Amazon developing social game

Wednesday, 20th July 2011 00:47 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Amazon has engaged the services of noted RPG designer Jonathan Tweet to design a social game.

BusinessInsider reports Tweet updated his LinkedIn profile to reflect a new role as game designer and producer at Amazon.

Tweet confirmed the appointment but would not give further details; Amazon has issued no comment on the matter.

The lauded pen-and-paper RPG designer made significant contributions to the third edition of Dungeons & Dragons, as well as Ars Magica and Everway. He has worked in social gaming before, designing Gamehouse titles for Facebook.

Amazon’s new Android App Store in conjunction with this project suggests the online retail giant views digital gaming as an increasingly relevant product.
