What we are about
Northern Touch is a small quarterly magazine publication based in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. We specialize in publishing “intellectual" articles about video games and the video game industry. By intellectual, we mean articles that attempt to articulate the philosophical impact video games have and will have on human society.
It is without a doubt that video games have come a long way since its birth in the early eighties--as such, we believe this phenomena cannot be overlooked in its influence upon society. With the advances of technology, many new issues and ideas emerge that challenge intellects to re-evaluate their perspective on the world. These issue range in scope and scale and often draw upon many different intellectual discipline.
We strive to find minds that seek to articulate their thoughts about video games. And we are not talking about your raves and reviews of different titles but rather, the deeper questions of video games; whether we can create a real virtual world, or whether morals have a basis for video games, Northern Touch attempts to put all these issues into perspective.
