GameSalad unlocks development tools on Kindle Fire

Save $299 if you develop for Amazon's tablets

GameSalad unlocks development tools on Kindle Fire

Development tool GameSalad has announced it's working with Amazon to help bolster the Kindle Fire game development community.

The two parties have come together to utilise GameSalad's suite of dev tools, handing over access to studios looking to develop titles for Amazon's range of Kindle Fire tablets.

It's a notable discount for developers, given GameSalad's professional suite normally comes in at $299, though the move is clearly designed to deliver exclusive content for Amazon's tablets in the run up to Christmas.

Open doors, get discovered

"GameSalad is excited to work with Amazon to make it easier for developers to create games for Fire OS and get them discovered in the Amazon Appstore," said Steve Felter, GameSalad CEO.

Felter went on to note that the deal with Amazon should present consumers with a broad range of indie games as it "open[s] doors for developers and non-developers alike to harness their creativity and bring their games to the Kindle Fire family."

GameSalad will also provide developers with a free one month GameSalad Pro license for each Fire OS game submitted by November 30.

This license allows developers to deploy and monetise their apps on additional mobile marketplaces.

The news comes just as Amazon unveiled a new developer program designed to help games gain visibility on its platforms in the run up to Christmas.
