Amazon has already secured some exclusive games for its Fire Phone and Kindle Fire, and now there’s one more courtesy of Amazon Game Studios.
Tales from Deep Space is a co-op action / puzzle game starring an intergalactic space salesman named E: a simple space dude that doesn’t really know what’s going on most of the time, and he’s thoroughly average at his job. Think of him as a space version of Gil, the perpetually nervous salesman from The Simpsons.
But unlike Gil, E makes friends with CASI, a luggage drone that’s well-armed (with all the thefts that go on in airports, why don’t we have weaponized suitcases now?). E and CASI find themselves stranded together in Big Moon, a weird space station that’s populated by “Meeks,” an alien race looking to start a revolution on the station.
Players move through the station and solve puzzles by controlling E and CASI separately. However, local co-op play is available for owners of the Kindle Fire HDX and 2014 Fire tablets.
With Amazon Game Studios exclusives like this and the upcoming Til Morning’s Light, it’s getting more and more enticing for gamers to consider an Amazon Fire device as their next Android-powered purchase.
Tales from Deep Space is available for $6.99 from the Amazon App Store.
