Game Land was a Russian video game distributor and chain of retail game stores, known for producing and publishing the magazine Strana Igr.

Company

Operating in former Soviet Union countries, Game Land imported hardware and software from Japan and the United States, as well as peripherals and accessories from third-party European manufacturers such as Bitman, Buka and R-Style. The company distributed and sold the Sega Mega Drive, Game Gear, Mega-CD, Sega Genesis CDX, Sega 32X, Saturn, and Pico in Russia, along with other video game systems. Products were available either through their mail-order service Game Land Express, or through one of its retail stores. Additionally, the company operated an American storefront in New York, New York.

Game Land also supported the Russian game magazine Tricks, and later published a magazine of their own, Strana Igr.

In 1998, the 1998 Russian financial crisis resulted in the company closing all their retail stores and migrating their business to an online-only model.
