Amazon Prime Day may be over, but there's one often-overlooked perk that Prime members can still get at no cost: Twitch Prime's free PC games, which are available to claim now through July 31. And once you claim them, the games are yours to keep. July's offering of games is very good--here's a look at what's available now.
--Yooka-Laylee is a Banjo-Kazooie-inspired platformer where you hunt for collectibles, solve puzzles, defeat enemies, and more, all while playing as Yooka the chameleon and Laylee the bat. The duo is searching for "Pagies," pages of their magical golden book that is stolen at the beginning of the game.
--Cultist Simulator is what it sounds like--a game where every action you take will influence others and possible generate a cult-like following. Gameplay-wise, Cultist Simulator is a roguelike narrative card game where the cards you play determine your actions, attributes, emotions, wealth, items, and more. With a 1920s-themed setting and plenty of secrets, Cultist Simulator has no tutorial--it's best to just dive in and experience it for yourself.
--The Escapists is also free this month--the top-down strategy game places you in the role of a prisoner aiming to break out of various prisoner (there are six total, plus additional DLC prisons). The game is a sandbox experience, allowing you to get creative with how you plan your escape, whether that's by digging a tunnel, organizing a riot, stealing a guard uniform, or some other clever tactic.
--For the King is a single-player or multiplayer RPG with turn-based combat that pulls from multiple genres, such as tabletop and roguelike adventure. The game begins with the death of the king, which inspires citizens of the kingdom (such as yourself) to rise up and oust enemies from their homeland. You can control your own party or partner with up to three people online, or you can set off on your own, fighting monsters, exploring new locations, braving the elements, and more.
Twitch Prime also offers free in-game loot and other random benefits on a regular basis. You can currently get free loot drops in games like League of Legends, The Division 2, and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 just by claiming them through Twitch. Plus--and this is perhaps one of its best offers--Twitch Prime is giving away 12 months of Nintendo Switch Online for totally free. Finally, Twitch Prime is offering even more freebies and perks for members this month, including free Apex Legends skins and FIFA 19 content.
As a reminder, to claim all these free games, loot, and services, you have to link your Amazon account to your Twitch account; that'll unlock all of Twitch Prime's benefits. You can always sign up for an Amazon Prime 30-day free trial if you're not already a member and want to try out Prime. After the 30-day trial, an annual Prime membership costs $119 / £79 a year (or $59 / £39 a year if you're eligible for Prime Student).
