This hit the stands (of print-to-order service Magcloud) last week, but I have a feeling it hasn't been getting the attention it deserves -- Scroll 03, the newest zine issue from 1UP/Gamepro alum Ray Barnholt, is now out and it's "the cute issue", featuring 80 pages of adorable video games and their characters.

"Four companies -- Taito, Namco, Nintendo and Sega -- created the cutest video games ever made. Through limited technology of the '80s and '90s, they veered away from the stereotypes of gaming and made games that were bright, jolly, and appealed to people of all ages.

And most of them were still pretty challenging, making them hardcore at the same time. In this issue, we catalog 24 games in the "Cute Masterclass," analyzing the how and why of their cuteness, and giving some shout-outs to their understudies, as well."

You can have a print version of the Scroll issue mailed to you for $18, or you can buy a digital/PDF copy for $5. Preview a bunch of pages from the zine or buy it right here.
