AMAZON’S NOT-SO-SHOCKING announcement earlier this year finally detailed the retail giant’s plans for the gaming space. Fire TV, a microconsole building on the Kindle Fire brand, is aimed at all forms of entertainment, and games will be prominent. As well as third-party hits like Minecraft and The Walking Dead, Amazon is dedicating its own development team to creating high-end new titles such as sci-fi shooter Sev Zero. The firm is also keen to get more developers behind the platform, and any proprietary tech Amazon creates will be made available to other devs.

INDIE FAVOURITE AND the tech behind some of the most popular games of the last few years, GameMaker: Studio is one of the easiest SDKs to use, allowing entry-level novices to create impressive titles. The software’s drag-and-drop interface works hand-in-hand with C-like scripting that gives devs more flexibility when building their games. It exports to mobile, PC and console and even offers tools to help with advertising and monetisation. Showcased in titles like Hotline Miami and Spelunky, the 2D development framework has been downloaded 2m times.
