GAIN is an independent, ad-free print magazine about video games. We want to cover the entire spectrum of video games as a cultural asset, because they are a medium that offers entertainment, but also contains artistic expression, social criticism and political statements. A print magazine must also convince readers of its value – this is why we use the art-size format with an attractive design, a high-quality feel and premium paper.
Statement of the jury
The video game magazine called GAIN has a high-quality look and feel, featuring a clear and well laid out design – all of which makes the publication far more than a compendium of nerdish clichés.
