HEAD GAMES (Enhanced with Bose AR)
This Sci-Fi thriller is controlled by gestures like nodding, head shaking, ducking, and turning, as well as voice. When you are contacted by mental telepathy while using the Bose device, an NSA agent guides you to communicate with head gestures to prevent an alien invasion. But the aliens want to tell you their side of the story. Who will you trust? Developed in partnership with Bose, this story experience is enhanced by Bose AR, a first-of-its-kind audio augmented reality platform.

Demo Story & App review
Interesting, and initially strange to be faced with choices that include "kiss the strange young woman who just sat down across the table from you in the restaurant, and is hurriedly demanding you kiss her". I'm sure I'm not the only person for whom kissing a female would not be the first choice of whom to kiss. But I decided, go with it woman! I will assume that the story writers will permit us to select in our own minds, in each game scenario, whether the character we are playing is heterosexual, bi or homosexual,… And male, female or gender neutral? (Or any other options that may exist but I am currently spacing on, LOL?)
Cannot wait to find out whether they will let us select a different ethnic/cultural background within a game story,… or different skill sets say for an agent? Will they eventually expand the interaction to, say, let us ask our "handler" (a.k.a. the voice in our heads) to "remind us who someone is", or "describe the room/building/location" we are in? If these interactive audio games come even halfway to matching my imagination, this should be a blast while I'm getting other real life but boring things accomplished.
This game looks to be lots of fun, however, there are accessibility issues that need to be resolved causing me to give this only a four star review rather than the five star it could have. Outside of that, game content and quality is great, and refreshing to find something different.
Enjoyable, despite some accessibility problems
I thoroughly enjoyed the demos provided with the earplay app, and I'm considering purchasing some of the stories. However, there are some accessibility issues with this version of the app.
