Amazon Game Studios wants 'to set a new bar for game art'
While we weren't exactly enthralled by the release, it's the company's attempt to bring a little more life to a stale genre on social networks. "At Amazon Game Studios, we aim to innovate with games that are broadly accessible and appeal to many customers. Previous games on Facebook involved players finding objects hidden in a static scene," Amazon Game Studios GM Michael Robinson tells us. "Living Classics is a moving object game, which is new and more fun."
"We've also put a significant effort into making Living Classics a beautiful game. We want to set a new bar for game art. Most hidden object games are restricted to photo-realistic imagery in order to make finding objects straightforward," Robinson adds. "With a moving object game, we don't have the same constraint and we've tried to make the most of that freedom."
"At Amazon, we start with the customer and work backwards," Robinson says. "Amazon Game Studios is all about delighting our customers with innovative and fun games. Amazon customers enjoy playing games and we believe we can deliver a great, accessible and fun gaming experience that our customers can play any time. We are excited to launch Living Classics on the Facebook platform today and you can count on seeing even more well-crafted games coming from Amazon Game Studios in the future. Stay tuned."
