Minus/infinity is the latest issue of Mathew Kumar’s one-man videogame zine, exp., and if Kumar’s name sounds familiar, you may be recalling it from places such as Edge Magazine, Gamasutra, InsertCredit, or just about anywhere significant words have been offered up to videogames online or in print.

As with previous issues, minus/infinity contains several “experimental articles,” which seek to offer a means of conveying the core experience of titles without the traditional trappings of videogame coverage.

This issue of exp. features

– The Misadventures of PB Winterbottom (A title card sequence)
– Nelson Tethers: Puzzle Agent (A puzzle page)
– Alan Wake (A collection of lost lost manuscript pages)
– VVVVVV (A different way of looking at things)
– Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies (A party of friends)
– Patchwork Heroes (A lazy demand) *print exclusive*
– exp.ress Mail (A star letter)

If you noticed the print exclusive snippet on Patchwork Heroes, that’s owing to the fact that a .pdf version of the zine is available for the curious and mobile.

Check it out by visiting this site right here.


  1. I’m not really familiar with Mr. Kumar, however I’d be skeptical (as I’m sure Skeptical Cat would approve) about a guy who chooses to write about Bioshock 2 (which was in all honesty a quick turn around sequel cash grab that added unnecessary multiplayer) in “1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die”. I mean… Bioshock sould get a nod in that… but Bioshock 2? Come on now. Let’s get serious here. Are you talking to me? Are you talking to me?

  2. I haven’t read that book, I won’t ever end up reading it because the idea is too ridiculous to me, so I’m in the dark about any Bioshock shenanigans.

    I do have the previous two issues of exp. though, and I’ve dug the style and personal touch there enough to suggest you check it out. You can totally check the pdf out for free too and see if it’s your bag or not, and then get back here and let me know what you think.

  3. Have the first one but haven’t ordered the others. Guess I can do that now and save a bit on shipping.
