This episode of The Story Told Podcast features the game “The Cursed Painting” written and developed by Wanderword. Join Logan as he Henrik Lindfors and Peter Zetterberrg discus this innovative and exciting new style of gaming.


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.

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!

My boys and I love this game! I could see this game being played for hours, especially since we all have to stay home! This is a great way to exercise the imagination.


Really impressive how well this works. Great fun

About The Game

What are the differences between the background choices?

All backgrounds will have their unique flair to the narrative throughout the game, small story snippets depending on what your starting choice.
The thief starts with a bonus to Agility.
The adventurer starts with a bonus to Toughness.
And the Noble starts with a bonus to Power.

Are there special attacks in the game?

Sure there is!
At level three in any statistic, you’ll gain access to an ability, these will improve once you gain access to level five in any statistic.
Agility will allow you to perform a blinding strike in combat.
Power will allow you to perform a Power attack in combat.
Toughness will unlock regeneration which allows you to regain a bit of health after each combat.

In Game Commands

How do I know what my statistics are?

Try saying “Check Stats“.

Can I reroll a new character?

Sure! Restart the game at any time by saying “Restart”. This will, however, reset your entire progress, but allow you to try out other backgrounds and choices.

I totally missed an important piece of description!

You can say “Repeat” at anytime to have the Storyteller repeat its last couple of sentences.

Am I stuck in a dungeon until I finish it?

You can always say “Leave Dungeon” if you want to return to the surface.

How do I manage my equipment?

Say “Open Inventory” and equip newly found items from there.

I am on the brink of death!

You can increase your health by saying “Drink Healing Potion” – If you’re all out of them, try finding somewhere to sleep.

In a worst case scenario, try returning to the game in a while, you will regain health slowly over time while you’re not playing.
