More About Lost Within
Survive attacks from frightening Inhabitants and unravel the sordid history of a notorious institution in Lost Within, a first-person survival game that takes place in Weatherby Asylum.
Escape an asylum with a tortured past by fighting or fleeing the monstrous Inhabitants–the twisted vestiges of Weatherby’s former victims. If you can manage to survive, you must confront a legendary serial killer who stalks you through the abandoned ruins.
Scavenge through the ruins and create makeshift weapons to strike back at the Inhabitants. Or, conserve your resources and employ stealth to sneak past the lurking horrors. When all else fails, run frantically through the asylum searching desperately for a place to hide!
The asylum itself seems to be trying to tell you something. Strange visions of the past reveal buried secrets—horrors that are now coming alive all around you. To get outside, you must solve a series of dark mysteries on your way to discovering the shattering secret that led to the asylum's shuttering two decades ago. All the while, the legendary serial killer who supposedly inhabits the ruins reveals himself to be no myth. The “madhouse madman” knows you are here.
He is closing in on you, and his howls of rage seem to shake the very walls. You must find the exit, but choose carefully. There are many doors, but there is only one way out.
The galaxy's most unlikely heroic duo are here! Starting today, Fire Tablet owners can travel to Big Moon and play as reluctant heroes E, a naive intergalactic traveling salesman, and CASI, a luggage drone that just might be the ultimate weapon. Players are sure to get swept up in this unexpected, co-op adventure that will put all of their puzzle-solving skills to the test.
Download the game here from the Amazon Appstore.
In Tales From Deep Space, E and CASI find themselves on Big Moon, a bizarre space station filled with outlandish denizens, speeding hovercrafts, chickens in spacesuits, and Meeks - the mysterious group behind an uprising that has the entire station up in arms.
To unravel the nefarious plot, E and CASI must work together to utilize each character's unique traits that, when combined, help solve all of Big Moon's puzzles and objectives. Players can switch between E and CASI in single player, and in a feature exclusive to Kindle Fire HDX and 2014 Fire tablets, they can play in local, two-player co-op where each player controls the reluctant heroes individually on their own tablets.
Also, be sure to check out "Lox of Luck," the free prequel comic from Amazon Game Studios and comiXology available here. Always in strange places at strange times, E is just trying to do his job in a world that seems determined to make him a hero.
We are incredibly excited to introduce E and CASI to our customers. Check out the comic and game today and begin your adventures in deep space!
By all accounts, it's been an ambitious year for Amazon. The online retail juggernaut has put its vast resources to work, fighting its way into new ventures and crowded markets, and becoming something of a Swiss Army knife in the process – doing just about everything.
To trace the beginnings of Amazon's interest in the game business, you need to go back a long way--at least to the holiday season of 1999. That's when the company, best known at the time as "Earth's largest bookstore," began offering video games for then-popular machines such as the Sega Dreamcast, Nintendo 64, and Neo Geo.
