Skyboat Media has been the exclusive producer and narrator(s) of all unabridged versions of Orson Scott Card’s ENDER’S GAME, as well as all subsequent sequels, prequels, and spin-offs. (Check out the First Formic War Series and the Second Formic War Series published by Macmillan Audio.)
Based on ENDER’S GAME, ENDER’S GAME ALIVE : THE FULL CAST AUDIOPLAY is a one-of-a-kind project written by Orson Scott Card. This 7-hour audioplay—directed by Gabrielle de Cuir, produced by Stefan Rudnicki at Skyboat Media, and published by Audible.com—is a fully-dramatized production of ENDER’S GAME, performed by an incredible cast of over 30 actors playing over 100 roles.
After months of pre-production, we finally went into production in July 2013, and after a few months of post-production—run by Ted and Heather Scott of 50 Nugget Wash—EGA was published and available to your ears in October 2013.
And talk about a warm welcome, from fans and critics alike. ENDER’S GAME ALIVE : THE FULL CAST AUDIOPLAY was nominated for three Audie Awards.
Audie Award Finalist, Multi-Voiced Performance, 2014
Audie Award Finalist, Original Work, 2014
Audie Award Finalist, Distinguished Achievement in Production, 2014
With a talented cast of characters, an original score, and heart-pumping sound effects, this is truly an audio tale like no other.

SO SMART to fund this creative idea. From Star Wars to Dr. Who, all the great sci-fi stories do the audio drama. With Card writing the script, 40+ voice actors, and fully scored, this sounds like an amazing production and this is just incredible! Thank you for thinking of and following through with this!

As a massive fan of Enders Game, I was intrigued to see how it would play out as an audio play especially when the movie (despite some excellent pieces of conversion) struggled to get over some of the more critical bits and emotions. Anyway, I digress and must say that I was impressed with EGA overall, the voice acting was, by and large, excellent with major nods going to Bean, Graff and Ender. I still think that much like the Hunger Games film/book comparisons, since a lot of the content is in the thoughts of the main character its hard to get it over to the viewer/listener when they can’t see/hear the thoughts of the character and that is just a downside of having so much material written from that point of view. So…… top job overall and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
