| Introduction to ReVival
Homebrew on retro consoles
ReVival is published quarterly since the end of 1997. Till now, it was
only available in French through subscription but, given the growing
interest from foreign (to France) readers, we considered an English
version. It is now a reality, with the issue numbered 29, because it is
indeed the 29th issue!
But what is actually ReVival? ReVival wants to be the voice of the
hidden side of video gaming. ReVival gives you news on all alternative
consoles, retrogaming, games and/or hardware tests without concessions,
interviews of people active in the alternative video games (Duranik in
this issue), features such as Nomad for portable consoles and Dreamcast
for Sega's 128 bits. And that's not all! ReVival also offers you
historical articles and more specific reports and columns. And,
furthermore, anyone can participate!
ReVival has no commercial purpose. It is published by a non-profit
association, with professional quality standards in mind, for the
content as well as for the layout. But we are not a publishing company,
and we don't issue thousand copies of ReVival. Furthermore, we have no
advertising. Thus, we cannot offer low prices, since it would endanger
the financial balance of our organization. All the team and myself
dedicate our heart, our passion and our motivation. And it's done
in our spare time! Thus, the more people will participate, the more the
quality of ReVival and the diversity of articles will increase.
That said, thanks to Michael Thomasson of GoodDealGames, for accepting to be our first retailer for the United States. Thanks to George Pelonis of Fury Unlimited.
And thanks to Nick Harlow of 16/32 Systems,
for accepting to be our retailer for the United Kingdom.

English translation, with a more than special mention to Didier Briel.
Enjoy your read. We listen to any comment, suggestion, critic, help, idea. Do not hesitate.
