10 Free Games With Twitch Prime

While not the heavy-hitting triple AAA titles like you’d find among the selection of free monthly PlayStation Plus games, they feature some choice indie titles – including a handful from prolific indie publisher Devolver Digital – that are well worth your time.

Here’s the full line-up:

  • Dandara, Anarcute
  • Enter The Gungeon
  • Heave Ho
  • Gato Roboto
  • Witcheye
  • Ape Out
  • Splasher
  • A Normal Lost Phone
  • Kingdom: New Lands.

To grab the free games, all you need to do is sign into Twitch anytime during the month of January. They’ll then be sitting in the “Games” tab on the Twitch desktop app.

You’ll need an Amazon Prime subscription and have it linked to your Twitch account, though. As an added benefit, Amazon-owned Twitch says the games remain yours even if you end your Prime subscription.

Try Amazon Prime for Free

If, like many others, you’ve yet to try out Amazon Prime free for a month, now’s the time. It basically means 10 games for absolutely nothing. You can even send your favorite streamer a free Twitch Prime sub in the process.

Just remember to cancel the Prime subscription before the renewal date to avoid an unwelcome charge.

With Epic’s massive December haul plus the continuation of its free weekly games – as well as any purchases from the Steam Winter Sale, which ended yesterday – the challenge will be finding time to play them all.

Best start chipping away at that backlog before 2020’s big releases like Cyberpunk 2077, The Last of Us Part 2, and Final Fantasy VII arrive.
