Cancer-Fighting Gameplay: The Re-Mission 2 Trailer

Cancer-Fighting Gameplay: The Re-Mission 2 Trailer

Slice and dice! Seek and destroy! That’s what adolescent and young adult cancer patients told us they wanted to do to their disease. This new Re-Mission 2 trailer shows off some of that action in the games, but to get the full cancer-fighting experience you’ll have to spend some quality time blasting (and chomping, zapping and blowing up) cancer at www.re-mission2.org (games go live April 29).

How did we decide on the gameplay styles? Hopelab worked with over 120 young adults and kids with cancer to develop Re-Mission 2, and when they spoke, we listened.  The action in each game was informed by insights from these game co-developers, who we met at hospitals all over the U.S. In fact, the Hopelab R&D team flew thousands of miles to find out exactly how cancer might be chopped and destroyed in a game for maximum fun.
