Toronto, ON – Pop quiz, hotshot: do you have what it takes to catch a killer? Or will the killer catch you? The chase is on in Detective X, the latest game for Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant from Budgie voice app design studio.


A choose-your-own-adventure-style thriller with roots in narrative-driven role-playing games, this interactive fiction contains additional mini-games ranging from an escape room to a bomb defusing – all seamlessly built into a Hollywood narrative of homicide detectives struggling to outsmart a serial killer.


Featuring a chilling combination of professional voice actors, sound effects, original script and soundtrack, Detective X elevates beyond the typical voice app experience to create an immersive adventure inspired by classic sci-fi films like Bladerunner and Robocop.


In a first for voice gaming, in addition to the game's launch on Amazon and Google, the Detective X original soundtrack is available on music streaming services including Spotify, Apple Music and more.


“The release of Detective X is propelling Budgie into the conversation about high-quality production values that, so far, only a handful of legacy brands have achieved in voice gaming."

– Clint McLean, founder, Budgie
