It's a weak one today guys - but that's ok as tomorrow's episode (episode 900!) will seem even stronger in comparison. Cunning. And at least we can console ourselves that we're not being attacked by marauding hoards of the undead. Can you actually kill a Zombie, BTW? Answers to firstname.lastname@example.org please.
I simply must include the skill description verbatim here as it's so perfect; "Choice of the Dragon is a thrilling interactive novel by Dan Fabulich and Adam Strong-Morse, where your choices control the story. The game is fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination. Battle heroes, wizards, and rival dragons in your insatiable thirst for gold and infamy. Start by dominating a local tribe of goblins, then usurp the kingdom, defending and expanding your despotic regime to annex neighboring kingdoms, incinerating the peasants in their thatched-roof cottages. O, mighty dragon, spread your wings and let your shadow fall over the terrorized nation beneath you! Play as male, female, neither, or an undetermined gender. Find and seduce another dragon to be your mate. Kidnap princesses for good conversation, to bait heroes, or for a light snack. Isn't it a little sexist to always kidnap princesses? Kidnap a prince instead. Ransack holy temples, blaspheming against vengeful gods." Nice sound-effects too.
It's a bit of a shame that, according to the intro, you've committed unspeakable crimes to end up in the infamous Alcatraz - that puts a bit of a dampener on this otherwise excellent audio escape adventure - but give it a go nonetheless.
Also by RP Apps, today's game combines a general knowledge quiz with a race to certain death (certain death if you're as good at general knowledge questions as I am, anyway). So good luck outwitting Alexa and outrunning the ever-advancing peril…
Today's quick additional episode is a plea for demos (sent to email@example.com please) thinly disguised as a public information broadcast about successfully playing this very show on your Echo. Blatant, I know.
And another great skill demo today from the ever-helpful Thomas Domville (firstname.lastname@example.org). Taking less than ten minutes, he gives us a tour of this nice, concise audio-adventure game. If you'd like to contribute a demo or two, please do by emailing me at email@example.com. Want to give me some feedback or suggest a skill for us to cover? Drop me a line. Got any good jokes? Ditto. Want to tell all your friends about Dot to Dot? Don't email me - email them. Or send them a tweet. Or go round and knock on their doors and tell them all about it over a cup of tea and a piece of cake.
Today we have a really nice immersive audio-adventure skill by RP Apps. Can you track down the Hell Hounds in the Caves of Obliverax? What's the significance of the partially obscured code in the wooden chest? Why is it so satisfying asking a range of retorical questions in these shownotes and then adding further redundancy by asking for answers on a postcard? Answers on a postcard please.
