Contradiction video murder mystery game makes Android debut on the Fire TV

Contradiction is a very unique murder mystery game that just arrived on the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick. The game uses live-action video for the entirety of the game play, which involves interviewing characters and spotting their lies to solve a murder. It was funded through a successful Kickstarter campaign which resulted in a release on iOS, where it has earned a 4.5 star rating, and a release on Steam, where it has been 97% positive reviews from over 1,000 reviewers. It’s now making its Android debut on Fire TV devices. The game offers 8 hours of gameplay and you can try a free version before committing to buy the full version. It’s compatible with all Fire TV models except the 2nd-gen Fire TV Stick, but hopefully that is just a listing error and will be resolved. The game works with either a remote or game controller.

If you aren’t a user of Amazon’s Prime Photos, or if you just have photos stored on several services, you may be interested in the trio of Fire TV and Fire TV Stick apps that just went on sale. The apps pFolio for Google Photos, FlickFolio for Flickr, and ShutterFolio for Shutterfly have each gone on sale for $2.99. These apps allow you to view photos from each respective service on your Fire TV.

They have all been $0.99 for brief periods in the past, but it’s rare for them to go on sale. All apps are compatible with all Fire TV and Fire TV Stick models.

Jackbox, OUYA, and several other top Fire TV games just went on sale this morning

When it rains it pours because a bunch of top Amazon Fire TV games just went on sale this morning. I couldn’t find any reason as to why all of these games went on sale at the same time, but if you’ve been looking for something to play on your Fire TV or Fire TV Stick, here’s your chance to pick up some new high quality games at a discount. I personally recommend Machinarium, which is a fun tranquil puzzle game with beautifull art that hardly ever goes on sale. Remember, the Fire TV Game Controller is still on sale for $39.99 if you need one for the game you want to play.

Update

With this unusually high number of app sales, I knew there had to be something going on and I just found it. Amazon is having a “Gather Around the Fire” promotion which includes these games.

Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick software update 5.2.4.0 makes first appearance

fire-tv-box-and-stick-update

A new software update, carrying version number 5.2.4.0 (build 565189420), just popped up on Amazon’s source code notice page. The update is currently listed under the 2nd-gen Fire TV and the 2nd-gen Fire TV Stick. There is a very good chance this update will include the new revamped user interface that is expected to arrive by the end of the year. Amazon said the new interface would come to 2nd-gen devices first, so it makes sense this new software version is currently only listed under 2nd-gen devices. Fire TV 1 and Fire TV Stick 1 devices will get the new interface later this year.

I haven’t heard of anyone getting this new update yet, so I don’t know if it’s already rolling out. Be sure to comment below if you receive this update and let us know what has changed.
