Just yesterday I was contacted by Matthew Lee Johnston of PopCap who was gracious enough to thank me for my interest in the story of Owain Weinert and Allied Star Police. If you didn't read my Letter from the Editor in the February issue, I highly recommend you check it out, as I declared Owain and PopCap's touching tale to be the best of 2011.
Besides his sincere thank you, he also included this YouTube video of the Make-A-Wish keynote the two gave back in October. I seriously have so much respect and admiration for this kid. He is my hero, and gives me faith in the world where sometimes I think people couldn't be worse. I thought I would share.
Warning: This video is extremely touching and just shows that someone needs to make this into a major motion picture as any movie theater that ran it would not have a dry eye in the house.
Once again, major kudos to PopCap, Matthew, and Owain (and you can grab a link to the game on my letter).
Email the author Andy McNamara, or follow on Twitter, Google+, Facebook, and Game Informer.
Awwww... That's so sweet!
(sheds single tear)
This is a great gesture from Popcap and Make-a-wish. Owain is a great kid.
I knew there was a reason PopCap was one of my favorite developers. This is nothing but class.
This is great. Not only did Owain's dream come true, but the people who worked on the game are blessed by it and the people who see this story are encouraged by it. Owain is a great speaker, as well!
It's nice to see stuff like that happening yay for Owain!
now if only his wish was half-life 3 and the developer was valve not popcap...........;)
Coolest. Kid. Ever.
Great. Imagine the game's success going cross-platform. Android, Playstation Store, Xbox Live Marketplace, and the Nintendo eShop. Steam? Chrome Web Store? This could get even bigger. I might even buy it. Probably. However, I don't have a iPhone/iPad. Just a 3DS, Wii, and this computer. Oh, and the Nook store.
