak peek for one of the chiptune contributions from the Ultranimboy handheld/chiptune zine we linked yesterday, a track that also happens to come from one of my favorite chiptune bands, Fuzzheads.

It’s a nostalgia-filled collab with Meekstape (see Game Boy cart design), who has contributed to a bunch of zines AND ALSO has her art featured as a graffiti soul in Jet Set Radio: HD.

Caldera

Andrew Reyes put together a zine made up of 3D photos taken with a Nintendo 3DS:

“These photos are 3D containers for time and space. My travels and my friends are what fills these containers.”

Each hand-sewn $7 copy comes with a pair of 3D glasses. I love this!
