Subject 17 is a 3D adventure game for Android where pointing and clicking is replaced by the use of your voice. After waking up in an unfamiliar bedroom, a young girl soon realises that she has no recollection of how she arrived there. Played as a retro-style 'escape the room' game, Subject 17 allows you to guide the character and determine her actions by speaking to her and suggesting her what to do. Explore the environment, collect the items, resolve the puzzles and help the protagonist retrace her memory.
The demonstration demo for Subject 17 is out now on the Android Market. Made as a student project, the concept revolves around the idea of using the Android voice recognition facility to simulate an experience where the player interacts with the game character by talking to her.
