When the GIA closed on April 1, 2002, gamers around the world first thought it was an April Fools' joke. Then they thought it was the end of a revolutionary time on the Internet, where gamers could get... uh... Intelligent Gaming news... from an Agency. Yeah.

But with closer inspection, they found that they were yet again wrong, as most of the GIA's staff had been working on a more professional approach to gaming news, through Gameforms, a new site that opened on May 1, 2002.

Actually, conforming to the casualty on the Internet, they were a day late, but that's not the point.

Gameforms, headed by Andrew Kaufmann, promises to be the new Internet leader of news for RPG, puzzle, music and other thought-inducing games. Their ominous motto is: "Art forms. Life forms. Gameforms."
