Amazon’s Prime Gaming Offers Free Select LucasArts Classics
While new chapters or remakes would be great; it is nice to see the classics get some love.
Amazon’s Prime Gaming is amping up the nostalgia this summer by offering Amazon Prime members a selection of free classic LucasArts games for PC. On the first of every month, beginning today through September 1, Prime members can play iconic point-and-click adventures from legendary developer LucasArts, including The Secret of Monkey Island, Sam & Max: Hit The Road, and Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis.
The roster of LucasArts titles available with Prime Gaming has something to offer for players of all ages and skill levels, from longtime fans who grew up with these classic titles to newcomers experiencing them for the first time. Like all free games from Prime Gaming, once players claim these titles they are theirs to keep forever.
