Make-a-Wish Foundation - 'Ben's Game' Released
8:36 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story
The Make-a-Wish Foundation, an organization that makes wishes come true for children with life-threatening illnesses, is currently sponsoring the development of a game. Being developed by Eric Johnston of LucasArts, Ben's Game, as the program is known, features Ben Duskin, a nine-year-old in remission from Leukemia who's wish is to design a computer game helpful to kids with cancer.
"The initial response was overwhelmingly pessimistic" said Patricia Wilson, Executive Director. "People told us this venture was nearly impossible without taking several years and literally millions of dollars." A hero stepped forward: Eric Johnston, and his employer LucasArts fully supported his efforts. Not only did Eric want to make Ben's wish a reality, he planned to involve Ben in every step of the process. For months, Ben and Eric have been meeting on a regular basis to make the game just as Ben envisioned it.Ben's Game is currently in beta format, and is available for both the Mac and PC. Those interested in trying it out can download it from the official Ben's Game site.
