That Dragon, Cancer is coming to OUYA consoles exclusively in 2014, following its showing at this year’s Develop Indie Showcase.

I interviewed the game’s creators Ryan Green and Josh Larson last month, and found that it’s an adventure game based on Green’s son Joel, whose cancer meant he wouldn’t live past his second birthday. The fact he’s still alive today spurred Green on to make a game about the experience and the dragon cancer he has fought so hard to slay.

Set largely in a children’s hospital, the game deals with themes of hope, togetherness and emotion, during which players will uncover poems, musical arrangements and other uplifting discoveries. It’s coming exclusively to OUYA in 2014 and will be self-published by its creators.
