We are all looking forward to Batman v Superman when it hits theaters in less than a month. To keep you busy while you are waiting, Amazon has teamed up with Warner Bros. and DC Comics, delivering a unique promotion for the movie.
Anyone with an Amazon Echo smart loudspeaker or an Amazon Fire TV with Alexa integration will be able to take part in “The Wayne Investigation”.
“The Wayne Investigation” is a choose-your-own-adventure game, where users will be transported into Gotham shortly after Bruce Wayne’s parents were murdered. Amazon’s personal assistant, Alexa, will function as your ears and eyes throughout the investigation. You will be guided through numerous rooms, while having to make choices as you attempt to uncover one clue after another. Can you solve this case?
Think of it as an interactive radio adventure that will have supporting music, sound effects and different characters to add to the realism. Right now users have up to 37 decisions to make in the entire game, which could last from 5 minutes to 40 minutes, and it is played entirely through audio. Just enable it within the “skills” section of the Alexa app, and then say: “Alexa, open the Wayne Investigation.” Then get solving on that case.
