Important note posted by Nick5324 over at slickdeals:

FYI: You must run the game (not just install it) while the “Amazon games and software downloader” is still running, otherwise these are 30 minute trials. Once you’ve run the game once with the games and software downloader running, you should be able to play it without the games and software downloader running.
