We recently launched the first issue of VN Zine, a digital-only zine, made with the goal of connecting & inspiring other visual novel creators and people involved in making them by featuring them in various stories & articles!
We don't necessarily discuss the latest news, or review visual novels, but instead we focus on more general topics that we feel would be relevant to visual novel creators.
In the first issue of VN Zine, we feature articles and stories from six different people: @empodosek, @JKaty133, @parttimestorier, @sasuganick, @steamgirlgame, and @WafflesRtheBest.
The articles in the first issue of the zine cover a wide range of topics, including things such as game jams, kickstarter campaigns, choice design, and technical tools of the trade.
You can find the first issue and all future issues of VN Zine on itch.io here: https://sasquatchii.itch.io/vn-zine-issue-1.
List of Issues:
Issue 1 | March 2020:
Articles: Customizeable Character Tutorial, 20 Tools for VN Devs, Getting Started With Game Jams: Advice for Aspiring Writers, That's the Idea!, Story Grids, Funding Camden, Into the Weeds, Choice Design: 4 Common Choice Types, Meet Katy133, Meet the Writers
Also, within the next few weeks, we will be taking article submissions for the second issue of the zine! Anyone who would like to contribute is welcome to submit an article or idea.
I'd love to hear back from people on potential topics that they'd like to see in future issues! I'm also curious to know if anyone here has any ideas on how to improve the zine, and make it even better.
Any thoughts/ideas/feedback/critique would be much appreciated!

I'm always looking forward for more articles/videos about visual novel development or game design in general, so I think it's a really interesting zine-concept!
Here's my feedback:
+ The layout of the zine is nice-looking
+ I actually wanted to learn how to make customizeable characters so that article was really helpful
+ I like how varied the articles are
- Some of the pictures with code are too tiny. Of course, I can zoom, since it's a digital PDF, but it's not comfortable.
