What happens when Amazon Game Studios works on a project with Human Head Studios? The new horror survival game Lost Within. The two worked on the game set inside an abandoned asylum that just so happens to be occupied by the Inhabitants, a group tortured and left behind only for players to fight and escape from. Players must navigate through the asylum and collect materials for weapons and health. Lost Within is a first-person game and that means players can expect a truly immersive experience that may or may not keep them up at night.

Amazon Game Studios has a new title available now for Kindle Fire tablets from 2014 and 2013. The action-adventure game is Tales From Deep Space. Players control traveling salesman E and his robotic piece of luggage CASI. The two are attempting to escape the Big Moon space station as it has been locked down. Although the game is of the action-adventure genre, it is full of puzzles with comedy as well.
Through ComiXology, a prequel comic compliments the Tales From Deep Space game. It provides players with the reason as to how E and CASI arrived at the Big Moon space station. If you are purchasing the game, we highly recommend the comic. After all, it is complimentary to the game and it is free.

When the Fire Phone was announced, many wondered how exactly it would utilize so many sensors for the Dynamic Perspective. Specifically, there was a concern with games. How could Amazon possibly take advantage of a key feature for gaming? Well, the company is putting its Game Studios to work. The company has developed two games for the Fire Phone just in time for its launch on July 25.
Both games Amazon is releasing belong to the puzzle genre but differ slightly. To-Fu Fury is a platformer that literally features a ninja-like tofu. The other is Saber’s Edge and involves strategic play and pirates. Be prepared to move around while playing because movement is exactly what these two were designed for. Both cost $1.99 and are ready for Fire Phone owners.

Amazon’s new Fire TV set-top box does just about everything. Even gaming. As its name suggests, Amazon Game Studios is the company’s very own developer for gaming. Today, the studio has posted a video giving a preview at what it has up its sleeve. Amazon Games Studio assures consumers that each and every game is designed specifically for Kindle Fire tablets and the Kindle Fire TV set-top box. The games in the preview show various genres.
An exclusive title was officially announced as well. Sev Zero is available today for $6.99; however, most people will not be able to play it until their Amazon Fire TV devices arrive in the coming days. Buying the Fire TV’s game controller will actually net you Sev Zero automatically. So if you plan on gaming with your Fire TV, do yourself and purchase the game controller.
Hit the break for an Amazon Game Studios preview and a trailer for Sev Zero. And as you wait for your Amazon Fire TV to arrive, check out the first commercial featuring Gary Busey. Read more
Today Amazon released their first company made game into the Play Store. Air Patriots is a game that puts you in control of a squad of planes using drawing controls to direct where and when your fleet attacks their enemies. Since this is a game that is created by Amazon, it also takes advantage of their Whispersync technology for cloud saving. This game, along with the release of the cloud drive photos app, gives Amazon a nice start to the month. I’m a little surprised that these apps aren’t an Amazon appstore exclusive and open to everyone in the Play Store. More images, a trailer video, and download links after the break.
