Marvel’s Spider-Man

Marvel and PlayStation had an incredible task ahead of them: deliver a blockbuster Spider-Man experience in a media landscape overflowing with costumed heroes and big budget video games.

Music is the ultimate motivator – whether you are the greatest in the game preparing to play or a fan getting ready to watch.

Amazon Echo Escape

Lock the internet into a room with only Amazon Echo to help them escape.


As the top attraction at New York Comic Con, Amazon Echo Escape gamified the smart home by creating the world’s first escape experience powered by voice. Set in the world of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, players fully exploited Alexa’s capabilities to gain intel, crack codes, control smart-home devices, interact with live actors and ultimately

set themselves free.


The experience culminated in a Twitch broadcast featuring top gaming personalities CaptainSparklez, Swiftor and OMGitsfirefoxx. Each tested their wits live while over 1 million online participants intervened – choosing either to help or hinder their progress.
