Just noticed this article:

https://techcrunch.com/2016/08/05/alexa-tool/#pt0-43588
"Amazon wants more people to develop speech-based adventure games for Alexa"

Not having tried this particular authoring tool, it *looks* very simplistic, probably not much fun.

OTOH, I could see how using Amazon/Google/whatever speech recognition APIs could be super awesome for IF games, and make games far more accessible. I know that for a purist, this may be considered heresy, but I was wondering if there has been any work in the field toward that direction. I admit I check into IF only very sporadically, I've been practically been living under a stone.

Thanks

It might be cool for a pure conversation game, such as you interrogating a murder suspect, or talking on the phone to a stalker.
