Prime Gaming is offering three of PC gaming's best point-and-click adventures for free to Amazon Prime members.

Starting on July 1, on the first of every month for the next three months, Prime members will be able to pick up one classic LucasArts point-and-click adventure for free. The games on offer include The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition (July 1), Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis (August 1) and Sam & Max: Hit The Road (September 1).

Released back in 1990, The Secret of Monkey Island remains one of the greatest (and funniest) point-and-click adventures on PC and sees wannabe pirate Guybrush Threepwood on the search for the secret of Monkey Island. The Special Edition reimagines the classic game for modern audiences, with a new art style, remastered score, hint system and full voiceover. It's a twisty tale full of laugh-out-loud moments and a must-play for those who enjoy the likes of Psychonauts and Day of the Tentacle – after all, DoubleFine's co-founder Tim Schafer was co-designer on the game.

August's offering, Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, is another classic not to be missed. This point-and-click Indiana Jones adventure is set on the eve of World War 2, with Nazi agents about to get their hands on a weapon more dangerous than the atomic bomb. 

It is, of course, up to Indy to stop them and uncover the secret of Atlantis. Fate of Atlantis may not be massively action-packed, but it's perfect for those who love problem and puzzle-solving. Plus, it'll fill that Jones-shaped hole until the new Indiana Jones game releases.

Last but not least, September's offering is Sam & Max: Hit The Road. This 1993 2D adventure sees freelance police Sam and Max attempting to crack their toughest case yet: tracking down a runaway carnival bigfoot. Sam & Max: Hit The Road is a madcap adventure that's as bizarre as it is hilarious. And, with Sam & Max: This Time It’s Virtual! set to release sometime this year, it's a great chance to get to know the daring duo.

You can grab these classic titles as they become available on the Prime Gaming website. Once you claim them, they're yours to keep forever.
