From print books, to eBooks, one-click shopping, Android tablets, Cloud Services and now games, Amazon is really diversifying its services and offerings. The e-tail giant has just introduced Facebook games under its Amazon Game Studio with a series of original games. Hit jump for their full information and release.
"We’re so happy to finally be able to reveal the social game we’ve been hard at work on – Living Classics. But before we jump into that, a little bit about us, since it’s not just our game, but also our team, Amazon Game Studios, that we’re announcing with this post.
Amazon Game Studios is exactly what it sounds like: a new team at Amazon that’s focused on creating innovative, fun and well-crafted games. Our first title, Living Classics, is debuting on Facebook today.
Why is Amazon making social games, you ask? Good question! We know that many Amazon customers enjoy playing games – including free-to-play social games – and thanks to Amazon's know-how, we believe we can deliver a great, accessible gaming experience that gamers and our customers can play any time.
Living Classics, our first major release, is what we call a “moving object game.” In the game, a family of foxes have wandered into vibrant, animated illustrations from their favorite books including Alice in Wonderland, The Wizard of Oz, and King Arthur. Players help to reunite the foxes by exploring beautifully illustrated scenes and spotting moving objects. You can visit friends, share rewards you’ve earned, rediscover famous stories, and reunite fox families.
Don’t take our word for it though – play right now, for free at: http://apps.facebook.com/LivingClassics
We hope you like it.
