Razer’s Android TV console, the Razer Forge TV, has recently been updated with Razer Cortex, a new online gaming storefront based on OUYA. In order to help sell the device, Razer has been teaming up with game developers to create exclusive games for the platform. A new game being launched exclusively for the Forge TV, not for any other Android TV device, will have proceeds from game sales going towards cancer research.
The game, “That Dragon, Cancer“, is about a young child who has been diagnosed with cancer. It’s a melancholy game based on a true story about Joel Green who was diagnosed when he was twelve months old with AT/RT brain cancer.
Min-Liang Tan, CEO and co-founder of Razer, commented about this announcement,
When we first acquired OUYA, it was with the vision of bringing Android gaming to the living room. By doing that, we now have the opportunity to give back to the community in a big way, by bringing this game to the public and by making sure all our proceeds go right back into the fight against cancer.
The game just launched yesterday on Steam and the Razer Forge TV. It costs $15.
