Antstream Arcade has become the first cloud gaming platform to launch on the Epic Games Store. It has over 1200 classic retro games like Space Invaders or Mortal Kombat that will be available to users for free.

As pointed out by Antstream, players will be able to play these titles using streaming technology with no downloads or microtransactions.

New users will also get a free gem pack worth $14.99 in the next seven days. It can be spent to enter tournaments hosted on the platform and unlock new challenges for games from the library.

“We are on a mission to bring some of the greatest games ever created to a socially connected global community using the latest in streaming technology. Today’s launch in the Epic Store is a huge step towards achieving that goal,” Antstream Arcade CEO Steve Cottam said.

The platform was founded in 2013 as a subscription service for classic games. Its library includes games licensed from Warner Bros., Atari, Disney, Bandai Namco, and some smaller developers.

Earlier this week, Antstream received $500,000 from Atari. The company also plans to invest up to $3.5 million in the cloud gaming platform.
