With the holidays quickly approaching, it’s a safe bet that many people have received a Nintendo Switch in the past few days. There are few things better than getting a free video game, and a free title for the system is currently available from Prime Gaming for a very limited window. The company is giving the code for its Switch version Mom hid my game!, but availability of the code is limited, so those interested in snagging it will want to jump on it while they can. Prime Gaming is a free service available to all Amazon Prime subscribers, and readers can pause the game right here.
As its name implies, Mom hid my game! Tasks players with trying to find a handheld game console that has been hidden by the player’s mother. The system in question is not a Nintendo Switch (as the title has been released on multiple platforms), and actually somewhat resembles a Nintendo DS. Published by Kemco, the title tasks players with solving puzzles in order to find the game. It’s a simple and silly premise, but it’s also one that a lot of gamers can relate to! The title usually costs $4.99, which isn’t a lot of money, but free is certainly nicer.
There are a huge number of games in the Nintendo Switch eShop, and it’s all too easy to get lost on the smaller ones. It’s been nearly six years since the Switch was first released, and Nintendo has done an excellent job attracting both big games and smaller indie titles. Free games like this give users the perfect excuse to try something they otherwise wouldn’t have, or might have overlooked. It remains to be seen whether Prime Gaming will make any other Switch games free in the near future, but if this giveaway is successful enough, it certainly sounds like a possibility!
