published by complex 1989-1991

MAGGY was an excellent Finnish disk magazine that was published around 1989-1991. It was the forum of Finnish Amiga demoscene and featured many of the well known scene personalities as writers. Maggy is a legendary piece of Finnish demo scene folklore and must not be missed.

The fun thing in Maggy was that especially during the earlier finnish language issues it had very tongue-in-cheek attitude. The pages were IFF-pictures so people could write & draw, create the article outlook themselves if they wanted. So authors had a free hand to express themselves.
Result was very amusing and fun magazine that was eagerly waited. Unfortunately the magazine lost its best touch when Complex guys wanted to go international.
