Kindle gets first indie game

Kindle, the famous ‘digital ink’ e-reader, is now hosting its first indie-developed game, in what owner Amazon is hoping will ignite interest in device as a games platform.

Weighing at 343.4kB, the black-and-white strategy title Triple Town has been built by indie outfit Spry Fox – a studio co-founded by former Xbox Live Arcade portfolio manager David Edery.

Essentially a match-three game, Triple Town currently has none of the discoverability issues that affects many App Store developers – with Apple’s platform having just recently published its 300,000th application.
