Ellen Jurik from Sydney’s Blowfish Studios joins us in the studio this week. She is the Game Director of Storm Boy: The Game, an interactive adaptation of the classic Australian children's novel by Colin Thiele. We spoke about what it took to adapt this game, and capturing the essence of the story.

We also talk about Epic Games' aggressive push into the videogame delivery market. With better deals for developers and the promise of curation for its library it looks like they are out to give Steam a run for its money.
