Xbox game to donate 100% of profits to kids with cancer
While big-name companies make millions from triple A gaming titles, indie studio Arconyx decides to make a game that will help generate funds for children battling cancer and their families.
The game is called ‘I, Hope” and sees protagonist Hope battle a rampaging enemy named “Cancer” to save her island home. Lead developer Kenny Roy says in a post on Microsoft News Center, “As much as I love shoot ‘em ups, big explosions and arcade experiences, I believe that games can be so much more.” Roy believes that there are real positive experiences that can be gained from gaming and wants the greater public to experience that.
As Hope attempts to halt the warpath of the evil Cancer, she ends up traveling to four floating islands where she gathers the necessary tools to defeat the evil that has besieged her home.
Below is a work-in-progress trailer of the game that Roy hopes will be fun for everyone and at the same time will deliver a meaningful message to the kids struggling in hospitals worldwide. Alfred Bayle
