So Twitch has been partnered with Amazon for a while for a Twitch Prime service. You can subscribe to it separately, or if you're an Amazon Prime member, it's a free benefit. One of the benefits of this service in the past few months has been the ability to claim, download and play games off the Twitch client.

Well, if you haven't signed up before (particularly if you have Amazon Prime), this month is a great time to do so as they're doing a "game a day" promotion. Many are indies but there are a couple of heavy hitters in there, such as available through the 4th, Pillars of Eternity: Definitive Edition (aka with all the DLC)

The rest of this month's schedule:
3-9 July — Q.U.B.E. 2
3 July – 2 August — SNK Bundle featuring Metal Slug 3, The Last Blade, and Twinkle Star Sprites
4-10 July — Battle Chef Brigade
5-11 July — Manual Samuel
6-12 July — GoNNER
7-13 July — Next Up Hero
8-14 July — Uurnong Uurnlimited
9-15 July — Hue
10-16 July — Deponia Doomsday
11-17 July — Observer
12-18 July — Tacoma
13-26 July — The Bridge
14-27 July — Brutal Legend
15-21 July — The Red Strings Club
16-17 July — Tyranny
17-31 July — Broken Age
18-31 July — FRAMED Collection
18-31 July — Serial Cleaner

Two things I have heard, btw:

  1. You CAN get a 1 month trial of Amazon Prime and get Twitch Prime from that. They'll charge $1 to your credit card but return it. Just make sure to cancel before the trial ends.

  2. Once you download the games, they're DRM free. You may still be able to download games you've claimed from the Twitch client afterwards.

So this might be a good month to do a trial. ;)

Wow, that's actually a pretty nice list of free games if you're already a Prime subscriber. I should explore some of the other Prime benefits, I basically just use the shipping haha (though we buy practically everything aside from perishables from Amazon at this point). I wish they would partner with GOG or something (since they're DRM free) because I can't keep track of all these clients I loaded up Far Cry 4 the other day for the first time and forgot I had to have UPlay...on top of Steam.

By the by, unless we have any issues with games of the same name like we did with PS Plus recently, all of the games are in the database already except for the FRAMED Collection, which is almost certainly this: https://store.steampowered.com/app/322450/FRAMED_Collection/

So apparently, outside of last month's bonanza, the 5 free games a month with Twitch Prime thing is going to be standard for now. Here's the August selection:

Antihero
Death Squared
Jotun: Valhalla Edition
SteamWorld Dig
Wizardry Bundle (featuring Wizardry 6, 7, and 8)

Antihero will be the only new one for me. Jotun was given away free with no memberships required on both Steam and GOG a few months back. Death Squared was in Xbox Live Games With Gold for this month. SteamWorld Dig was in a ton of bundles and I picked up the Wizardry Bundle somewhere. But after last month, it's not like I'm asking a lot from a service that's essentially free anyway with how useful Amazon Prime is.

Moho: All these games are in the database already.

Moho note: Star Vikings is in the database. Star Vikings Forever is not. I'm not sure what the relationship between the two is.

Hmm...as far as I can tell, Star Vikings was renamed to Star Vikings Forever. I ended up just updating our existing entry accordingly.
