Mirage: Arcane Warfare is free for the next 24 hours, and you get to keep it

In search of an oasis.

Poor Mirage: Arcane Warfare. Whether it was the title or the abundance of purple or the characters or the existence of Overwatch or one of a million other factors, it’s hard to deny Mirage was a flop. A big flop, and not just in relation to developer Torn Banner’s previous game Chivalrythe top Steam review was posted August 10 and says there was a total of “just 3 players online.” Ouch.

Torn Banner is trying to stab a big ol’ adrenaline needle into Mirage’s DOA body though. No, the game isn’t going free-to-play—not yet, anyway. It is however going to be free for the next 24 hours, and if you grab it through Steam you get to keep it forever. Via Torn Banner:

Mirage launch sales were poor. That sucked, and we know it. Our company's doing fine, and we'll be able to continue to make awesome games in the future. More than anything, we're disappointed for the players who stuck by us and did buy Mirage - but who have struggled to find people to play against. We just want people to play the game we spent years making. We have faith that Mirage can find a larger audience still, so we’re being aggressive about getting it into people’s hands.”

So yeah, from now until 10 a.m. Pacific on September 7 you can head to Mirage’s Steam page and grab a free copy of the game, no strings attached. And if you’re reading this any time after 10:01 a.m. Pacific on September 7? Torn Banner is permanently dropping the price of the game to $10.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GE63 Raider

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
