We’ve all heard about some of the great work that the people at Make-a-Wish Foundation do for kids, but the latest will be interesting for iPhone users.
Nine-year-old Owain Weinert is battling pre-B Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia, but he didn’t want to meet a rock star or great sports figure for his wish — he wanted to build his own iPhone game. With the help of the Foundation and PopCap Games, his wish came true, according to GeekWire.
The game — Allied Star Police — is described as a first person shooter where “players assume the role of the base commander, rapidly deploying a variety of automated battle machines and targeted ballistic ordinance to thwart the invading alien “Flamion” forces. The game name, theme, unit and faction names are all products of the incredibly talented and energetic Lead Designer, Owain. The gameplay and pacing are in turn specially crafted for him so that he can literally get lost in his very own world.”
The game is due out in the next few months.
