Amazon Game Studios has announced that they will be releasing four of their original premium mobile games to the iPhone and iPad. This is a change from their previous efforts which focused only on games for Android, which were often exclusive to Amazon hardware, like the Fire TV only game Sev Zero. Existing games Tales From Deep Space and To-Fu Fury will be among the four released. Additionally, two games currently in development, the haunted adventure game Til Morning’s Light and horror game Lost Within will also make their way to iOS devices. No release date has been set for any of the four titles.
Exclusive games have not been attracting customers to Amazon hardware the same way exclusive content has been working to grow Amazon’s Prime membership. The runaway success of the Fire TV Stick, as proven by Amazon’s inability to keep the device in stock, over the Fire TV is just one example that consumers are willing to give up premium gaming in exchange for lower cost hardware. This platform expansion to iOS will allow Amazon’s game developer team to reach a wider audience and grant them the opportunity to prove they can make great gaming experiences.
