Jagex, the people who brought us the classic MMO RuneScape, have announced an audio-based murder mystery game for Amazon's Alexa. The game, RuneScape Quests: One Piercing Note, is based on a classic quest from the original RuneScape optimized to work on the audio intelligent personal assistant.
One Piercing Note is now available on the Skills section of the Alexa app for Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, and all other Alexa-enabled devices in the US and UK.
One Piercing Note is "RuneScape doing what it does best – telling stories, immersing players in an adventurous narrative and, with Amazon Alexa, we're delivering that experience in a very specific way for a great voice-enabled service." said Mark Ogilvie, Design Director at Jagex Game Studio. "Players choose their own path through the adventure, engaging in audio puzzles, investigating crime scenes, selecting how to question suspects and, ultimately, how to catch the killer."
Sounds pretty fun for what is basically the AI-enabled lovechild of a radio play and a choose-your-own adventure book.
