Storm Boy: The Game Soars onto Console, PC, and Mobile Later this Year

A classic children’s story, retold anew


Storm Boy: The Game


Indie developer Blowfish Studios has announced that Storm Boy: The Game will be releasing on console, PC, and mobile later this year.

A re-telling of Australian author Colin Thiele’s 1964 book of the same name, Storm Boy takes place on the beaches of South Australia near the mouth of the Murray River and follows the protagonist, Storm Boy, as he rescues a group of orphaned pelican chicks — one of whom becomes the child’s pet and close companion, Mr. Percival. Players will be able to take control of both Storm Boy and Mr. Percival during key moments of the story to help move it along, and will also be able to enjoy a variety of mini-games along the way.

Storm Boy is a classic piece of literature in Australia, and we’re proud to adapt it for a new medium,” said Blowfish Studios Senior Producer Ellen Jurik. “We hope players of all ages will enjoy this story, whether it’s for the first time or through a new lens, and can’t wait to share it with the world when we release it for consoles, PC, and mobile devices later this year.”



Storm Boy: The Game is slated to release later this year on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Windows PC, Mac, iOS, and Android. Was Storm Boy a childhood favorite of yours? Are you looking forward to experiencing it once again? Let us know in the comments below!

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
