Sometimes a deal that seems too good to be true is, in fact, true. This is one of those times: During the entire month of December, Amazon is giving away a whopping eight games and tons of free loot to Amazon Prime members.

Not a member? Believe it or not, you can still get the goods. Sign up for the free 30-day Prime trial here, and you can take advantage of this free offer. Once the trial is over, you can either subscribe to Amazon Prime for $13 a month (or $119 a year) or just cancel altogether. No hard feelings.

Along with on-the-house games that change every month, Prime Gaming (formerly Twitch Prime) offers free level-up options for characters, boosts, skins and more. And even if you cancel the service, you can keep the games in your digital library. It's an amazing deal!

To take advantage, download the Amazon Games app. Games can be played on Windows desktops and laptops, Android smartphones and tablets, Google Chromecast, PS5 and PS4, Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One, Android TV and more. So no matter where and how you like to game, you're all set.

If you're a big fan of builder games, this one — where you construct a city while battling for survival — will keep you struggling (in a good way) for hours. Even cooler? It takes place in a steampunk-esque alternate history.
