Star Audition is now live on Kickstarter through March 19; it’s the latest game from Virsix Games, co-founded by Nolan Bushnell and Zai Ortiz. Called the world’s first act-it-out party game, Star Audition is a tabletop game that offers enhanced gameplay options through the smart speakers Amazon Alexa and Google Home.
The game transports players to a Hollywood movie audition, where they take on roles and perform dialogues randomly selected from a multitude of scripts across a variety of film genres.
That not only includes scripts from today and the Golden Age of movies because Virsix is also crowdsourcing scripts on Kickstarter. Along with letting fans become a part of the game, backing the project on Kickstarter will give them early access.
