"A magazine representing the people's voice. It was popular among aspiring young journalists. Shut down after Galbadia deemed the publication dangerous."

The Timber Maniacs office at Timber

Timber Maniacs is a publishing company in Final Fantasy VIII. Established 20 years prior to the story of Final Fantasy VIII it publishes many magazines, one of the more famous being Tim Mani (short for Timber Maniacs); a compilation of freelance writings. Under President Deling, Timber Maniacs faced closure when Tim Mani was deemed dangerous to the administration for sparking revolutionist ideals. Since then, Timber Maniacs shifted focus to publishing "battle series" magazines and photobooks such as "Jacket Over Skin: The Beautiful Women Edition".

The door at the far end of the foyer allows access to the Editorial office. To the left of the reception is a small office with a Blizzaga draw point hidden behind the desk in the foreground. In the reception a copy of "Girl Next Door" can be found on one of the magazine stacks next to the receptionist. When given to Zone, you will receive Shiva's Triple Triad card in return.
