Twitch has just announced that it is celebrating the community’s immense response to the Twitch Prime Indie Amplifier program by welcoming new members with free games. The new program will upgrade the membership of Prime users by giving away a collection of free games each month. Twitch is calling this a “levelling-up” of your Twitch Prime accounts.
The games being offered by Twitch are previously released critically acclaimed titles from its archives. The first two games that Twitch is offering are Superhot and Oxenfree. Twitch mentions in its blog that all eight titles from the Indie Amplifier program will be made available for Twitch Prime subscribers over the next few months.
In addition to the aforementioned games, Twitch will also offer titles like Shadow Tactics, and strategy-RPG Tales from Candlekeep: Tomb of Annihilation. Twitch says the rest of the titles will be coming in the following couple of months in no particular order. The 2.5D beat ’em up Mr. Shifty will be available for Twitch Prime members for the first time this month.
Free Games with Prime lineup for the month of April include titles like Tales from the Borderlands, SteamWorld Dig 2, Kingsway, Tokyo 42, and Dubwars.
This isn’t the first time Twitch Prime members have been granted free games. The company has intermittently provided free games in the past, like Devil May Cry HD, which can be downloaded even now. This is the first time a regular scheme has been announced. Players will likely have to download the Twitch Desktop App, which has been the delivery method of the free games previously.
