Brad Becker knows just a little bit conversational computers. The CEO of developer Sentient Play was formerly the Chief Design Officer on IBM Watson’s project – a natural language computer that famously competed on the TV game show “Jeopardy.”
An explosive secret
The game can even be played on the Apple Watch.
And Becker has taken that knowledge to game design with the new title KOMRAD, which is available to download on the App Store now.
The interactive game starts out with an interesting premises – you’re messaged by a stranger who says your identity has been stolen and is being used by online hackers. They steer you toward a supposedly abandoned computer that has information the criminals will trade for your freedom.
But the situation gets even more complicated when connecting to the computer. Named KOMRAD, it’s a long-dormant Soviet supercomputer with a possibly nuclear secret.
KOMRAD is designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and all iPad models. It can also be played on the Apple Watch. It costs $2.99.
If you’ve enjoyed similar titles – like any of the games from the Lifeline series – KOMRAD is definitely recommended. It’s a fun and engaging interactive chat game that will have you guessing until the end.
