UGSMAG is Back

Welcome to the latest incarnation of ugsmag, a new design and format. We decided to scrap the “issue” format that we’ve had for the last few years in order to bring you new content in a more timely matter. You can expect new articles every week, as well as a daily news feed. Also, in the next couple of weeks we’ll be adding more new elements and features to the site, including a brand new and improved ugsmag forum.
