Amazon launches its first game Living Classics, officially introduces Amazon Game Studios

Amazon today announced that it launched its first ever game called Living Classics, available now on Facebook. The announcement also marks the the first official announcement of Amazon Game Studios, which we’ve known Amazon has been hiring for as early late May 2011.

The statement from Amazon describes Living Classics as a “Moving object game.” Judging by the trailer that was released with the announcement it seems as if the game is a partially animated hidden object game.

In the game a family of foxes wanders into animated illustrations of classic books like Alice in Wonderland, The Wizard of Oz and King Arthur. Players help the foxes reunite be exploring illustrated scenes and spotting moving objects. The game also allows players to visit friends and share rewards.
