That Dragon, Cancer

2016


Ryan and Amy Green heartbreakingly lost their son Joel to cancer in 2014. As a way to grieve, empathize with others, and commemorate Joel’s life, the Greens developed and released That Dragon, Cancer on Joel’s birthday in January 2016. Among the most profound and moving stories told in the medium of video games to date, That Dragon, Cancer is an intensely personal struggle of raw emotion and moving metaphor that utilizes the medium for connection and personal engagement, in a manner without precedent.

The game leverages an art style where characters are rendered without distinguishing facial features. This technique functions as both a vehicle for empathy, allowing participants to insert themselves into character roles, while also softening what might otherwise be an overwhelming and too real experience. The entirety of the game is bathed in an otherworldly light, underscoring the presence of the supernatural throughout.
