St Noire is available exclusively on Amazon at $40, it is a new taste for the game trends. X2 Games created the game to relatively collaborate the voice commands and cinematic voice performance with the use of Amazon’s Alexa.
On July 18, Bushnell and Ortiz took the panel to welcome questions and comments on the launch. The panel was moderated by Collabsco’s Val Vacante at San Diego Comic-Con: Gamifying Technology: The future of Gaming. The panel extended from 11.45 am to 12.45 am in room number 6BCF, reports Venture beats.
St. Noire has a number of voice actors delivering it the audio versatility of 2500 lines of Spoken Dialogue with extreme voice modulation to add drama and breath in more life to the real game-like situation. It is the world’s first fully voice-acted board game designed for Amazon Alexa. The detective murder mystery turns to the game adds stirring thrill to the power of the game’s broad design and skillful creation.
The player will be capable of taking up the role of a hardboiled detective who is out to solve a murder mystery in the city of St Noire. The game can be played in multiplayer mode where you will function as a team to solve the mystery or you can even go Solo on the venture quest. Provided you have a sense of the situation and can look for clues out of the way, you can easily find out the character with fault and eventually solve the case with the murderer being Found.
To make sure that no two games overlap, the storyline of each has been kept unique and the murderer identity has been randomized in the best way possible.
