Here is a unique genre for you, microphone controlled games. Believe or not voice control games are super fun! As a hard-core gamer, I’m surprised to find voice recognition games too late.
RELAXING GAMES < For relaxation.
Microphone implementation in games is highly rare. So, when you find a good voice powered game, consider yourself lucky.
10 best voice control games:
1. Radio General
Radio General is a revolutionary simulation real time strategy game that’s played with nothing but a microphone.
You can’t see your units, instead you talk with them over the radio! As you receive verbal reports, you’ll issue orders back. The war is confusing, and you must give the best orders possible according to the information you get from radio.
This is the perfect WW2 simulation you’ll ever play.
2. Strange Aeons
You are stuck in a gnostic cyber-hell matrix. Only way out is to chat with an AI through the microphone.
It’s a scary game but also very artistic. So, if you’re okay with playing a game you’ve never imagined before, Strange Aeons is a way to go.
Its review are overwhelmingly positive but Steam don’t display it because there are only few.
3. In Verbis Virtus
In Verbis Virtus is a fantasy adventure unlike any other. You cast spells using your real voice for Christ sake!
You play as a wizard in search of an ancient power. A temple filled with unspeakable beauty and terror is waiting to be explored. It’s a slow-paced adventure where you can enjoy scenery, puzzles, and artwork.
Voice command spells will be unlocked as you explore!
4. Boo! Greedy Kid
Boo! Greedy Kid is an absolute blast. Possibly the funnies game I’ve seen recently. It’s a game about scaring people, including elders with an unexpected BOO.
You play the platformer with your keyboard, and when you sneak right next to a character, you yell into your microphone.
Then you can collect their money for buying soda!
5. Tom Clancy’s EndWar
Tom Clancy’s EndWar™ puts you into the shoes of an army commander leading armies in World War III.
In addition to traditional RTS controls, you can use your own voice to control your units at the speed of thought!
Unfortunately online multiplayer services of this game are shut down by Ubisoft. However, you can still play this massively underrated game in single-player mode.
6. SoundSelf: A Technodelic
Are you ready to embark on an exhilarating journey into altered states of consciousness? It’s all powered by your own voice.
SoundSelf: A Technodelic is a unique experimental game or a tool to help you zone out. Basically a meditation helper.
If you want to experience something similar to DMT, play Soundself!
7. One Hand Clapping
One Hand Clapping is a vocal 2D platformer GAME. You solve puzzles by singing or humming into your microphone. Your voice will shape the world around you.
It’s a visual and musical art piece that should’ve been much more popular.
Your IRL neighbors might question your sanity though! Ha ha.
8. There Came an Echo
There Came an Echo is a real-time strategy game in which the player assumes command of a small squadron. Unlike every other squad based RTS game, There Came an Echo is played using advanced voice recognition. You issue orders, your squad follows. It’s played entirely with your voice. Futuristic stuff man, ha ha.
Complex, character-driven sci-fi plot of There Came an Echo: Corrin, an ordinary cryptographer, is thrown into a deadly game of secret agendas when a group of mercenaries tracks him down in Santa Monica, California. Guided by the mysterious Val (Ashly Burch), Corrin must escape from a foe with seemingly limitless resources and discover what secrets his own unbreakable algorithm, Radial Lock, is safeguarding…information that, if released, will rattle the very foundations of reality itself.
9. The Broken Seal
Notice: The Broken Seal requires VR (Virtual Reality Headest) equipment. If you don’t have it, skip this one.
The Broken Seal is an open world RPG with countless devastating spells. In order to cast spells, you must use your own voice.
40 hours of content, open world, unique bosses, and beautiful spells are what you can expect from The Broken Seal.
10. Tower 3D Pro
Tower!3D Pro is a simulation game of the world’s most stressful job, airport tower controller.
In this one, you guide aircrafts of various sizes for landing and takeoff. As a tower controller you must assure that it safe for a plane to enter or cross a runway, assign taxiway routes, when to stop and start movement, and clear aircraft for takeoff.
MOUSE ONLY PC GAMES < Similar genre.
The game is really hard. It has a complex structure you must follow.
Advanced AI and Speech Recognition technology in Tower!3D Pro are brilliant. Its reviews are mixed but the %99 of the real-life airport tower controllers gave a positive ranking to it.
