The latest batch of free PC games for Amazon Prime members is available now. Prime Gaming’s August 2022 lineup includes six free games: StarCraft: Remastered, ScourgeBringer, Recompile, Beasts of Maravilla Island, Family Mysteries: Poisonous Promises, and Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders. As always, Prime members can also access free in-game content throughout the month for popular games such as Apex Legends, Warzone and Destiny 2.
StarCraft: Remastered is undoubtedly the best known game of the group. The improved and updated version of one of the greatest real-time strategy games of all time, originally released in 2017. It includes both the base game and the great Brood War expansion. The pair of campaigns present in the remaster are still worth playing in 2022. When it comes to multiplayer, however, StarCraft is generally one of the least beginner-friendly games. These days, you’ll be playing mostly against dedicated StarCraft veterans, so it’s an uphill battle to succeed in online multiplayer.
Metroidvania lovers should check it out Recompile. A sci-fi adventure inspired by Tron, this 3D platformer puts you in the role of a program that must save itself from obliteration. Recompile has a branching narrative and sleek visuals. It offers a good mix of platforming, fast-paced shooters, and hacking puzzles.
Scourgebringer is another star of the August lineup. Fans of precision rigs will be at home with ScourgeBringer. It has fast-paced combat and a neat progression system that allows you to come back after dying once more. It’s a tough game, but the mechanics are solid and the retro visuals are a delight.
Beasts of Maravilla Island is a photographic adventure that takes place on an isolated island inhabited by mysterious creatures. Family Mysteries: Poisoned Promises is part of the Hidden Object Game series and is set as a police procedural. Meanwhile, Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders is a classic point-and-click adventure from LucasArts.
All six games can be picked up until August 31. Throughout August, Prime members can also access in-game content for Fall Guys, Grand Theft Auto Online, World of Warcraft, and more. If you are not already a Prime member, you can sign up for a 30 day free trial. Once you’ve claimed freebies on Prime Gaming, you can keep them even if your subscription expires.
