In this indie video game, players confront cancer. Developed by Ryan Green and co., That Dragon, Cancer is a click and point computer game that tells the story of Green's son Joel's four year fight with cancer.

The adventure game uses gaming as a platform to inform and educate players while still providing entertainment and an interactive experience. The audience-engaging indie video game combines rich imagery and emotional narratives to create a rich atmosphere. The simple game features narrated poetry and a soundtrack composed by Jon Hillman. Gamers can explore the 3D environment and unlock the story of a family dealing with cancer.

That Dragon, Cancer is the result of a successful crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter. It is scheduled to be released this year on Ouya, PC and Mac.
