SteamWorld Heist is the next free game for Twitch and Amazon Prime subscribers

The SteamWorld series is an eclectic—and excellent—mix of titles, as Austin described in his interview with developer Image & Form (opens in new tab) earlier this month. Twitch Prime subscribers can now own a slice of it for free by picking up SteamWorld Heist, a turn-based strategy game that's a bit like a 2D steampunk XCOM.

It's free until December 27—all you have to do is log into your account and head to the game's Twitch page (opens in new tab) to claim the deal. And remember, if you're an Amazon Prime subscriber then you get Twitch Prime for free. Head to this page (opens in new tab) and link your accounts together for in-game loot, ad-free viewing and free games like this one.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: alone, Twitch Prime isn't worth the cost of entry for Amazon Prime, but it's yet another reason to sign up. The games you get are good ones more often than not. Superhot was free last weekend (opens in new tab), and The Flame in the Flood, Day of the Tentacle Remastered, Oxenfree and Titan Souls have all been thrown in at one point or another. 

PC Gamer didn't review Heist when it came out but Austin's interview should give you a good idea. And for what it's worth, the Steam user reviews (opens in new tab) are glowing.
