Coverdisk Archive – PC Format

Posted on October 5th, 2016

PC Format ran in the UK from 1991 to 2015 and was published by Future Publishing. It was a great magazine (ignoring the late 90s “lad mag” period… what were they thinking!) and really got me into the PC. The very first issue I bought had a tutorial on C programming from none other than Peter Molyneux using the Syndicate source code.

You can find more information at magazinesfromthepast.wikia.com/wiki/PC_Format and oldgamemags.com/pc-format/.

Don’t forget to check out the other magazine coverdisk archives.
