If Game Mag Weaseling's hiatus has left your heart wanting, here's a link about unusual (and foreign -- a bonus!) video game magazines that might help fill that gap in your life: HG101 has a piece covering the history of such publications in Croatia.

The article discusses Croatia's first video game magazine Hacker, which debuted in 1994 and managed to stay alive for a little over a decade, as well as periodicals like Chaos, PlayZone, the recently shuttered GamePlay, and its successor Next Level.

HG101 also talks a bit about Croatian developers that have sprung up, like Croteam (Serious Sam), Cateia Games (Star Trek - The Neutral Zone), , and others. It's all very interesting stuff if you're unfamiliar with the region and its game community.
