It was slated to give away a game of fans' choosing this month, but instead, the streaming service is expanding its plans and formalizing its giveaways into the aptly titled Free Games With Prime program. Ever since it arrived it launched in 2016, subscribers were privy to free games every so often.

Unless Free Games with Prime deviates from Twitch's usual delivery method (the company's announcement blogpost was a bit light on details), you'll likely be required to install the Twitch Desktop App in order to access your monthly games. The new initiative kicks off on March 15 and includes five indies, and is a major extension of the recent Indie Amplifier program.

Provided you have a Twitch Prime membership-which is one of the free perks for being an Amazon Prime subscriber-you'll actually be getting much more this week than just the winning game, which turned out to be Shadow Tactics.

This is in response to the "incredible community response" that recently came with the Twitch Prime Indie Amplifier program, in which the company was going to gift a popular indie game free to all subscribers.

We're digging into our archives to bring you the best of our previously released games, starting with a pair of critically acclaimed titles: Superhot and Oxenfree. There will be five games given away this month which includes Superhot, Shadow Tactics, Tales from Candlekeep, Oxenfree, and Mr. Shift, and another five will be given away in the following month.

Finally, the 2.5D beat 'em up Mr. Twitch posted a full list of upcoming free games for the rest of March and April.
