Amazon Launches ‘Living Classics’ Social Game
Amazon has announced the launch of Living Classics, the company’s first ever social game, and formally introduced Amazon Game Studios – a new team at Amazon that’s focused on creating innovative, fun and well-crafted games.
Living Classics is a moving object game featuring a family of foxes that have wandered into active illustrations from their favorite books including Alice in Wonderland, The Wizard of Oz, and King Arthur.
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.
The free game is available now on Facebook at https://apps.facebook.com/LivingClassics. Also, please be sure to check out and Like the Living Classics Fan Page on Facebook for future updates.
