If you like checking out new, creative indie games on PC--and especially like it when they're free--then you'll want to keep an eye Amazon Prime's monthly game giveaways for Twitch Prime members. Last month, Twitch Prime members were able to claim four games--Her Story, Inner Space, Joggernauts, and Keep in Mind: Remastered--at no cost, and for May, Amazon is kicking up that number to five games. Take a look at the new freebies below.
First up is Whispering Willows, an indie horror adventure where you play as a young girl named Elena who's searching for her missing father. Elena has a pendant she can use to project her spirit outside her body, travel through walls, and control various objects in the surrounding environment to solve puzzles. Then there's Stealth Bastard Deluxe, which is, as the name implies, a stealth game where you control a clone making his escape from a hazardous testing facility. Also included is The Little Acre, a point-and-click adventure with gorgeous hand-drawn visuals that tells the story of a father and daughter who travel to a strange new world.
Finally, you've got both Majesty: The Fantasy Kingdom Sim and its sequel, Majesty 2. In these real-time strategy games, you play as the sovereign ruler of a fantasy kingdom, where you can construct and enhance buildings, hire heroes to handle various tasks, and offer rewards to gain their cooperation.
In addition to free games, Twitch also offers free in-game loot on a monthly basis. This month, the offers will include free loot for League of Legends, StarCraft II, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, and World of Tanks. Plus, in case you haven't heard: You can get a year of Nintendo Switch Online for free if you're a Prime member.
You have through May 31 to download Twitch's new freebies, and once you do, they're yours to keep. To claim the free games and loot, you have to be an Amazon Prime member and make sure your Amazon account is linked to Twitch. After the free 30-day trial, an Amazon Prime membership costs $119 per year; if you're a student, that price drops to $59 per year.
