Amazon launches Lost Within - a new horror survival game for Fire tablets
If you’re a fan of really scary mobile games and own a Fire Phone or tablet, Amazon may have something that will get your adrenaline pumping. Lost Within, a new game out of Amazon Game Studios, has just launched in the Amazon Appstore. It’s a creepy survival game that puts you in the middle of an abandoned insane asylum, and your goal is to get out alive.
Weatherby Asylum is where all of this scariness goes down, and it’s now overtaken by monstrous Inhabitants. You can choose to go through the game by sneaking around, running away or fighting. If you choose to fight, you’ll need to create makeshift weapons out of materials lying around to thwart off the baddies. Any way you choose to play the game, it’s bound to give you a fright or two.
The building itself seems to be trying to tell you something. Strange visions of the past reveal buried secrets— terrors that are now coming alive all around you. To get out, you must solve a series of dark mysteries and discover the shattering secret that led to the asylum’s condemnation. But the legendary serial killer who is rumored to inhabit the asylum is no myth … and he knows you are here. His howls of rage seem to shake the very walls. You must escape, but be careful. Though there are many doors, there is only one way out.
Unfortunately, the game is currently only available on the Fire Phone, Fire tablets (2013 and newer) and iOS devices. We’re really hoping Amazon will soon open up compatibility to all Android devices, but for now, it’s unavailable if you don’t own one of those compatible devices. Lost Within can be yours for $6.99 from Amazon.
