Storm Boy is an inoffensive and simple experience that would be well suited for a young audience, especially with an adult alongside. It's much more like an interactive storybook than it is an out and out gaming experience, and keeps everything simple and short. If you want a calming break from the gaming behemoths that are currently out and about, then Storm Boy is a delightful option.

Storm Boy: The Game’s biggest flaw is its length. The price point, as of writing this, is unreleased, but it took me less than twenty minutes to beat the game, and so I hope the game stays accordingly affordable.

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.

Storm Boy is a short and, ultimately, lovely experience. It is the perfect game to chill out with on a Sunday afternoon or to introduce younger players to the world of gaming whilst providing a strong eco-friendly message.
