Description

“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. “I, Hope” is being developed by Arconyx Studios and will be donated in its entirety to GameChanger Charity with 100% of the profits going directly toward benefiting children with life-threatening illnesses and their families.

History

When we think of video games, our minds go to epic battles, fantasy worlds, crazy races and mind-boggling adventures. For the developers of "I, Hope", creating a game is all of the above and, on top of that, have a higher purpose. Hitting that perfect balance between pure amusement and lifting spirits doesn’t happen overnight, nor does is happen by itself. I, Hope is a beautiful coming of age adventure story about a young girl named Hope, 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. The developer has truly 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. In addition to this being a great game, the developer is donating all their profits from the game to Game Changer, a wonderful non-profit organization whose mission is to spread hope and love to children staying in hospitals. Watch for this game to come to Xbox One!
