They made a mini Skyrim thing for Alexa, if you say open Skyrim it should work, hopefully it's available in the UK. It's an rpg thing.

Okay just added a new one.
I've not tried the mini skyrim game, yet, but I did add trivia hero, which is lots of fun.

We also plan to buy some echo buttons, which  be interesting.


Plus, updated notes on Dark cidtadel since the bug which made the game virtually unplayable is fixed, and its now quite  a fun gamebook adventure.

Okay added a few more to the list in the article's room which (for those who just see this post and not the hole topic), can be Found here

New skills include Animal letters, boys and girls names letters (both by the same maker as Harry potter letters), Yes majesty which is either a loving tribute to Yes sire or a bare faced ripoff depending on your perspective, and  the   echo button skill Trivial pursuit tap.

Okay added a few more to the article, particularly the official harry potter quiz, which is nice but frustrating and the daily connection.

I got an Echo recently, and recommend some others, here's two trivia ones:
Wake word, open pointless, this one's based on the UK tv show and it's surprisingly accurate. In fact this is what inspired me to even start looking for games in the firstplace. Then I remembered your topics Dark.
Wake word, open popcorn quiz: this one's a movie quiz, with ranks, double point and triple point rounds, true or false and sometimes it's very amusing if you know the answer is true and gives you a false one. Sometimes it says use app for clues but you honestly don't have to, as it's more about knowledge. This also goes back to movies from the 40's at points, and will suddenly throw out random category rounds at you like weston or mystery or animation movies, and some of them can be really obscure! Be warned, this is very addictive I got stuck in a hour long loop before I was able to pull myself away, this really has that "one more go" feel about it.

Wow Aaron didn't know there was a pointless skill, my lady loves pointless so she'll enjoy that one.
I also did look at popcorn quiz a while ago, but it had pictorial questions, unless that was another one.

Nope, when I realised I'd be updating this a fair few times,I turned post one into an article in the articles room with lots of headings and such to make finding things easier.
You can find that here I just post in this topic whenever I add new games to the list, speaking of which, I've just added pointless.

@Dark the pictorial questions don't really matter because they relie on your knowledge anyway. Yes it says use the Alexa app for clues but they honestly do not take away from the experience. It's nothing like "what's in this picture", it's just asking who's directing or starring in what film, and if you get an answer wrong, it still tells you the actual result, so I'd say this one's pretty playable.

Hmmm, when i looked at the ap it sounded as if the questions were! indeed along the lines of "whoes in this picture", but I'll give the game a try and see.

I've just also updated the games list with a few new entries, the rather pointless dungeons of doom, the silly but fun dungeon crawler (a game I've wanted to play for a while now), and the quite good but short star commander.

It'll say something like, and this isn't a real qote but an example, "cars 3, relesaed in 2016, was directed by Aaron from audiogames.net, true or false" and of course it'd be false. When you say false, it'll tell you the actual director. It does the same with actors, but the ones that are tricky are the film tagline ones as I don't know much about taglines.

Just added another one, The vortex, and its bloody awesome, actually I considered creating a separate topic for it in new releases as its a more major game than a lot of other things on Alexa.

You start off in a cryo pod on a spaceship where you are still frozen but can interact with the ship’s systems through a neural link, this includes robots and computers. You do this with voice commands, instructing robots to do things like “Examine the rope”, or “look around the cargo bay”
There are however two things that make this really different to your usual interactive fiction/coya game, and not just the sound or the really intelligent use of Alexa voices.
Lots of tasks take time, that is real world time. Send a robot to look for supplies it’ll be back in 6 hours, ask a robot to hack the computer? It’ll take four hours, with a notification when they’re done.

Some tasks use multijell, that is robot fuel, which you can find by salvaging the ship, you can use multijell to create overdrive batteries and speed matters up, but obviously you have a limited amount.

More tasks to get multijell appear every real world 8 hours.

So, this is sort of like land of livia in space, with multiple robots instead of one hero, accept for one other thing.
Personality. All the robots have slightly different personalities, from poppas Beta to snarky alpha. They also use the default Alexa voices for different English languages, for example Gamma is the Australian female, whilst Beta is the English male. Oddly enough this makes things really atmospheric, and also gives you an amazingly nice sense of the different robots tasks and priorities.

I have seen some reviews on Amazon say you can pay to buy multijell rather than grind from daily tasks, but I’ve not seen options for that as yet, which possibly means its not available in the Uk.
Either way its a game I suspect I'll be playing for a while, and nice to see a larger more serious project on Alexa.

Added three more, feel the pressure, train your brain odd one out, and trivia blast.

Feel the pressure and Trivia blast are both pretty cool trivia quizzes with lots of sounds and very good responsiveness.

I've never played you don't know jack, but there are plenty of trivia games including several really fun ones such as feel the pressure and trivia hero.

Hope you like The vortex, along with dungeon adventure and six swords its one of the most serious games I've found on Alexa.

So normally would edit the post, but I found a new one; Movie challenge.  Gives you movie quotes and you have to guess the movie.  can do either all movies or kids.  Quite fun.  Not sure how much variety there is yet though.
Just got into a heated battle with Harry Potter letters, can already tell I'm going to enjoy this one.

I didn't see runescape quest: one piercing note on the article so thought I would mention it here, in case it wasn't already. It is a cyoa audio detective drama that on a single playthrough took me a couple hours to complete. I highly recommend it as it has good audio and is fully voice acted.
