Kickstarter Launches for ‘Unwinnable Weekly’ Digital Magazine

Gaming site Unwinnable has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund a weekly digital magazine featuring excellent and insightful writing from its list of excellent contributors. You can get a sample here (PDF), but Unwinnable promises that future issues of the weekly digital magazine will feature the best games and culture criticism from the all-star voices that have made Unwinnable great over the last four years.

Those writers include Stu Horvath, Gus Mastrapa, Jenn Frank, Cara Ellison, Matt Marrone, Brendan Keogh, Richard Clark, Chris Dahlen, Brian Taylor, Kris Ligman, Jill Scharr, Sam Machkovech, Ian Gonzales, Steve Haske, Joe DeMartino, L. Rhodes, J.P. Grant, and many more.

Unwinnable is looking to raise $35,000 to get the weekly digital magazine off the ground. How will the money be spent? Here's what they say they will use it for:

"$35,000 represents one year of bare bones production costs (plus shipping costs for the Kickstarter rewards, natch). This will ensure that all of our volunteers, from editors to writers to artists, get modest reimbursement for their thoughts and labors," the publication writes on its Kickstarter page. "Every penny raised over our initial goal goes to making Unwinnable even better."
