That Dragon, Cancer


Recommended Posts


Calling That Dragon, Cancer a "video game" is probably the wrong way to position it; "interactive artistic experience" is likely more accurate. Nomenclature aside, That Dragon, Cancer is about Ryan and Amy Green, and their son Joel, who was diagnosed with brain cancer when he was around a year old. It seeks to replicate their feelings and struggles as they deal with Joel's diagnosis and treatment. Of particular note around here, the Greens are Christians, and faith plays a significant role in the game. They were interviewed about that, and the process of turning their mourning into a virtual memorial for their son, on the podcast Reply All. 

It's the side effects that save us.
