Amazon announces 'Amazon Game Studios,' starts with a Facebook game

Amazon's evolving from a digital marketplace into a content creator as well, today announcing its first game development studio – "Amazon Game Studios" – with the launch of its first game, "Living Classics." The company's starting somewhat unremarkably with a hidden object game (which it's dubbing a "moving object game"), and it's ready for you to play on Facebook right now. There's also a trailer for the game above.

Per the announcement, the studio is also hiring. And hey, despite our reluctance to play casual games, it's hard to get upset at someone hiring game devs.
