Côté Gamers has already published 2 games on Intellivision (many others on ColecoVision, Mega Drive, Atari ST, Dos etc) as well as many books in French. So we have experience in publishing.

We are going to publish a magazine for our ColecoVision club, but as we also like the Intellivision very much, we could publish a magazine about this machine and its universe if enough people were interested. So, would you be?

In principle, yes.

What do you have in mind relative to content, format (physical/electronic), and frequency?

Also price point.

We never sell anything expensive, we always try to make very reasonable prices, sometimes we even sell at cost by passion ^^. Here we will do our best not to ruin the readers of course.

For the pagination, it remains to be defined according to the readership.
It would be a magazine in physical edition (unless everyone prefers a dematerialized version).
For the content we would talk about everything: games, society, news, interviews etc.

I know that I would definitely buy it.

Sounds like a great idea to me!

I think it would be good. But given that Cote Games is in Europe and many of us (most of us) are not, it probably needs to be available in a virtual format (It could also be in physical form).

I loved my Electronic Games mags.  Always looked for Intellivision info, but was still interested in all the consoles.

 

I was actually hoping for an Amico Mag with a CLASSIC CORNER or something that talked about history/upcoming releases from the current Intellivision publishers.

If the CART port gets created, could increase the potential customers.

I'm definitely interested, in whatever format, but preferably in the physical one. Distance won't be a problem.

I would be interested in at least an initial run of the magazine, to see how to goes.  The reason is that, I do not believe there is enough interesting content related to the Intellivision to fill a monthly or even semi-monthly magazine without becoming repetitive, or without resorting to some extraneous padding.

 

However, I am optimistic and would give it a chance, and if your team pulls it off, then it'll be a great asset to our community. :)

We can't say how often the magazine would come out but it wouldn't be monthly since we already edit a lot of books in French and our schedule is busy.

Not sure there is enough content for a monthly magazine and it might make it too pricey if it was monthly.  
 

I suggest doing a biography of the Intellivision platinum club members.  Specifically where exactly they live.  What time they are not in their house and where the blind zones are for their home security systems.  😇

What fellow Canadian of yours should be first? ;)

@tanuki

It seems you getting overwhelmingly positive response to your survey.

What else would need to happen for you to move forward? Would you be looking for any type of support or funding?

We don't need anything in particular ;)
However if some of you want to participate we will be happy to welcome you.
We will push the discussions a little more internally to produce this magazine!
