Given its love of purple, you might think Twitch would be on the side of the evil tentacles. Not so, though—for a limited time you can grab Day of the Tentacle Remastered for free, provided you’re a Twitch Prime (read: Amazon Prime) member.
It’s the latest in a string of freebies from Twitch. The past few months have seen promotions for Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds and Overwatch, plus full games like Breach & Clear, Oxenfree, and Gone Home. A pretty solid track record, all things considered.
The catch, of course, is that Twitch (read: still Amazon) wants you to download and install its proprietary client on your PC, a.k.a. the Twitch Desktop App. No, they’re not just giving away Steam keys. It’s a carbon copy of EA’s tactics with Origin and the On the House program, giving away classic games as long as you’re willing to use something other than Steam.
