Living Classics is the first social game from Amazon Game Studios, a developer a stealthily birthed from the online retailer.

Amazon – which boasts an Android marketplace and direct download service along with more traditional retail offerings – believes its “know-how” equips it to “deliver a great, accessible gaming experience that gamers and our customers can play any time”. So it launched a social games developer. As you do. They’re hiring, too.

Living Classics is playable now on Facebook, and is the debut title of this new development team. It’s a “moving object game” set in animated illustrations from classic stories.

Here is the launch trailer for this gem.
