Nintendo Switch game free download for one more day

A Nintendo Switch, Nintendo Switch Lite, and Nintendo Switch OLED game is currently free on Nintendo eShop, but there are two pitfalls. The first is that the deal expires tomorrow, January 25. We don’t know exactly when tomorrow, but it will probably be at the end of the day. The other catch is that this offer is only available to Amazon Prime subscribers through Prime Gaming. If you don’t have an Amazon Prime subscription, you’re out of luck.

As for the game itself, it’s a smaller download-only title Mom hid my game. Normally the game in question only costs $4.99, so this isn’t the biggest savings ever, but it’s very unusual for games to be made free through Nintendo eShop. We don’t know why this is, but it applies to all consoles, which rarely get free game promotions like Steam.

Released by Hap and Kemco, the game has a 73 on Metacritic, or at least the Nintendo Switch version. Meanwhile, the Metacritic User Review score is 7.1. In other words, critics and general consumers seem to agree on the quality of the game.

“Let’s find the game console that mommy hid,” reads an official blurb about the game. “Is it in the chest or on the shelf? Could it also be under the couch? Where is it!? Find the ‘game’ in each level using different items! An easy and fun escape game awaits you!”

On the Nintendo Switch, the game only takes up a modest 433 MB of space, which is great because there isn’t much hard drive space on the Switch. For 433 MB, and currently at no extra cost, you get a game that supports all three game modes (handheld, TV, and tabletop) and the following language options: English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish.
