About Grab It

Grab It Magazine is a triple-A, digital video games publication created to the standards met by its founder, Chris Stead, on his previous publications, including Game Informer, Official PlayStation and GamePro magazines. It will be presented natively in the digital format, using the medium’s strengths to deepen the reader experience and their connection to the games. Grab It Magazine is in itself an entertaining experience, but it also provides opinion, information and a direct channel to point-of-sale on all of the games showcased in each issue.

Grab It Magazine is an independent magazine, with a team of 20 handpicked staff. We work out of Sydney Australia, but consider ourselves to be an international outlet, welcoming to, and enjoyed by, gamers across the globe. We don’t take sides – gender, religion, age or otherwise.

Our readers are looking for new games to discover and enjoy through their technology. They range from triple-A console gamers excited by the creativity in the downloadable space, to the super casuals looking for someothing more than Bejeweled. Grab It Magazine targets that middle ground: people searching for something different, better and creative.

The magazine will launch as a monthly publication focused on iOS, with aspirations of expanding and diversifying quickly into the future. For more info, check out the FAQ


Grab It Magazine aspires to push the concept of a digital publication to its limits and, in doing so, paint the truest picture possible of a gaming experience – to capture its atmosphere.

This is acheived through our experienced team of writers:

Grant Fois

Grant has been as avid gamer for as long as he can remember. A relative newcomer to the world of video game journalism, Grant’s academic background is the ace up his sleeve when it comes to looking at gaming through an analytical eye.
