Today Amazon announced and introduced to the world a new gaming experience for the Kindle Fire tablet – Amazon GameCircle. Amazon states, “GameCircle will make achievements, leaderboards and sync APIs accessible, simple and quick for you to integrate, and will give gamers a more seamless and entertaining in-game experience.”
Paul Ryder, Vice President of Apps, Games, and Services at Amazon states, “Our goal is to give developers great tools to quickly and easily reach new customers and keep them engaged. That’s why we’re creating easy-to-integrate APIs for features like leaderboards, achievements and sync. We also introduced In-App Purchasing API in April, allowing developers to offer a seamless 1-Click purchasing experience within their apps and games, and we’re just getting started. GameCircle gives developers the right tools to build an immersive, more entertaining experience on Kindle Fire, which will ultimately help developers grow their business.”
All in all, this service seems pretty much the same as Apple’s Game Center. For more information, check out the source link and introductory video below.
