Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment have teamed up with Amazon for a new choose-your-own-adventure “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” game called “The Wayne Investigation,” which will be available on the Amazon Echo smart loudspeaker or Amazon Fire TVs with Alexa integration. The game places players in Gotham just days after the Waynes’ murder.
According to Variety, the game will use Amazon’s personal assistant Alexa as the player’s ears and eyes, “guiding them through multiple rooms, giving them choices and helping them to find valuable clues.” With up to 37 decisions available throughout, the game can take up to 40 minutes, depending on the user. It also includes a series of music, sound effects and multiple characters. The game begins when users enable it within the “Skills” section and say: “Alexa, open the Wayne Investigation.”
The story hails from head writers at DC Comics and the minds behind Zack Snyder’s production company Cruel & Unusual Films.
“We’re thrilled to work with Warner Brothers and DC Comics to bring ‘The Wayne Investigation’ to our Alexa-enabled devices,” Rob Pulciani, Director of Alexa, said in a statement. “This is the first Alexa skill to use a combination of produced audio assets and Alexa technology.”
