Amazon, Warner Bros., and DC Comics have united to deliver a one of a kind experience using the Amazon Echo.
Titled The Wayne Investigation, the best described as audio adventure game features you as an investigator who is trying to get to the bottom of who killed Bruce Wayne's parents. Amazon's smart speaker assistant, also known as Alexa, is your interface into this world, and will guide you from place to place, presenting you with options and decisions along the way.
“We’re thrilled to work with Warner Brothers and DC Comics to bring “The Wayne Investigation” to our Alexa-enabled devices,” said said Rob Pulciani, Director of Alexa. “This is the first Alexa skill to use a combination of produced audio assets and Alexa technology.”
According to the team behind it, there are up to 37 decisions in the game, and it can take up to 40 minutes to complete, but it all depends on the choices you make. The game includes multiple characters that you will have to question and a multitude of clues to find, and was written by writers from both DC Comics and Cruel & Unusual Films, Zack Snyder's production company.
It definitely is a unique project, and one that at least promises to be novel. The Wayne Investigation is out now. All you have to do is enable it and ask Alexa to "open the Wayne Investigation".
