Increasing the number of subscribers is the name of the game here but hey - as long as it's more free stuff for gamers. Twitch Prime have rolled out their monthly free games bundle and it features some nice titles that you may have missed.

First in line is Superhot, a first person shooter with a unique twist. Superhot is built around a game mechanic whereby time stands still while you're motionless. You make a move and the time starts, making for an interesting game dynamics.

As you can see, Superhot is quite a nice looking game, utilising the raw, 3D polygon framework sort of style. That, coupled with a unique stop 'n go play style should keep you glued to the chair for hours.

Next up is Oxenfree, a horror adventure game equally as delightful as Superhot. Again, there's a unique twist with the radio tuning gimmick and the game provides hours of fun with a really engaging storyline.

Mr. Shifty is a game best described by comparing it to Hotline Miami, although it does, again, introduce a gimmick - teleportation. Perhaps it should've been called a Gimmick Game Bundle? Anyway, it's a top down puncher slash teleporter, with a retro soundtrack to match.

Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun is a multiple award winning real time strategy title, which, as the name may suggest, focuses on stealth instead of fire power. You'll be ninja-sneaking your way around while slashing and shuriken fragging your foes. For free of course.

Completing the offer is an adaptation of Tomb of Annihilation board game and it's clear Twitch Prime subscribers have much to be happy about. Naturally, with game subscription services being all the rage these days, bundles are a regular occurrence, but as long as it brings free stuff in return.
