Not sure if this has been posted here or not but this game looks different. The game creator lived through his son being diagnosed with cancer.
Here's the trailer:
Literally retarded game.
I don't give a shit about some tear-jerker of a story that isn't actually real. Someone actually said " hey lets make up a story about a kid with cancer, and fabricate stuff as realistically as possible, then add some dramatic strings and virtua fighter graphics! "
This game itself is cancer, playing on cancer.
Okay, but that is a very silly name.
Especially if you're going to put dragon and cancer on a new line and have the comma unnoticeable. People are going to think your game is about dragon cancer.
Way to waste money making a shitty game instead of living your life like the child would've wanted if he'd been old enough to understand.
Nobody wants a real sob story. Nobody wants a fucking pity party from some cock-gobbling bearded fuck, we play games to get away from this real life shit.
This game isn't about dragon cancer?
So then is it " That dragon, cancer "? Neither makes sense. Like is he paraphrasing " Look at that dragon, Cancer! " In which, is he calling his child Cancer? Did he forget his kid's name and just decide to call him Cancer because that's all he could remember that was important about the child?
That cold cut, Cancer! I'm going to eat it, Cancer! That Cancer, Cancer!
I found the bleeding-heart SJW! Literally fuck off, he's using his dead kid to make money so he can make more shovelware bullshit for tablet games later.
Get over yourself and fuck off this board if you're crying so much about some beardo faggot using his child for money.
I "played" it last year at SXSW, was shitty as Hell with "artistic" character models that didn't move and the only gameplay was choosing a character to hear their thoughts during a conversation and very limited walking sim stuff
No i don't think its that, it's something much sadder, he wrote a book about his son and cancer and made this game, and both in a tone of denial, like by creating these things his son won't have further complications because he already improved after doctors said he'd die, like a tone of being in the clear, he didn't want to accept what was going to happen
>boohoo my life so sad
>buy my game
I've read books about sad lives, I've watched movies about sad lives, but I'm not playing a "game" about this shit. This guy is just trying to make money off his kids cancer. That's disgusting.
I have a son and trust me, I'd much rather be the one with cancer if that ever happened.
"Dragon" used to be more common, at least a hundred years ago, in the ye olde English times, as synonymous as an almighty, powerful adversary that you pretty much couldn't beat. So he's comparing cancer to a dragon, since he can't fight it or something. It's too powerful for him.
it's a really bad attempt at an artsy name when most people aren't gonna get it
Imagine "That Dragon, Cancer 2: Electric Boogaloo" and it's a dancing simulator where you tapdance on the grave of western society to k-pop while a boring voice narrates all the millions of stupid nicknames he was gonna give his dead cancer kids
Why write a book if you have the knowledge and ability to make a visually interactive medium instead?
Would you say the same thing if a musician wrote a song for someone who died? Or an artist made an art piece?
>Many years ago, I had a patient, just a wonderful young man who was loved by the staff, and so it was something of a shock to us to realize that he had no friends. He lived by himself, he would come in for chemotherapy by himself, he would receive his treatment, and then he'd walk home alone. And I even asked him. I said, "Hey, how come you never bring a friend with you?" And he said, "I don't really have any friends." But he had tons of friends on the infusion floor. We all loved him, and people were going in and out of his room all the time. So at his last chemo, we sang him the song and we put the crown on his head and we blew the bubbles, and then I asked him, I said, "So what are you going to do now?" And he answered, "Make friends." And he did. He started volunteering and he made friends there, and he began going to a church and he made friends there, and at Christmas he invited my husband and me to a party in his apartment, and the place was filled with his friends. Claim your experience. Don't let it claim you. He decided that the meaning of his experience was to know the joy of friendship, and then learn to make friends.
>I don't think the number of children you have would make you care about them individually less.
Maybe he's Catholic and can't use protection, or he's making sure he's got a quiver full of kids ready to outbreed the darkies. People have multiple kids for the stupidest reasons sometimes, it's not always about having plenty of love to go around.
holy fuck end it already
no i wont donate to your stupid fucking cause
no, no matter how much money you give to some pharmaceutical corporation they are not going to make a cure
how about you try figuring out why you got cancer in the first place you dumb fucking sheep
>Maybe he's Catholic and can't use protection
That is the dumbest shit I've heard today
I never want to be a parent, but I can understand why.
Having children is like extending your life. Your memories are passed on to them, and they will be the only one to remember after you die.
This isn't a game, I'm sure its heartbreaking to have to live through your son being diagnosed with cancer, but this just isn't a game. Make a movie, write a book, make a comic series, I don't care, but a video game is not the medium this story should be told through, at least not in this fashion.
I don't understand what they're trying to do with this game.
It kinda feels like that game, Coming Out Simulator, in that it's a complete waste of disk space and it serves to no other purpose than stroking the creator's ego, it's not interesting, it's not fun, the only thing that keeps you going is the fact that it's so short and it will be acclaimed by critics and retarded audience alike.
I understand that people are trying to turn videogames into something more than just things to entertain people, but your sad tearjerker story about a baby who has cancer is NOT the right way to do it.
