Amazon Launches Games Division8 Aug, 2012 By: Chris Tribbey
Amazon has launched its own gaming division, Amazon Game Studios, as well as the group’s first online social game for Facebook: Living Classics.
“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,” the company announced in a blog post. “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 is a moving object game where a family of foxes wander into animated illustrations from Alice in Wonderland, The Wizard of Oz and King Arthur, and players are charged with reuniting the foxes.
The game is available at apps.facebook.com/LivingClassics.
