Thread Summary
Apparently Colouring Book is free and simply downloading that then allows you to download Robonauts free right after.
You must own any* game released by QubicGames on your Nintendo Switch account before Dec 15th.

Download Robonauts for free between Dec 10th - Dec 15th. This will start a chain reaction of free games you can get from QubicGames.

If you skip a game from the list, you won’t be able to get the next day’s game as a free download and all the games listed after that.

To get Robonauts for free you have to download Coloring Book from the eshop. Coloring Book is free!

Robotnauts is the first free game, you must have one of their other ones first.

To ensure everyone has a chance to take part, we’re making it easier to get started. So from Tuesday December 10th to Sunday, December 15th the first game on our giveaway list, Robonauts, will be available for free download to anyone who already has at least one released QubicGames title added to the Nintendo profile*.
There are a few games you can just buy for $1.29 to start your chain for the other free games i suppose....
Read the post above mine....

Are you able to save bandwidth by just starting the download for a game and then cancelling it? I want to pick and choose the ones I want but obviously keep the chain of games going.

Any comments on the games themselves? Are they even worth the effort or are they just going to collect virtual dust and clog up my library?

It's unclear if you need to complete the download

You are still eligible for the special offers, no matter if you keep one game installed or if you delete it from your library (once you download a game, you always own it and can download it again anytime even after deleting it).

I just got coloring book and then robonauts on my phone.

So no need to actually go on the switch itself.

have to be done from the switch consol directly can't add them to your account from the website for some reason despite everything on that page pointing to the opposite

edit: it seems that you have to own a switch already and have it linked to the account in order to participate in the giveaway. So if you plan on collecting the giveaway games until you buy a switch it won't work.

Actually I downloaded colouring book, then immediately cancelled it and deleted it and then downloaded Robonauts as it became 100% off. I think you just need the game in your library.

Edit: if you go to the redownload section in the eshop, it says colouring book is redownloadable even though I never completed the download.

Feels to me like free isnt good enough to stain my library with these shovelwares, but to each his own.

I was able to download both for free from my browser. No issues. Hopefully we get some good free games from this giveaway. Is there anyway to see what games this developer has available on the Switch? The Nintendo website is beyond horrible to use.

The list, for anyone who is interested:

Robonauts: https://nintendo.com/games/detail/robonauts-switch $5 MSRP
Geki Yaba Runner: https://nintendo.com/games/detail/geki- ... ion-switch $4 MSRP
Puzzle Book: https://nintendo.com/games/detail/puzzle-book-switch $5 MSRP
One Strike: https://nintendo.com/games/detail/one-strike-switch $6.30 MSRP
Wreckin Ball Adventure: https://nintendo.com/games/detail/wreck ... ure-switch $6.50 MSRP
Koloro: https://nintendo.com/games/detail/koloro-switch $13 MSRP
RaceDieRun: https://nintendo.com/games/detail/racedierun-switch $12.50 MSRP
Rekt: https://nintendo.com/games/detail/rekt- ... nts-switch $7.50 MSRP
Mana Spark: https://nintendo.com/games/detail/mana-spark-switch $13 MSRP
...and a tenth game to be announced later (December 24th?) You can find the full list of all their releases at https://qubicgames.com/. Just scroll down a bit and click 'see more'.


Which begs the question, are any of these games actually any good? They look like a bunch of shovelware to me. Sure, they're free, but if they're junk, it's not worth the hassle.

If it's a new account, then you can't ever download or purchase any games to that account until it has been associated to a console. Which I assume you haven't done yet. I had the same issue before I finally got a Switch at SDM a week or so ago. Now it all works.
