Text based RPGs on Amazon Echo or Google Home
« on: March 01, 2018, 03:35:34 PM »
Is anyone here working on or has finished a text based RPG that might work one one of these new voice recognition devices?

There are helpful tools for building apps and I just noticed this code for an echo adventure game on Github:

I don't actually have an echo but I think things can be developed without the hardware using Echosim.io

It might be a good opportunity to get content out there whilst the market for this sort of thing is uncrowded - especially if you have something already made.

All my RPGs are text-based, I'm not sure how well they'd transfer to a voice system though - it'd mess up the minigame elements etc. :/
