Starfinder On Alexa: Reforged!

Monday, April 13, 2020

If you’ve been following the ground-breaking arrival of Starfinder on Amazon Alexa, I have some exciting news—earlier this month, a meatier, shinier version of “Scoundrels in the Spike”, my adventure adapted for Alexa’s voice game—was released to the entire world!

You can now play through the game on Amazon’s cloud-based voice service as two additional player characters, Obozaya, the reptilian vesk soldier and Keskodai, the bug-like shirren mystic.

Those of you familiar with Obozaya will find that she’s just as tough, honorable, and devastating in close-quarters combat in the voice game as she is in the tabletop RPG. Those who fancy Keskodai will find that he’s a wise healer who still absolutely revels in meeting new people and gaining new experiences. Obozaya and Keskodai join the existing cast of player characters: Navasi, the human envoy; Quig, the ysoki mechanic; and Iseph, the android operative. Raia, the witty and curious lashunta technomancer, is available to join players as an adventuring buddy.

The pilot episode also now includes a streamlined introduction, which cuts down the time it takes to get straight into the science-fantasy action. Plus, more achievements! The re-released pilots includes a few more, bringing the total to 12. I won’t spoil them for you, but fewer than 1% of players have unlocked the “skitter hater” award.

Simply say “Alexa, play Starfinder!” to check out the new goods. Don’t forget that anyone with a mobile device can download the Amazon Alexa app and play the voice-based game, too!

And if this is the first you’re hearing about this project, check out the details!

We’re prouder than a pack of helpful skittermanders at how well the pilot episode has been received so far. But don’t take my word for it—over on Amazon.com, the episode is rated on average 4.7 out of 5 stars, with more than 290 total reviews! One review states: “I am a new player to Starfinder and this app is such a great way to get familiar with the typical gameplay and is great fun too! I can’t wait for more!”

As for the timing of the release of the voice game’s premium episodes, we don’t have news to share yet. The novel coronavirus is impacting our production schedule, but we’re working to realign it as fast as is responsibly possible. As soon as we have information to share on that front, we will!

Until then, Alexa, let’s play some Starfinder!

Not for the foreseeable future. Paizo is partnering with Amazon to create this product. It is exclusive to Alexa. But as the genre grows, other platforms might open.
