Long-time iOS publisher Crescent Moon Games is making the jump to Android very soon. They will be releasing three games initially to the Amazon Appstore: the catapult game Siegecraft, the open-world RPG Aralon: Sword and Shadow, and papercraft platformer Paper Monsters. Siegecraft was already released on Google Play, self-published by Blowfish Studios, but Crescent Moon will be publishing the Amazon Appstore version. The Crescent Moon-published titles will be exclusive to the Amazon Appstore, for purposes of trying to build a following on Android initially on that store. Over time, Crescent Moon could expand their portfolio to Google Play. For now, the games will just release on Amazon’s store.
While the games will support the Kindle Fire, they will not be exclusive to the device, so any Android user whose phone works with the game can buy it. Other titles could make their way down the pipeline depending on the success of the first batch of titles, though there is nothing to officially confirm with the next batch of titles. Aralon has already been submitted, with Siegecraft and Paper Monsters planned to be submitted in the next week, so the games should be hopefully showing up very soon.
