With it being the first of the month, Prime Gaming has launched a new collection of games that can be claimed by Amazon Prime subscribers at no additional cost.

Prime Gaming’s August offerings include Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders, Beasts of Maravilla Island, Recompile, ScourgeBringer, Family Mysteries: Poisonous Promises, and, perhaps most excitingly, StarCraft: Remastered, a remastered version of Blizzard’s acclaimed 1998 sci-fi RTS.

This month’s lineup of free titles, as detailed by Dustin Blackwell, head of PR for Prime Gaming:

StarCraft: Remastered — Command the mechanized Terrans, psi-powered Protoss and insectoid Zerg as they vie for map control of eight unique environments in this upgraded sci-fi strategy experience that pioneered the world of esports.

Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders — In the classic point-and-click adventure game, only Zak McKracken, a reporter for the disreputable National Inquisitor can save the day. Travel back in time to 1997 and join Zak in a world in which Space Aliens have built a stupidity machine to slowly deplete every human being’s IQ to single digits.

Beasts of Maravilla Island — Embrace the role of a young wildlife photographer who traverses Maravilla Island’s magical ecosystems to discover extraordinary creatures, learn their behaviors and most importantly, photograph their majesty.

Recompile — Take control of a semi-sapient program struggling against deletion in the sprawling 3D world of a Mainframe. Recompile features against intense combat, tight 3D platforming, super-powered abilities and an environmental logic-based hacking mechanic.

ScourgeBringer — Jump in to help Kyhra in this fast-paced free-moving platformer as she explores the vast unknown and slashes her way through ancient machines guarding the seal of her past and maybe the redemption of humanity.

Family Mysteries: Poisonous Promises — Plunge yourself into the world of debauched elites, alluring women and corrupted cops, while fighting for power, the ultimate currency.

Prime Members can easily claim these games by heading to the Prime Gaming page and filtering out the offers by hitting the Games tab. All of the offers, including StarCraft: Remastered, will be available at no cost for Amazon Prime subscribers for 30 days.

Control: Ultimate Edition, Myst, Garfield Kart, and Steel Assault have also been added to the Prime Gaming Channel today. Prime subscribers can play these via Amazon Luna, Amazon’s cloud gaming service.
