Check out the list below for more information, and be sure to claim your games before November 30.
RAGE 2: Deluxe Edition – November 2
RAGE 2 is the ultimate reimagining of the classic game that revolutionized the first-person shooter genre. From studio powerhouses Avalanche Studios and ID Software, RAGE 2 offers a carnival of carnage where you can go anywhere, shoot anything, and explode everything.
Walker, the last ranger of the wasteland, is on a mission to bring justice to a dystopian world where society, law, and order have collapsed. You will experience thrilling vehicle combat as you explore the unforgiving wasteland, fighting off dangerous gangs to gather the tools and technology needed to take down The Authority. It’s an epic adventure full of action and excitement!
Centipede: Recharged – November 9
Centipede: Recharged is a retro reboot of the classic arcade game that feels fresh 40 years after it first enthralled audiences. Its vector-like graphics fit perfectly, and its controls are still a joy.
The only blemish here is that online leaderboards are missing, and local co-op is not available, but it’s a minor quibble in a game that otherwise succeeds at what it sets out to do.
Adamvision Studios and Sneaky Box have reimagined this classic with a Tron-like laser setting and new power-ups to aid you as you blast your way through the Centipedes, Spiders, and Fleas that fill your screen in an endless onslaught. Its bullet hell gameplay is addictive and a great example of how you can have a good time without needing to add a bunch of flashy bells and whistles.
Prime Gaming subscribers will be able to claim this Atari classic on November 9 and then pick up the Taiwanese adventure Behind the Frame: The Finest Scenery less than a week later, followed by the riveting mystery-thriller puzzle game Evan’s Remains on the 16th.
Evan’s Remains – November 10
From the outside, Evan’s Remains looks like a fairly standard pixel art platformer that puts its puzzles front and center. It does do that, but the mechanical aspects are undercut by an engrossing story at nearly every turn. Even when it seems like the game is asking too much of its players — such as in a sequence where Dysis remarks that platforms on a structure could disappear or teleport without her intervention and she could just walk around them if she wanted to — it’s clear that these elements exist to serve the narrative.
Combining logic-based platforming with visual novel elements, the gorgeous pixel graphics in Evan’s Remains are a delight to look at, and the puzzles are challenging enough to make you think. But the underlying story is what really makes this game a standout, and it’s well worth taking this four-hour journey through the island to see how everything fits together.
Behind the Frame: The Finest Scenery – November 16
While many indie games aim to blur the line between video games and art through beautiful aesthetics and creative environmental storytelling, few succeed, as well as Behind the Frame. Designed as a relaxing experience that can be played at one’s own pace, Silver Lining Studio’s offering uses brush strokes to tell the story of an aspiring painter. On the surface, it appears to be nothing more than a simple game with some Studio Ghibli flare, but there are deeper themes and twists beneath its wholesome veneer.
Each segment of gameplay consists of paintings with new paint colors unlocked as the story progresses, but the real draw is seeing the paintings in all their beauty. It’s a full-circle journey that provides a glimpse into the mind of an artist as they complete their masterpiece, and it’s an experience that anyone should be sure to try.
Discover a captivating story of opportunity and creativity inspired by Miyazaki/Studio Ghibli’s stunning artwork. As you play, help a young artist finish her masterpiece by using brush strokes to solve an array of puzzles. And if you’re an Amazon Prime Gaming member, you can even claim the VR version of the game on November 16!
STAR WARS: Knights of the Old Republic – November 16
A classic in the genre, Knights of the Old Republic offers players a unique look at Star Wars history.
As the last hope of the Jedi Order, you have a great responsibility on your shoulders. You must learn to control the amazing power of the Force in order to save the Republic. But be careful, as there is a dark side that beckons, tempting you to use your power for evil. Will you become a hero or a villain? Will you be known as the savior or the conqueror of the galaxy? The fate of the entire universe rests in your hands!
The story takes place in the Outer Rim region of the galaxy, a lawless area that’s home to mercenaries, smugglers, and pirates. The player’s Ebon Hawk can explore multiple planets as they take on a wide range of enemies and allies. The main antagonists are Darth Malak and his Sith armada, as well as Black Vulkar gang leader Brejik, crime boss Davik Kang, bounty hunter Calo Nord, Zaalbar’s brother Chuundar, Republic representative Roland Wann, and Czerka Corporation exec Saul Karath.
The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk: The Amulet of Chaos – November 22
The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk: The Amulet of Chaos is a zany but satisfying tactical dungeon crawler. While the coarse humor isn’t for everyone, it is funny enough and well-crafted. The game also features surprisingly challenging combat that will keep players coming back.
A group of inexperienced adventurers embark on a quest to retrieve a valuable item from a dungeon filled with monsters. The journey takes them through the treacherous and mysterious Dungeon of Naheulbeuk. The player’s party is filled with parodies of typical fantasy characters, including an over-confident Ranger, a dim-witted Elf, a crass Dwarf, a bloodthirsty Barbarian, and a cowardly Thief.
The action in the game is presented from an isometric viewpoint, with battles taking place on battlefields that are divided into grids. Each character has one movement and action per turn.
The game’s visuals ooze with charm and are a real treat to look at, even if they don’t push the graphics limits of current hardware. However, they are still quite detailed, and they complement the game’s zany humor and goofy design aesthetics well.
Black Widow: Recharged – November 23
Defend your web from insect invaders in this revamped twin-stick shooter. While it may look like a simpler version of Asteroids or Robotron, Black Widow does offer its own unique twist with more variety in the enemies you’ll face and power-ups you can collect to enhance your attacks. You can play by yourself or team up with a friend to take on 30 exciting challenges and endless arcade mode.
Orten Was the Case -November 30
In Orten Was the Case, you will dive into the world of this thrilling adventure and will take on the role of Ziggy, an unlikely hero who finds himself caught in a time loop.
With the fate of the world hanging in the balance, Ziggy must prevent a dangerous conspiracy from being set into motion and causing chaos. Along the way, you’ll encounter unexpected twists and turns as you navigate through a carefully crafted storyline filled with action, suspense, and intrigue.
Caverns of Mars: Recharged – November 30
Like many other games in the Recharged series, Caverns of Mars is a classic Atari game that’s been reimagined with a few modern improvements. It’s an arcade shooter where you travel down through a series of caverns while shooting targets and conserving fuel.
The gameplay is simple enough that you’ll probably find yourself getting sucked into playing one more quick run. The graphics are nice, with pitch blacks for the cavern walls and red scrolling backgrounds that contrast well. Megan McDuffee once again provides the music, and it sounds great both on TV and handheld.
You will join a team of explorers on a thrilling mission to Mars as they venture into underground tunnels to take down the enemy base. As you journey through the tunnels, you’ll face various challenges, including dodging debris, clearing obstacles, and battling foes. You’ll need to use your strategic skills to conserve your resources and ammo as you descend deeper into enemy territory.
