Award winning game Party Hard arrives on the Fire TV

party-hard-new-app-game
Party Hard, winner of the Critic’s Choice award at this year’s Casual Connect Europe conference, has just been released for the 1st and 2nd-gen Amazon Fire TV. In light of the recent terrorist attacks, today’s release of this game is poor timing at the very least, given that it’s a game about mass murder. Rest assured, this game has been in development for a long time, and is following a predetermined release schedule that was set long before the recent terrorist attacks. I played an early version of this game earlier this year at Amazon’s E3 party, and it was easily one of my favorites on display. Party Hard is a game of stealth more than gore. You navigate your pixelated character through a house to quiet down party guests by stealthily stabbing them in the back. The game features 5 different characters to unlock and 19 unique levels.

Shovel Knight comes exclusively to the Amazon Fire TV

shovel-knight-header
Shovel Knight is a great game that has made its rounds on the big consoles and is now making its exclusive non-console debut on the Amazon Fire TV. The game has received high marks on every platform, garnering a Metacritic score between 85 and 92 on all gaming systems it’s been released on. In a sea of retro influenced titles, Shovel Knight stands out among the crowd by not only looking retro, but also playing as good, if not better, than the great NES side-scrolling games of our past. If you grew up playing the NES greats, you’ll pick up on influences from Mega Man, Ninja Gaiden, Zelda, Castlevania and others in Shovel Knight. Even though the game borrows from the greats, it feels fresh and doesn’t come off as derivative. Shovel Knight is included in the new Fire TV Gaming Edition, along with DuckTales: Remastered, which is not yet available. Of Course, existing Fire TV owners can also play the game.

Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number has just been released for the Fire TV and Fire TV Stick. It’s the sequel to the immensely popular game Hotline Miami. The sequel is just as violent and brutal as the first game and equally as fun to play. The new game doesn’t diverge too far from the original’s formula of killing repetition until perfection, but it’s different enough to feel fresh. The game is compatible with both the Fire TV and Fire TV Stick, making it one of the best games on the Fire TV Stick which often gets left out of big releases like this, but it does require a game controller to play.

This War of Mine released for the Amazon Fire TV — On sale for $9.99 [Expired]

this-war-of-mine-1499-999-deal

The award winning survivor game This War of Mine has just been released for the Amazon Fire TV. The game takes a unique approach to your average war games. Instead of playing as an elite soldier, you control a group of civilians trying to get by in a war stricken world. You survive by scavenging, fighting, and making decisions based not only on whether you’ll win or lose, but also on the moral consequences of your actions. For example, if you’re group is attacked for their supplies, killing your attackers may not be the best move, even though you can easily overpower them. Depending on the mental state of the people living in your shelter, it could cause your group’s moral to enter a downward spiral that leads to your inability to survive.

This War of Mine was first released for PC last year where it has received 95% positive ratings from over 10,000 reviews. It has won several awards including ones from South by Southwest, Independent Games Festival, and Time magazine. The game is currently on sale for $9.99 to celebrate its launch, which is half the PC price. It’s compatible with only the Fire TV and requires a game controller to play.
