You can get Devolver Digital's newest game Pikuniku with Twitch Prime right now. Games being offered as part of Twitch Prime isn't anything particularly new, but this happens to be a particularly interesting situation: Pikuniku isn't even out yet.

Pikuniku is a weird little game (as if the fact that it's published by Devolver Digital didn't tip you off to that already). This cutesy puzzle platformer has you trying to accomplish a singular goal: make people happy. That's kind of hard to do since, despite appearances, the world is actually a terrible dystopia that's beleaguered by a deep-state conspiracy. Check out the latest trailer and see if you can make sense of what's going on, because I sure as heck can't:

If this sounds like your kind of thing, great news: a post on the Twitch blog states that you can get Pikuniku on Twitch Prime until January 23, 2019. Amazingly, this is in advance of the game's January 24 launch date. Once an exclusive early access period for this game is over, Twitch Prime members will have a second chance to grab it at a later period which will conclude on February 28, 2019.

 
 

This isn't the only Devolver Digital game that you can nab with Twitch Prime—a whole bunch of other excellent titles are available until January 31, 2019. If you're not already a member of Twitch Prime, you can get on board by signing up for Amazon Prime. The list of available games changes on a regular basis and is available at twitch.tv/prime. If you'd just like to buy Pikuniku straight-up, you'll be able to do so on its Steam Store page or on the Nintendo eShop on January 24, 2019.

Disclosure: Amazon works with TechRaptor for affiliate partnership, and TechRaptor earns a small commission off purchases made from some links in this article.

I've had a controller in my hand since I was 4 and I haven't stopped gaming since. CCGs, Tabletop Games, Pen & Paper RPGs - I've tried a whole bunch of stuff over the years and I'm always looking to try more!
