Wait, is this that one game I read about a while ago where they helped that lil kid make the game he wanted? Oh shoot, definitely going to have to get it then. Definitely much respect to Popcap for doing this.

Opinions can always change quickly if you just know the background.

Cool thing by PopCap, fulfilling the boys dream.
This is a must-download, just to give kudos to PopCap.

For the ill boy, let's make this game a major success, #1 top download in the free games charts.

Here's a video with the little dev, Owain Weinert:

And here's his website:

Why didnt they make it paid like a buck or so, and give the money to this kid's parents to help paying for the medical bills?
Maybe theres a "donate" button in the game! If so i will be def shelling out a couple of bucks.
Anyway kudos to popcap to help this little (wonder)boy making his dream come true!!

Good point but a difficult one. If they made this game 99c or so and said all the profits go towards this boy then they will probably get criticised for this move as people might feel guilty if they dont buy this.

Be good if there is a donate button though so people can send money, but i'm sure if you google this kid there might be a website perhaps witha donate button anyway ?

Good on Popcap to do this though, the kid must be thrilled hes got a game out there.

I was wondering that too after I found out the background. Surprised it's free. But yeah, if there's a donate button, I'm hitting it.

I already posted Owains site (Owains Army) above.
You can donate there if you wish. But a donate button in the app would be cool, too.

As far as I know, they still need to raise treatment funds. Got around 50 grand or something but still need some more, up to 72 grand. His treatment goes until 2013.

But it's also cool that PopCap just don't released it, instead they are making some huge NZ release out of it. Again, kudos!
