As Amazon continues to push its hardware offerings, it needs to offer up interesting content exclusive to these devices. That being said, Amazon Game Studios today announced three games to do just that.

First up is Til Morning’s Light, a Fire phone exclusive action-adventure game set in a haunted mansion. It’s being co-developed with WayForward Technologies, perhaps best known for A Boy and His Blob on the Wii.


Next up is Tales From Deep Space, a “comic adventure” game set in, well, space.  It features two player co-op and is exclusive to Amazon’s Fire tablets.

Finally, there’s CreepStorm, a tower defense game with RPG-like character upgrade elements. This one’s also a Fire tablets exclusive.

It seems a little strange that some of these games can only be played on either a tablet or a phone, but it’s likely Amazon wants to optimize the games for each piece of hardware. It’s the only mobile player outside of traditional gaming companies that can have control over its hardware and games at the same time.
