Escapist Magazine Update – New Website Design

state of escapist magazine - nick calandra and sam nelson

Hey everyone,

We just finished some scheduled updates and now have a new look for Escapist Magazine. This new look should be much easier to navigate, more readable, loads faster, and much more responsive on mobile devices.

Please have a look around and let us know what you think. We still have some minor issues to hammer out, but everything should mostly be in working order.

Some known issues are that comment counts are not correctly updating on article previews and the counter on article pages, some thumbnails are incorrectly sized on the homepage and category pages, and some ads haven’t appeared yet on the home page to help split up content sections.

We are planning on providing the forums with a facelift soon as well, but we have no details to provide on that at this time.

If you find other issues or have suggestions, please let us know.

Hope you enjoy the new look.
