Amazon has teamed up with Warner Bros. to bring a new Batman v Superman promotion to the Amazon Echo. Called The Wayne Investigation, the promotion takes the form of a voice-powered choose-your-own-adventure game, which tasks you with solving the murder of Bruce Wayne's parents.
The Wayne Investigation features several characters that you can question in order to solve the crime. As you progress, you'll find clues and receive guidance from your Amazon Echo. From Variety:
Altogether, users are given up to 37 decisions throughout the game, which can take anywhere from 5 to 40 minutes, depending on the decisions of the player. And of course, all of this is done as a pure audio game, thanks to the Echo's voice recognition and speech synthesis. To launch the game, users simply have to say: "Alexa, open the Wayne Investigation."
The game was written by writers from DC Comics, along with people from Cruel & Unusual Films, the production company of Batman v Superman director Zach Snyder. The Wayne Investigation is available as one of Alexa's skills, which can be found in the Amazon Alexa app.
