Gaming with a greater purpose
When we think of video games, our minds go to epic battles, fantasy worlds, crazy races and mind-boggling adventures. For Kenny Roy, the developer of I, Hope, creating a game is about hitting the perfect balance between pure-amusement and lifting player’s spirits.
I, Hope is a beautiful coming of age adventure story about a young girl whose town has been taken over by Cancer. The game is engaging for all, yet for survivors and children who are currently battling cancer, the game is empowering.
Kenny Roy, is donating all proceeds from the game to GameChanger Charity, a wonderful non-profit organization whose mission is to spread hope and love to children staying in hospitals.
About the Game
“I, Hope” is a 3D platforming game that follows Hope, a young girl whose life is turned upside down when a mysterious monster named Cancer falls from sky and lands on her island home.
The gameplay centers around discovering unique abilities entrenched within magical floating islands in order to solve puzzles and defeat enemies.
The developer set out to make a game that kids can play while receiving cancer treatments; something to distract them, but at the same time, put them back in control of their battle. I, Hope is engaging for all, yet for survivors and children who are currently battling cancer, the game is truly empowering.
I, Hope was developed by Kenny Roy who donated the game to GameChanger Charity’s mission of benefiting children with life-threatening illnesses and their families.
Xbox One Console Exclusive
I, Hope was discovered early by the ID@Xbox team who helped champion the development of the project for more than 18 months. Microsoft offered Kenny Roy support throughout the development process and the ID@Xbox team worked tirelessly to test, certify, and make this game an Xbox One console exclusive.
++Good Games is working with the “I, Hope” team to bring this game to market across Steam, Amazon, Humble Bundle. Additionally, the network we’ve built through streaming events on Twitch, Beam, and YouTube will make sure this game gets seen.
When we think of video games, our minds go to epic battles, fantasy worlds, crazy races and mind-boggling adventures. For Roy, creating a game should be about all of the above and, on top of that, have a higher purpose. However, hitting the perfect balance between pure amusement and lifting spirits is not an easy task; and it doesn’t happen overnight, nor does is happen by itself.
The initial idea behind “I, Hope” was straight forward; come up with a story, design the game, and donate it to a charity. ++Good Games was brought on board to connect the Kenny and Co. with partners like Unity, ID@Xbox, and GameChanger Charity to bring more awareness to this title.
