Amazon Fire Phone and Fire tablets will all be getting their own exclusive games "soon"

Amazon Game Studios has announced three exclusive games for its range of Fire products, including one for its new Fire Phone. The company will be co-developing these titles with a variety of top game developers on these projects, including Elite Dangerous creators Frontier Developments and WayForward Technologies, the studio behind the Shantae and Mighty Switch Force games for Nintendo 3DS. 

WayForward will be working on Til Morning's Light, a touch-based action adventure game set in a haunted mansion in New England. Out "soon" exclusively on the Fire Phone, players will need to use the phone's pseudo-3D Dynamic Perspective to help solve puzzles and aid their exploration as they try to escape. Amazon has also said there will be light combat elements. 

Meanwhile, Tales from Deep Space is being co-developed with Frontier Developments and is exclusive to Fire tablets. This is a two-player local co-op game set in a space station called Big Moon, where players take the role of E, a travelling salesman, and his luggage drone Casi as they try to escape Big Moon when it's mysteriously thrown into lockdown. 

The last game Amazon announced was CreepStorm, a tower defence title which is also coming exclusively to Fire tablets. Co-developed with Happy Tuesday, your mission is to stop the world's most powerful vampire, so you must move your upgradable heroes into strategic positions to halt the oncoming hordes of enemies. There will also be online multiplayer matches. 

There's currently no release date or pricing for any of the announced games, but all are marked as "coming soon" on Amazon Game Studio's website.
