Through a blog post, Twitch announced Games With Prime, a new program that will deliver free PC games to all Twitch Prime subscribers. The first batch of games, which subscribers can download until March 31, includes Superhot, Oxenfree, Mr. Shifty, Shadow Tactics, and the Dungeons & Dragons game Tales from Candlekeep: Tomb of Annihilation.
Twitch and Amazon formulate yet another big subscription-engaging strategy by giving out a slew of free games every month.
Free games have intermittently been made available to Twitch Prime subscribers in the past, of course - and members can now download Devil May Cry HD for free.
This is in response to the "incredible community response" that recently came with the Twitch Prime Indie Amplifier program, in which the company was going to gift a popular indie game free to all subscribers.

Just recently, fans were presented with a list of games to vote on as part of the Twitch Prime Indie Amplifier promotion, with the victor being released for free through Twitch Prime this week. The rest of the titles will be released in the following months, in no particular order. Shifty will be available for Twitch Prime members for the first time this month.
The best part is that according to Twitch, these games are for gamers to keep forever.
Considering that Amazon acquired Twitch, it wasn't surprising to see Amazon leverage the streaming platform and fold it into its Prime program with Twitch Prime, a "premium experience" that is included with every Prime or Prime Video membership.
On April 1, another five games will go free for Prime members.
