#WIP - Work in Progress - 2024 - A monthly digital zine


#WIP is Bloat Games monthly digital-only zine/ newsletter/ catalog/ community forum/ stream of consciousness/ brain-vomit/ whatever.  The idea behind this is to find a way to effectively communicate with our friends and fans (I hate that term) of BG providing them an inside scoop of what’s all going down behind the scenes, the status of upcoming projects, and a place to really get to know the ins and outs of the gaming business, filtered through the view of those doing work for and with BG. 


What this is not?  This is not a high quality, professionally-produced polished gaming product or magazine.  There’s no slick, shiny, or ENnie-worthy stuff here.  Just info, pictures, words, none of which are deeply thought out, plotted, or fully developed.


Why does this cost $2?  Instead of spamming out an email to a bunch of people, who are going to just delete it, I’ve decided to put it on Drivethrurpg.  I plan to do this zine monthly, and treat the $2 paid for it as a yearly subscription.  Essentially, $2 buys you access to 12 zines (1 released each month in 2024).  These zines will be added on or around the 1st of each month to the Drivethrurpg file, so watch for notifications, or check back periodically.  Trust me, $2 is a more than fair price for what you will be receiving.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
