Paizo has announced that the first three episodes of Starfinder are now available. The multi-part interactive audio adventure is played through Amazon’s Alexa-enabled devices and will give players the chance to explore a futuristic science-fantasy world voiced by some of the industry’s top talents.
This is super exciting news for fans of Starfinder, but if you are new to the game, no worries! Previous experience with source material is not required. To play, all you have to do is tell Alexa: “Alexa, play the Starfinder game.”
The game features 13 voice actors including Nathan Fillion (Castle and Firefly) and Laura Bailey (The Last of Us Part II). The Audible Studios team, put together the cast and recorded over 745 pages and took a combined 125 hours in the studio to record giving players 13 hours of gameplay to enjoy.
“We’re thrilled to bring together creative sci-fi storytellers with top industry voice talent, to offer an unfounded immersive audio game experience,” says VP of Amazon Entertainment Devices and Services Marc Whitten. “The casual gaming category is becoming increasingly popular and the Starfinder skill for Alexa is a great example of how audio and voice-enabled entertainment is evolving to entertain the masses.”
With the world as it is at the moment, being able to bring together a gaming group can be hard. With Alexa’s help you can enjoy a robust gaming experience on your own. You can get the pilot for free and episodes 1 to 3 for $1.99 (or the full season for $9.99) of Starfinder now on any Alexa-enabled device, including Amazon Echo, Fire TV, and the Alexa mobile app. The game allows you to pick it up and put it down whenever you like; resuming your play at your leisure.
