Amazon and Twitch Prime subscribers can grab Day of the Tentacle Remastered for free

Twitch Prime members can grab a no-cost copy of the LucasArts classic.

Given its love of purple, you might think Twitch would be on the side of the evil tentacles. Not so, though—for a limited time you can grab Day of the Tentacle Remastered for free, provided you’re a Twitch Prime (read: Amazon Prime) member.

It’s the latest in a string of freebies from Twitch. The past few months have seen promotions for Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds and Overwatch, plus full games like Breach & Clear, Oxenfree, and Gone Home. A pretty solid track record, all things considered.

The catch, of course, is that Twitch (read: still Amazon) wants you to download and install its proprietary client on your PC, a.k.a. the Twitch Desktop App. No, they’re not just giving away Steam keys. It’s a carbon copy of EA’s tactics with Origin and the On the House program, giving away classic games as long as you’re willing to use something other than Steam.

The first hit’s free, basically.

You'll also need to be an Amazon/Twitch Prime subscriber of course. (Amazon offers a free 30-day Amazon Prime trial if you're not.) To get the game, log into your Twitch account, look for the crown symbol in the upper right corner, scroll down to the Day of the Tentacle Remastered offer, and claim it—or just go here. I highly recommend doing so, as Day of the Tentacle Remastered is pretty much everything you’d want from a remaster—modern graphics and audio with the ability to turn all that off and play the classic LucasArts version of the game. The puzzles can be a pain, but the writing is still excellent.

You’ll have to act fast though—the Day of the Tentacle offer is only good through August 9. Missed it? Don’t fret too much. At the rate Twitch is moving I expect another freebie within weeks.

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.

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.
