Amazon Buys Reflexive

Reflexive Entertainment (Wik and the Fable of Souls) announces it has been acquired by Amazon.com, indicating this deal is about their distribution platform and casual gaming: "As I'm sure you can all imagine this is a very exciting day for us at Reflexive. It means we'll be able to expand our distribution network to include Amazon's amazing distribution channel. With Amazon we will bring a huge new group of customers into play. At Reflexive we have always prided ourselves on maintaining good relationships with everyone in the industry, and are excited that Amazon shares that philosophy. We intend to provide the best distribution platform anywhere, and to continue working openly with all the participants of the casual games space. Together it is our priority to continue this inclusive attitude going forward."

I know them from Ricochet primarily, been playing their versions for a long time now. I actually just picked up Ricochet Infinity via Steam for $5, at that price it's a freakin' steal.

Edit: Whoa....a .sig divider! Gonna have to remove mine now.

I know Reflexive as the name behind Swarm and Ricochet, both fun arcade games that had a lot of panache that I still play every now and then.

Typically you'd be right, but that is something the Reflexive guys have worked hard at from day one. It's more than words- they're well respected in the casual gaming scene for working openly with people.

This is the kind of PR happy talk Suits conjure up when they're sleep deprived and malnourished.

If you don't like where gaming is heading, stop giving your money to the people who are taking it in that direction.
