Portal designer Kim Swift and Far Cry 2 lead designer Clink Hocking have confirmed they've joined Amazon Game Studios as senior designers to create games for Kindle Fire and the newly announced Amazon Fire TV.

Swift joined Amazon this month and is best known for her work on Portal, but went on to work with Airtight Games on Quantum Conundrum.

Hocking has been at Amazon since February, having previously worked on Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory and Far Cry 2 at Ubisoft. He later joined LucasArts and Valve leaving the latter in December 2013.

Amazon appears to be making a considerable investment in its Amazon Game Studios development team, which has already cranked out Fire TV exclusive Sev Zero. Many more titles are on the way, as you can see in the trailer below.
