Amazon has forayed into the social gaming segment with the launch of a new Facebook game – Living Classics. The company has also announced a new division - Amazon Game Studios, which will be releasing more social games in the future.
Amazon's first title on the social network on Tuesday and is available for free to all Facebook users. Living Classics is basically a simple literature-themed puzzle game. Users are shown illustrations of scenes based on classic books. To bag points, which are known as cash and coins in the game, users need to spot and click moving objects on the screen.
The game introduces a number of storybook characters, including some from Alice in Wonderland. Amazon, however, hints Classics could refer to more than just books, one of the official Living Classics Facebook fan page shows two X-Files characters.
