Marmalade Technologies has launched a brand new SDK dedicated to helping developers build games for Amazon’s family of platforms.

The new tool, Marmalade for Amazon, allows studios to publish games directly to the Amazon Appstore, as well as the new Amazon Underground app which launched earlier this month.

Devs can deploy to Fire tablets, Fire phones, Fire TV and all Android devices that have access to the Amazon Appstore. Submission to the latter is integrated into the Marmalade Hub.

The SDK also includes built-in Amazon APIs, including Amazon GameCircle, Amazon Mobile Ads, Amazon Insight and In-App Purchasing, with more APIs promised with future updates.

Any developers that have yet to use Marmalade’s tools and deploy titles to Amazon through the new SDK will be able to switch to a full Marmalade licence and deploy to other platforms.

You can find out more about Marmalade for Amazon over at the firm’s website.
