Amazon is bolstering up talent in its video game development studio, and it has two new high-profile snags: Portal designer Kim Swift and Far Cry 2 designer Clint Hocking have both joined Amazon Game Studios.
This is Soul Fjord. It’s the next game from Airtight Games, the folks behind last year’s excellent first-person puzzler Quantum Conundrum.
Everything’s in first-person. Your silent hero is equipped with a high-tech gadget that can manipulate chunks of the environment. You progress through a series of rooms, each stuffed to the brim with quirky crate-and-button-based puzzles that need solving. And an omniscient voice is talking to you the whole time.
