IE Interactive Entertainment was a multimedia CD ROM magazine founded by Yale Brozen with Steve Scivally. After the first prototype issue zero, the first issue was released May, 1994. The CD magazine went on for about 25 or so issues. The CD's had previews, reviews, tips, etc, all in video/voice format. Many of the reviewers were pretty funny, and had some good banter back and forth, especially in the reviews when they disagreed.
Near the end the CD Magazine was merged with Computer Games Strategy Plus Magazine, where the computer magazine became the packaging for the CD.
The problem with the 'CD ROM magazine' was the cost of shipping it out. It wasn't the actual CD, but the packaging for the CD that was too expensive. So it got stripped down and made the demo disk for S+, and the magazine became the packaging.
