A new QubicGames promotion is giving away ten free Nintendo Switch games, with one small catch.
The Nintendo eShop has long been the Wild West of digital games stores, with disingenuous price cuts and conditional discounts among the techniques used to increase sales and chart placements. So fair play, we suppose, to QubicGames who are taking a slightly different approach with what amounts to a “Buy One Get Ten Free” promotion.
Between December 15-24, QubicGames are giving away ten free Switch titles via the Nintendo eShop, but there are a few caveats and a catch. The catch is that to qualify you need to own at least one Switch game already published by QubicGames. (You can search using “QubicGames” on the Nintendo eShop website to see the full range.)
Once that’s done, you can download Robonauts for free until December 15. This starts a chain reaction of free games that are available from December 16-24. Each title is only available for 24 hours and must be downloaded to ensure the next game unlocks as a free on the following day.
The QubicGames website has full details on the promotion, as well as news of the publisher’s 15th-anniversary sale. Here’s the full list of giveaway games and availability dates. The final title won’t be revealed until December 24, 2019.

We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
