The Amazon Echo Adds A Choose-Your-Own Batman Adventure

Well, this is novel – you can now use your Amazon Echo to investigate the murder of Bruce Wayne’s parents (Joe Chill did it right?).

Produced as a tie-in for the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, “The Wayne Investigation” is an interactive experience, a radio play where you are the lead character arriving in Gotham City mere days after the death of the Waynes. You can question people, make judgement calls, and follow the trail on the path to discovering who the killer is (it’s gotta be Joe Chill).

Depending on your decisions, the game can take anywhere between 5-40 minutes to play.

To play “The Wayne Investigation”, you need to enable it within the “Skills” section of the Alexa app. Then simply say “Alex, open the Wayne Investigation,” and your path (to discovering that it was Joe Chill) will begin.

It’s pretty neat, almost like a Holodeck simulation without the, y’know, Holodeck part. It’s also the first time Amazon Echo has been used in this manner. We’re guessing it won’t be the last.
