“I stumbled upon this experience by accident and I was thoroughly impressed with the extremely high quality of the design. Fully voice-acted and built up with a full Dungeons and Dragons style skill, combat, and dice roll system, Cursed Painting was a joyful and curious experience all the way through this "preview" release of sorts. The sound effects and descriptive environments easily rival those of many high quality indie RPGs you might find on Steam. Playing this makes me marvel that this medium of game creation hasn't been explored to a greater degree thus far. I'll be eagerly awaiting the full release whenever it comes.”Kevin LAudio-play Dungeons & Dragons
“First, I was impressed with how easy it is to access with any Alexa device. That may not seem like a big deal to some people but I am pretty busy so I look for fun stuff that's convenient to access. Second, the narrative was genuinely engaging and not just for me but for the rest of our household as well. Highly recommended!”Helen ZbihlyjFun for the family
