Free Games with Prime

Post by Blackhawk » Wed Mar 14, 2018 5:16 pm

Amazon just announced that Twitch Prime members will be receiving a set of free games, ala PS+/XBox Live, every month.
We’re celebrating the incredible community response to the Twitch Prime Indie Amplifier program and welcoming all of our new members with the introduction of Free Games with Prime, a brand new program that upgrades your membership by giving you a collection of free games every month starting this Thursday, March 15th.
So, starting tomorrow, you'll get:

· Superhot
· Shadow Tactics
· Tales from Candlekeep: Tomb of Annihilation
· Oxenfree
· Mr. Shifty

And Twitch Prime is free if you have Amazon Prime.

Nobody tell JetFred about a source for even more games. :ninja:

I have the Twitch desktop app and still can't figure out to get these for free. For instance, Tales from Candlekeep is showing up on Twitch as $34.99 (or whatever). Any links to the specific page?

It may not be updated. All I'm seeing is Devil May Cry HD. Everything else is in-game loot (Fortnite, COD WWII) or videos.

Used desktop browser, there's a "Prime Loot" button on top.

Odd, I can claim Prime loot on the site, but not on the desktop app.

Yeah, it's out of control. Battle.net as well. I had to create a note in Evernote just to keep up with which games were in which non-Steam game app. It's a mess.

eh, I was hoping it would be a download from Amazon and not another app to install on my computer.

I can't wait to accidentally re-buy some of these games on a different platform.

This is why all of my games are recorded on a master list. It's a spreadsheet with game names, setting, genre, sub-genre, and what service I have it on. It's got a sheet for each type of device I game on.
