Autobiographical drama That Dragon, Cancer is now available on iOS devices.
Developed by Ryan and Amy Green along with studio Numinous Games, That Dragon, Cancer tells the story of the Green family raising their young son Joel, who was stricken with cancer. Drawing heavily from the Green family’s personal life, That Dragon, Cancer is a brief glimpse into the tragedy, wonder, and occasional whimsy of struggling through everyday life under frequently agonising circumstances.
We were big fans of That Dragon, Cancer upon its launch earlier this year on PC, Mac and Linux. Our Martin Robinson called it “a work that bravely pushes at the boundaries of what’s possible within a game” in his glowing That Dragon, Cancer review.
For more on the story behind the game, a feature length documentary was made about the Green family’s day to day life while developing That Dragon, Cancer. Called Thank You For Playing, the film won Best Documentary at Twin Cities Film Fest and was nominated for the same category at Tribecca.
