Twitch just announced that they will start giving away video games on a monthly basis to all Twitch Prime subscribers starting March 15, 2018, thanks to a new program called Free Games with Prime. They will start off by giving away five games, including Superhot and Oxenfree.
Twitch Prime is included in Amazon Prime, so if you were already paying the 19.95 euros a year that cost free shipping in one day and the rest of Prime services, now you can also receive a few PC games for free every month.

Depending on the platform to claim the game you may have to connect your Twitch account again. For example, if the game is on Steam, you will need to connect your Steam and Twitch accounts to claim the games on that platform.
