Next Free Amazon/Twitch Prime Game Now Available

SteamWorld Heist puts you in command of a crew of steam-powered space pirates.


Twitch Prime members--which includes anyone with an Amazon Prime membership--can get their hands on a free game. SteamWorld Heist is currently available for download right now. You can check out some of the gameplay in the video above.

SteamWorld Heist is a turn-based strategy game where you manually aim the guns of the robots you control, resulting in lots of skill shots and bullet-bouncing. You'll play as Captain Piper, with the goal of recruiting robot pirates to board, loot, and shoot your way through enemy spaceships in the steampunk-inspired world. Along the way, you upgrade your recruits by taking advantage of unique abilities, weapons, and stylish hats.
