Twitch Prime membership is turning into a valuable source of free games, seeing as how Amazon made sure linking your Prime account to Twitch's service brings in free games. Just like in March 2018, there are five games on the menu.

Perhaps the first one to strike the eye is Tales from the Borderlands, Telltale Games' interactive sci-fi game slash novel based on the world of Borderlands. Oldie, perhaps, but goldie? Most certainly.

The original game is made by Gearbox Software, of course, but Telltale Games' take on the universe has won them quite a few accolades along the way. In fact, Tales from the Borderlands have been praised for pretty much every gaming aspect other than perhaps graphics performance.

SteamWorld Dig 2 is a delightful little platform game that puts you in the shoes of a steam-propelled robot Dorothy as you jump and dig your way around archaeology dig-themed world.

In case you've played it's predecessor, Steam World Dig, you should know that Steam World Dig 2 isn't procedurally generated and has much greater emphasis on classic platformer elements.

Kingsway is a fantasy, role playing game that developer Andy Morrish says draws heavily on the likes of Papers, Please. However, Kingsway lets users interact with it through a Windows 95 style operating system, which already sounds equally as nightmarish and tedious as Papers, Please, if not more.

Tokyo 42 is an isometric perspective game that has you silently killing your targets across futuristic Tokyo. Well, silently as far as possible, since Tokyo 42 does eventually turn into a mega bloodbath.

The game uses a clever gimmick of manipulating Tokyo 42's isometric camera, which helps players with in-game missions and lets them see the wonderfully rendered world from another perspective as well.

This is not the first time DubWars is being offered up by Twitch. However, the game remains a unique take at music oriented games and even though we're still talking about an arcade shooter, DubWars is built around a premise of players syncing their in-game progress with the music.
