Wanderword just announced the launch of their brand-new interactive audio RPG demo ‘Cursed Painting’.

Cursed Painting combines the best elements of tabletop gaming, audiobooks, and open world exploration to deliver a uniquely vivid and interactive experience. Whether you’re delving deep into the mysteries of a strange medieval village, or exploring the depths of an eerie dungeon, your path is completely up to you!

As you explore you will be immersed by layers of meticulously crafted audio paired with an original fantasy score that will suck you right into the world.

We on The Cursed Painting team are huge RPG fans ourselves. Our team is made up of fantasy authors, tabletop experts, programmers, audio engineers and orchestral composers who take immersion, mechanics, and story seriously.

The Cursed Painting is a must for anyone with an affinity for exploration, adventure, and fantasy…and the demo is free! So, go and try it!

And if you had fun, consider leaving a review, it helps us immensely.

I'm looking forward to trying this. Are you all familiar with Starfinder. It's another totally awesome dramatized skill. Glad to see more and more companies getting in to this arena smile

Thank you for your kind words, Grryf!

You don't need to buy an Echo device in order to try the demo. You can simply enable the skill and play it through your mobile phone using the Amazon Alexa app.

So sad I don't have Alexa device. I hope this type of games will be open for more platforms and not limited to Alexa only. I am mostly playing on PC (steam, other platforms) and consoles or IOS devices.

Congrats on this anyway! If the game sounds exactly like that as on the trailer I am more sad I can't try it out.

Thanks Liam! It actually worked for my Alexa app on IOS. Wow! This experience was great! My questions:
1. Why this is in mono?
2. Why the sound is resampled to something like 22 KHZ?


Besides that this is just AVESOME! Do you know anything like that with that great complex mechanics and sound design?
I think I want to go deeper in to things like that but this audio quality is not that high as I expected sadly.

Starfinder was also in mono. I think all skills do that, though I'm not 100 percent sure.

Thank you so much!

Actually, there are a few ways to play this without owning an Alexa device. You can install the Amazon Alexa app on Windows 10 or on your mobile phone.

Just make sure to enable the skill beforehand at:

Sadly the Alexa app for windows is not available in Poland. I am happy the IOS version works great!
Guys, when you wants to relase that fully? You've got me on the list as I am so interested in it as a huge fan of RPGs!

I just wish the quality of the audio could be the same as on the trailer.

Awesome that you got it running!
The sound quality is limited by Alexa's hardware. Alexa devices are limited to 48kbps stereo files, therefore are all audio files played at 48kbps regardless of your device. We chose to sacrifice the second channel in order to make the experience a little bit better.

Hi Simon!

Right now it's only available at Amazon Alexa, but in the future it might be avaliable on other plattforms such as Android and iOS.
