Hoax was one of the first diskmags that were released on PC. It issued in 1992-1995. It was made by the Finnish group Epical and its main editor was Kapsu. Most of the issues were downloaded from {scene.org} about 500 times. Hoax works fine on modern PCs even without DOSBox.

Hoax #1

In August 1992 Hoax #1 could be read the first time. It started with an intro featuring rotating vectorgraphics. Inside the
magazine, the menu was displayed on the left and the text of the currently selected article on the right (36 characters per line). The contents were news, articles about various groups, charts (demos, groups, Finnish groups, BBS's, films; 20 voters), Assembly party report, a list of Finnish groups, demo reviews, jokes, an article about how to deal with lamers, a fictional letter of a lamer and some regular columns. The code was done by FCS, the graphics by Kapsu and the music by Blizzard.
