Twitch Prime subscribers are a lucky lot. They’re once again getting a handful of free games to fill their free time.

Twitch announced the free games Prime subscribers will receive for the month of March on Wednesday. You can download these games on your PC until March 31 for free.

What is Twitch Prime?

Twitch Prime is a premium version of the service that lets you stream ad-free on the service. You’ll also get exclusive Prime Packs for games like Apex LegendsStarCraft II, and League of Legends. With Twitch Prime, you’ll get free two-day shipping on official Twitch merch, guaranteed release-date delivery on must-have games, and free channel subscriptions. Twitch Prime is included with Amazon Prime, which costs $119.99 per year and comes with all sorts of other perks, like access to Amazon Prime’s deep video library and originals.

Free games on Twitch Prime for March 2019

1) Star Vikings Forever

First up is Star Vikings Forever, a puzzle RPG that features astronaut Vikings fighting space snails. It gives me some serious original Plants vs. Zombies vibes.

2) The King’s Bird

Next up is The King’s Bird from Serenity Forge. If you’ve ever wondered what a 2D Journey would look like, here’s your chance. You’ll fly your way through the platformer/puzzler with a really strong flair for gliding-based movement.

3) Kabounce

After that, there’s Kabounce, which I’m electing to call a first-person pinball game, but from the perspective of the ball, you see. You’ll want to play this one with friends, if only to smash their sentient pinball to smithereens.

4) Snake Pass

Finally, you’ll get the lovely Snake Pass from Sumo Digital. It’s a platformer, but you’re a snake, so good luck winding your way up poles and getting across chasms with some intense coordination. It’s a surprisingly difficult but fun gem.

If you want to claim these free games, make sure you’ve attached your Amazon Prime account to your Twitch account. You’ll get an assortment of free games every month, as well as special in-game loot in games like Fortnite.
