Challenge

As the second season of Westworld came to an end, HBO wanted to give fans a reason to talk about the show, even when it wasn’t on air.

360i created The Maze, a fully immersive Amazon Alexa voice game that allowed fans to navigate Westworld using only their voice.

Solution

With 36 voice actors, 11,000 lines of script, 60 player-gernerated paths 32 ways to die and two hours of unique gameplay, The Maze is the most ambitious and immersive voice game created to date.

It was produced with the show’s creators and talent Jeffrey Wright and Angela Sarafyan.

Results

In the first week, over 10,000 fans tried to solve The Maze and the game generated over 500 million earned media impressions thanks to Easter eggs hidden in the game just for press.

The Maze pushes the boundaries for voice device content, bridging the gap between new technology and the oldest form of storytelling.

To play and explore Westworld for yourself, simply say “Alexa, open Westworld.”
