Online retail biggie Amazon launched its first online social game in order to challenge San Francisco based social game services provider Zynga.
The game is titled "Living Classics" and is tailored for online social networking sites like Facebook, where Zynga rose to fame.
The Seattle-based company -Amazon - newly announced its Game Studios and has big plans for it.
Amazon released a statement saying, “We know that many Amazon customers enjoy playing games, including free-to-play social games. We believe we can deliver a great, accessible gaming experience that gamers and our customers can play any time."
"Living Classics" challenges players to reunite a family of animated foxes ranging about settings from literary works such as Alice in Wonderland, King Arthur, and The Wizard of Oz- this was done to pay tribute to Amazon’s roots as a seller of digital books.
