That Dragon Cancer is a video game unlike any other. The game is an indie title that has been made by a family who have 4 sons, one of whom battled terminal cancer for several years.
The game tells the family’s story and in particular their experiences in dealing with Joel, their son’s, illness.
It is advertised as “A videogame developer’s love letter to his son; an adventure game to inspire us to love each other; a voice for those fighting cancer.”
The game attempts to give an insight into the family’s life as they dealt with the challenges that they faced. It makes use of real audio from the family’s very personal collection and presents an incredibly sensitive subject with emotional weight in the form of a video game.
That Dragon Cancer is due to be released in mid 2015 and a Kickstarter campaign is currently running to fund this important and groundbreaking game HERE
