In this case, Amazon are looking at games development, with the launch of Game Studio the firm are looking to develop new games such as the free to play “Living Classics” recently launched on Facebook, it is just a taste of what is to come from the new Games Studio by Amazon.
According to the introduction on the Amazon Game Studios website, this is the plan;
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 favourite 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 have earned, rediscover famous stories, and reunite fox families.
