Amazon.com Inc. (AMZN) - Get Report quietly purchased GameSparks, a backend as a service platform for game developers, for $10 million, Tech Crunch reported Friday, as the company looks to build out its gaming capabilities. 

Tech Crunch spoke with two GameSparks investors who said they could not comment on the company due to non-disclosure agreements they signed.
