Ten games are free in January for Twitch Prime members: Dandara, Anarcute, Kingdom: New Lands, A Normal Lost Phone, Splasher, Enter the Gungeon, Ape Out, Witcheye, Gato Roboto, and Heave Ho.

The 10 games are available to download for free until early February; some are listed for download until Feb. 1, others until Feb. 3. It’s a good bunch of games to start off 2020 — Ape Out, in particular, is a perfect post-holiday stress reliever. There’s stuff to smash!

Alongside the free games, Amazon-owned Twitch is giving away plenty of in-game loot and other stuff for Twitch Prime members.

In-game items are available for Mobile Legends Bang Bang, Black Desert Mobile, King of Fighters, and Raid: Shadow Legends. Starter packs are game bundles available for redemption — they’re available for World of Tanks, Warframe, World of Warships, and TERA.

Twitch Prime is free for anyone with an Amazon Prime subscription. To get the free membership, you’ll need to link your Twitch and Amazon accounts. There are plenty of perks to the Twitch Prime members, including a rotating selection of free games. Often, there are different sorts of freebies, too — in 2019, Twitch gave away 30-day Crunchroll Premium memberships.

The next level of puzzles.

Take a break from your day by playing a puzzle or two! We’ve got SpellTower, Typeshift, crosswords, and more.
