A Profound Waste of Time is a magazine that celebrates videogames as an art form. It initiates even the most casual peruser into its fanaticism, drawing the reader in with die-hard dedication and attention to detail. While video games are anything but obscure in today’s world, the voice of APWOT feels wholly unprecedented.


In this issue:


  • Writer and actor Ashly Burch reflects on her performance as Chloe in ‘Life Is Strange’
  • A four-page fold-out Downwell diagram annotated by the game’s creator Ojiro Fumoto
  • After watching his mother play her first videogame, Vlambeer co-founder Rami Ismail explores the idea of games as a language
  • Cover art by renowned illustrator Dan Mumford
