The next batch of free PC games for Amazon Prime members has been announced. The Prime Gaming 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 will also be able to snag free in-game content for popular games such as Apex Legends, Warzone, and Destiny 2.
StarCraft: Remastered is undoubtedly the best-known game of the bunch. The upgraded and refreshed version of one of the greatest real-time strategy games of all time originally released back in 2017. It includes both the base game and the great expansion Brood War. The pair of campaigns present in the remaster are definitely still worth playing in 2022. When it comes to multiplayer, though, StarCraft is generally one of the unfriendliest games to beginners. These days, you’ll mostly be playing against dedicated StarCraft veterans, so it it’s an uphill battle to find success in the online multiplayer.
Metroidvania enthusiasts should check out Recompile. A science fiction adventure inspired by Tron, this 3D platformer places you in the role of a program that needs to save itself from being erased. Recompile has a branching narrative and stylish visuals. It offers a nice mix of platforming, fast-paced gunplay, and hacking puzzles.
