[Amazon.ca] Free games for Amazon Prime subscribers: The Spectrum Retreat and Lost Horizon

Anyone with an Amazon Prime subscription also has Prime Gaming (AKA Twitch Prime).
Usually, the free games on Prime Gaming aren't exactly impressive, but the latest two additions are decent.

The Spectrum Retreat
A first-person puzzle game (full price value of $14.49 on Steam)

Lost Horizon
A point and click adventure game (full price value of $10.99 on Steam)

Enjoy! Pick up the games here before Dec 25. Lots of other free games available too.

Like how Prime Video got Amazon into video streaming, Amazon is also branching into gaming. They add free games each month...

I've been a prime subscriber for years and I didn't even realize this was available in Canada. Always assumed it was US prime only. That being said, I don't use twitch at all despite being an avid gamer, so I'm not surprised. Thanks for posting.

This is new free Twitch stuff. Amazon is rebranding parts of Twitch and Prime Gaming is one part.

Also Amazon has their own game dev studio that launched with three games, two of which have failed and only New World MMO remains.

Do you lose access and saves to the claimed games after Prime membership is over?

Are these all Windows only? Is there any way to claim these through Steam to use the Steam Wine Emulation on Linux?

Should I just claim every game available to me?
I wasn't sure if I might have to pay, or have a set amout of claim credits or something?

I'm seeing around 32 games on here.
I don't plan on play most of them, but I like the idea of having it available.

Are these only playable on PC? Can I play through a console or mobile device? Can I use a Stadia or Xbox One controller to play them?

I believe once you have claimed the games as a prime member the games remain in your account permanently, even if you no longer have a prime subscription.
