As VentureBeat reports Amazon has launched ‘Luna‘, which:
enables Amazon-device owners to play games on their connected TVs from a remote server. This includes Amazon’s Fire TV, but it also works with PC and Mac. Amazon even built a web app to ensure that Luna can work on iOS outside of the confines of the Apple App Store. This separates it from Google Stadia and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, which are trying to launch apps on iPhone and iPad. Android support is coming later.
Wired reports that “More than 100 games will be available at launch, stretching across genres – action, adventure and platformer. These include Resident Evil 7, Control, Panzer Dragoon; A Plague Tale, Innocence and The Surge 2, Yooka-Laylee and The Impossible Lair Iconoclasts, GRID, ABZU and Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons.”
Progressive Web App
Engadget explains how they get around Apples restrictions that apply to similar services like Google Stadia, which is due to the fact it’s not a native app but rather a Progressive Web Application.
