  • QubicGames is giving away seven Nintendo Switch games for free this weekend.
  • In order to download all seven games, you need to grab Coloring Book on the Switch eShop first, and once you own it, all of the other games will be free to download as well.

Unfortunately, leaving home is still a fairly risky proposition due to the viral pandemic, but the good news is that we have video games to keep us entertained. The only real problem with video games is that they aren’t cheap, but this weekend, publisher QubicGames is giving away seven free games to Nintendo Switch owners. Once you download the first game, the six others will become free downloads as well, and now your weekend is set.

In order to take advantage of this special offer, all you have to do is go to the Nintendo eShop and download Coloring Book, which is free all weekend. Once you own Coloring Book, six other games will automatically become free on the eShop as well. Here are the six other games, with links, videos, and descriptions included:

  • Jumping Joe & Friends: The creators of Robonauts and Astro Bears Party proudly present a new title perfect for intense playtimes with your friends and family.
