TELLABLES CREATES INTERACTIVE STORY GAMES DESIGNED TO BE TOLD BY TALKING DEVICES.

OUR GAMES

People of all ages interact with our story games by talking to their Amazon Echo or Google Home devices. Our games are a combination of stories and puzzles. They challenge the imagination and immerse the listener in an engaging audio experience.

OUR INTERACTIVE GAME TEMPLATES

We have built a library of original interactive voice game templates that engage people of all ages.

Our Tricky Genie game template powers both the popular kid’s game Tricky Genie, as well as the challenging educational game Fake History. Our other game templates offer a wide variety of interactive audio game experiences.

One of our game templates might be just what you need to jumpstart your organization’s compelling Alexa skill or Google Assistant action. All that’s missing are your fresh ideas for content to bring your very own voice game experience to life.
