GeekWire has a great story today about how PopCap Games helped to make nine-year-old Owain Weinertâ€™s dream come true by working with him to create his very own iOS game. Owainâ€™s dream came true as a result of the amazing folks at the Make-a-Wish foundation who help sick children achieve their dreams. Owain, who has pre-B Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia, has spent the past few weeks with the developers at PopCap creating his third-person shooter game, Allied Star Police. The game will be released in the next few months, with proceeds benefitting the Make-a-Wish Foundation.
According to the gameâ€™s producer, Kirk Scott, also talking to TechFlash, Owain was very professional and actually laid out his vision of the game for the PopCap team with a PowerPoint presentation!
Owain was presented with his own iPad last week complete with a copy of his game pre-loaded, at a special party at PopCapâ€™s offices.
