A voice-based version of the Starfinder Roleplaying Game is available to play on Alexa devices through Amazon’s cloud-based voice service. Fans of the series who have an Alexa- enabled device just have to say “Alexa, play Starfinder!” to beam straight into an adapted version of “Scoundrels in the Spike,” an adventure written for the Starfinder Beginner Box.
The adaptation script was written by James L. Sutter, former Starfinder Creative Director and an amazing author whose work really makes this voice experience shine.
Incredible voice actors, sound effects, and music further make this game sing. Expect rich soundscapes of Absalom Station and tense combat with space goblins. This project has brought Starfinder’s world to life in a bold new way.
The rules Alexa uses to run the adventure are similarly adapted from the Beginner Box.
Starfinder fans will recognize the player character options as Iseph the iconic operative, Quig the iconic mechanic, and Navasi the iconic envoy. What’s more, Raia the iconic technomancer can serve as a best friend and sidekick in these adventures. Simply put, there’s a lot to recognize and love if you’re already a fan of Starfinder. If you’re new to the game or even to tabletop RPGs in general, this experience is a fantastic gateway to a lifetime of adventure and fun
Beyond the pilot episode, Paizo and Amazon have big plans to bring more paid episodes of the Starfinder voice game to Alexa.
Some history via Forbes:
“Starfinder is the sister game to Pathfinder, which shares some direct DNA with Dungeons & Dragons. When Wizards of the Coast made the decision to stop publishing the third edition of D&D, several employees broke off from the company to form Paizo and publish a continuing edition of the rules set under the name Pathfinder.
Starfinder moves the story to space by mixing the action adventure of Star Wars and Guardians of the Galaxy with the classic tropes of fantasy. “
