ONM Remembered – #182

“Not content with inspiring a chocolate biscuit, the penguin has powers too.”

from Official Nintendo Magazine issue 58 (July 1997)

A huge preview for Space Station Silicon Valley, stuffed full of info, screenshots, and some really neat concept art. As the first issue of ONM I ever picked up, seeing a huge, colourful preview like this was genuinely enticing, and captivating features like this were darn near the sole reason to pick up the magazine.

As intrigued as I was, it seemed to take an eternity for this game to arrive on shelves – it took a year and a quarter from this preview to release, but actually finding it in a store was really hard. For all the time I spent entranced by these pages, I never got to play it. No chance of rerelease, then?
