Overall, Storm Boy was a disappointment to me. I thought it would be a lot longer as well. I completed the game in an hour and most of the time spent was due to having to stop and read the story as well as goofing around with the drawing in the sand mini-game. You could probably beat the game in less than 10 minutes or so if you skipped the optional mini-games.
An oh, if you’ve for some reason got the impression that this game will appeal only to the Australian audience or those who had read the book, you’re mistaken. This game, or, rather, the interactive storybook is for all those who were touched by the natural world around us and changed for the better. Luckily it’s done for all relevant gaming platforms, including PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, iOS, and Android.
Storm Boy: The Game is an interesting take on interactive storytelling, and young children or fans of the book may find enjoyment here, but its short length and lack of any real gameplay make it one worth passing on for the average Switch Player.
