Best Music & Audio
The characters and world of Storkinators comes to life because of the music, voice acting and sound effects, much like a radio drama. Games are not often presented in this way and we feel this makes Storkinators special. More commonly in games, the suspension of disbelief is carried by the visuals whilst in Storkinators it almost entirely consists of the auditive elements. Due to the minimalistic visual representation of the story, this allows near-static imagery to come to life in your imagination through the audio. Visuals simply augment the audio experience of Storkinators, which has been carefully crafted to carry the story and writing. Key plot points and much of the humor of the game is brought across through the dialogue the three characters share with each other.
The voice acting in Storkinators is also note-worthy, not only for carrying the narrative but also in performance: The three protagonists, among many other characters, are voiced by a single person!

Best Casual Entertainment
Storkinators is a game designed for those who enjoy soaking in a story and world. The game purposefully has little action: those looking for a game like Killzone are not our target audience. Those who enjoy imagination-heavy experiences such as reading, playing narrative-heavy games or listening to stories and/or radio drama will most likely also enjoy experiencing Storkinators.
Children aged 8-12 who like stories enjoy the game’s gags and humor, while middle aged casual/non gamers appreciated the narrative and personalities of the characters. More so, couples and friends especially enjoy experiencing the game’s story, making choices and figuring out puzzles together. People who grew up in the 80's and 90's who grew up with Sierra/Lucasarts “point-and-click adventures” and/or read “choose your own adventure” books also very much appreciate Storkinators. This is no surprise as the creators of Storkinators also fall into this group.

Storkinators is difficult to categorize as it takes elements from so many different sources. Storkinators combines, among other things, radio drama, Choose-Your-Own-Adventure books and Point & Click Adventure games of the 80's and 90's. You can think of Storkinators as a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure book in audio form for the modern age. Storkinators takes these antiquated and long-forgotten elements and presents them to a modern audience. This is what makes Storkinators new and interesting.
