MIRRORS a new game from EDGE

With its tag line of “prepare to be amazed”, we’ve spent the last few months since the games announcement doing just that. We’ve pondered what type of game this might be, RPG, Puzzle, Racing, Shoot ‘em up! There’s only so much amazing preparation one can handle.

Just as our luck would have it, a few days back Edge Games launched their Edge Store, where frenzied internet goers from all round the world could join up and purchase Edge Published titles, the list is long, but I’ll try to quickly list it:

  1. Mythora – A Title first published under the name The Banished by Frontline Studios in 2006
  2. Bobby Bearing – First published in 1986, before reappearing on the mobile platform in 2003. The game only works on obsolete Nokia Series 60/S60.
  3. Battlepods – Only works on obsolete Nokia Series 60/S60.
  4. Pengu – Only works on obsolete Nokia Series 60/S60

But the games to purchase wasn’t the only available offering on the store, there was also the wonderful chance to pre-order up and coming titles such as MIRRORS!

The Pre-order page revealed some juicy information:

  • The platforms – PC, PS3, Wii, 360
  • The developer – Edge. Nice to know that they’re handling such an important development in house
  • Genre – Action – WOW
  • Release date 2009/2010! That could be next week!, or it could be about 15 months away!

The biggest news of all though was the box shot. Yes the image might have been small, but looking into it revealed some wonderful information.

In the letterbox we see some sort of space marine warrior, a futuristic human of sorts. This is helps a little, but it would be much better to see the full image… Wouldn’t it?

Our sleuths dug deep and like always brought in the goodies. Here’s the full image from MIRRORS.

Actually, it’s not. It is the full image as you can tell. But it’s not from MIRRORS a new game from EDGE. It’s actually the work of Mikeg8807, published as SPACE MARINE on his Deviantart webspace in Feb 2008. Incidentally if you google image search SPACE MARINE you should find Mike’s work on the first or second page. Also if you google Mirrors Edge you get a completely different game, how strange.

Mike was contacted by Chaos Edge to see if he could bring some inside info on what MIRRORS might be:

I definitely didn’t give anyone permission to use my artwork. Looks like a pretty shady website in general.

I’d probably be more upset if I thought he would be making money off using my work, but judging by the website it doesn’t look like that will be a problem.

Thanks for looking into that for me, I’ll send the guy an email and tell him to take it down. If there’s anything else you need/find, let me know.

Thanks again!

So there’s the inside scoop on what MIRRORS might bring to us in the coming future.

UPDATE:

As if by magic…

The Box image changes

Sadly though, Edge Games aren’t as thorough as they think they are:

Someone forgot to change the image on the order page.

Maybe they need some help in basic web site creation…

Well, we’re not a bad bunch of people here:

Replace the file ‘MirrorsM.jpeg’ Tim, you haven’t updated that one since the 1st of September.

ChaosEdge, here to help with your web woes and internet itches. There’s nothing that we can’t scratch.

    oh and btw look at the order page, he changed the box for the “Mirrors” game too.

    How amazing is that ?

    Too bad people can take screenshots, changing your site won’t do much Tim. :)

    Haha… they must have a pretty strong concept for this game…

    Can Tim patent the art of stealing pictures from the Internet?

    • September 12, 2009 at 8:11 pm

      I can’t believe it. I am left without words. What is this guy thinking? Can’t he just pay some artists to do the artwork for a pathetic box cover?

      This is the lowest level a ‘developer’ could ever arrive to.
