We have just announced that we will be producing ENDER’S GAME ALIVE: THE FULL CAST AUDIOPLAY written by Orson Scott Card, based on Ender’s Game. Production begins mid-July here at Skyboat, and we will be updating this page with features from the production. The audioplay will be released in late October 2013, will have a cast of over 40 actors playing over 100 roles. The production will be originally scored with full sound effects. It will be directed by Gabrielle de Cuir and produced here at Skyboat by Stefan Rudnicki. All this brought to you by publisher Audible.com.

In their teaser post, they called he work "revolutionary in nature," as they will be working with Orson Scott Card (who wrote the script!) and "a cast of over 40 actors reading over 80 characters in over 100 scenes to create a full-radio style drama recording with Foley effects and a musical score that goes into production on July 9th."
