Amazon is the master of the offer of free stuff in exchange for a yearly subscription, and that thinking is slowly spreading to Twitch, which Amazon acquired back in 2014. The latest perk for Prime subscriber is free games from Twitch every month.

If the Twitch blog explained the Free Games with Prime offers comes from the back of a very successful Twitch Prime Indie Amplifier. During the promotion, the viewers were asked to look into special streams, and provides information on a number of indie games. Votes were then cast votes for your favorite games, and then on March 11, the vote is closed, a winner will be chosen, and the main members got the winning game for free.

The promotion has now been changed to free games for all Prime + Twitch members each month from tomorrow, March 15. If you already have a subscription, expect to get Superhot and Oxenfree free and to keep forever. Twitch also decided to make all eight of the Indie-Amplifier, free games for the coming months, with Shadow Tactics and Candlekeep: Tomb of Destruction is the first appearance of this month. Finally, Prime members also get 2.5 D beat ’em up of the Lord with Me for free this month, taking the total up to five free games in March.

Twitch went ahead and published what games will be free in April, with the line-up including:
