Amazon might not be spoiling subscribers the the way it has recently, but December is still pretty solid, with the classic FPS Quake heading it up.
Quakin’ and shakin’
If you’re a Prime Gaming subscriber, though whatever means, you’ve been kind of spoiled lately. The last few months have served up the likes of Fallout’s New Vegas and 76, Total War: Warhammer II, Middle-earth: Shadow of War, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Assassin’s Creed Origins, Starcraft, and a whole bunch more.
Now, those are some big names. Huge names even. But uh, you’re not going to find too many games of that level in this month’s collection titles. Not that December of 2022 is bad, it’s just not ‘blockbuster’.
If you’re looking for big names, basically all you’re going to find (in terms of freebies), is Quake. But of course Id’s monster 90s hit isn’t alone, and there are some pretty solid titles up for grabs other than it.
- Quake – Defeat the ancient evil that threatens humanity by fighting corrupted knights, ogres and an army of twisted creatures across four dark dimensions of infested military bases, ancient medieval castles, lava-filled dungeons and gothic cathedrals in search of the four magic runes.
- Rose Riddle 2: Werewolf Shadow – Solve the mystery of the Werewolf Shadow as Rose Riddle, a top sleuth and unwitting princess of the realm. Travel from one beautiful location to the next to collect evidence you need to solve the crime and stop the emerging disaster before it’s too late.
- The Amazing American Circus – Take charge of your run-down circus as you build your troupe, manage your circus camp, explore Gilded Age America and amaze your audience to become the leader of a show the world has never seen!
- Banners of Ruin – Assemble your party! Answer the call and win the war by building a deck and fighting a series of turn-based combats with up to six characters through the city of Dawn’s Point.
- Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons – From visionary Swedish film director Josef Fares and top-tier developer Starbreeze Studios, guide two brothers simultaneously on an epic fairy tale journey by solving puzzles, exploring diverse locations and fighting boss battles to bring back the “Water of Life.”
- Spinch – From the award-winning Canadian cartoonist Jesse Jacobs, transcend the material realm as Spinch, a hyper-agile organism on a quest to rescue its litter of missing offspring in this side-scrolling, psychedelic platformer.
- Desert Child – Escape Earth before it explodes by playing as a hungry, young hoverbike racer to hunt bounties, throw races and do whatever it takes to get to Mars and win the Grand Prix!
- Doors: Paradox – Unravel this mysterious adventure about chaos by making your way through a variety of handmade 3D scenes in search of useful objects, discovering hidden clues to solve fun puzzles!
Don’t forget Luna and all that DLC
Of course, along with all of the above, Amazon is also delivering a new dose of cloud-based Luna gaming. If you don’t know, Luna has changed a bit, and now rotates in and out a section of monthly titles.
Again it’s cloud-based too, so there’s nothing to install, and you can play as much of any of the games on offer as you want. All you need is a good and solid internet connection.
This month those games include:
- Windjammers 2
- The Legend of Heroes: Trails from Zero
- The Smurfs: Mission Vileaf
