It's been a little while since we last had A Profound Waste of Time in stock at the magCulture shop but here it is; the long awaited second issue reprinted thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign.

It's a beautifully put together publication: colourful, chunky and brimming with childlike wonder.
Featured in this issue are games creators Keita Takahashi, Tetsuya Mizuguchi and Team Cherry as well as a photo essay on Tokyo featuring locations which inspired Liam Wong's game locations. Plus!
