Before I was conceived, my mother had learned that she had somehow gotten cervical cancer.
The last time I spoke to my dad, he had been suffering for months from bladder cancer, probably brought on due to years of smoking. He had quit for ~7 years at the time of his diagnosis.
Cancer is an affliction that can affect any one of us, with one third of the population at risk at any one moment in time. I have always lived in fear of myself, or any third of all of the people I know and love being taken by cancer. Having mine, or their own lives ruined by cancer.
"That Dragon, Cancer" is a game that has affected me very deeply, realising my fears and worries in a way that I didn't know existed within me.
Please hold your loved ones close. They won't always be there.
Much love, everyone.

"This is where we go to remember our son Joel, up through here along this path. We want to show you who he was, and how his life changed us. Can we walk here together for a while?"
A videogame developer's love letter to his son; an immersive narrative driven experience to memorialize Joel Green and, through his story, honor the many he represents. That Dragon, Cancer is a poetic and playful interactive retelling of Joel’s 4-year fight against cancer.
Using a mix of first-person and third-person perspective, and point-and-click interaction, this two-hour narrative experience invites the player to slow down and immerse themselves in a deeply personal memoir featuring audio taken from home videos, spoken word poetry, and themes of faith, hope, despair, helplessness and love, along with in-game tributes to the loved ones of over 200 of our Kickstarter backers.
Can you find hope in the face of death?
