Colin Thiele’s beloved 1964 children's book Storm Boy is currently in the process of being adapted to cinema for the second time and is also being turned into a video game. We first found out about it coming to multiple game platforms including the Switch in August, and now the Australian-based developer Blowfish Studios has revealed Storm Boy: The Game will arrive on 20th November.
As previously described, the title is an interactive retelling of the novel. You take on the role of a young boy located on the beaches of South Australia, near the mouth of the Murray River. The protagonist rescues pelican chicks and goes on to raise one of them known as Mr. Percival. The video game adaptation recreates many moments from the novel while also including relaxing mini-games such as sailing, bird feeding, sand surfing, drawing and more.
