Adventure Probe
Magazine Archive

Under the stewardships of editors Sandra Sharkey, Pat Winstanley, Mandy Rodrigues and Barbara Gibb, Adventure Probe was undoubtely the glue holding the UK homegrown adventure community together.

Released on either a bi-monthly or monthly schedule this A5 magazine (usually consisting of 50-60 photocopied pages), ran for an impressive twenty-one years between 1986 and 2007; at its height reaching over 500 subscribers.

Covering all 8-bit and 16-bit machines, and later PC gaming, the magazine featured news, reviews, articles, hints & tips, and an extremely lively letters section.

Adventure Probe spawned both its own software label and the long running 'The Adventurer's Convention' in the UK.
