Anuman Interactive announced their acquisition of two major French video gaming magazines today. Joystick and Tilt have both been published and sold in France and other French speaking nations since the 1980s. Their parent company MER7 was recently liquidated forcing Joystick and Tilt to cease publication in November of 2012. Stéphane Longeard, CEO of Anuman Interactive explains “As players, we are necessarily attached to those two magazines. In a near future, we are willing to make “Joystick” and “Tilt” come alive again under new forms that will remind something to all those who have lived video games through those mythical magazines”.
Anuman Interactive has not announced their plans for the two magazines, promising more information in the second quarter of 2013.
