That, Dragon, Cancer is one of those games that will send you in tears. A true story about a young boy named Joel Green, diagnosed with cancer and he and his family go through an experience of their lives.  It's a game about sadness, hope and love. There is no game out there that can create a lot of emotion than this wonderful game on a true story. Each time we watch or play this game, it'll feel like Joel is with us and that he's a part of us.

Seeing the ending of that game in the picnic scene just had me in tears cause while seeing that I got hit with many memory of my little brother and he's those special kids, he has Down syndrome which made it even more sad for me

That's awesome. I'm so happy this game got the award. Ik what it's like to loose a loved in to cancer. several times, their story made me cry not just because of the sympathy but also because Ik exactly what they're going through
Girlmien Haas (9 months ago)
Someone in the crowd yelled "I love you dad" and I am assuming his wife and kids were there. My heart goes out to them ❤️❤️❤️
lorna anderson (9 months ago)
Thank you for making such an amazing game. My grandpa passed away my Senior year of high school, he had lung cancer, wasn't suppose to make it to December and passed away in October. Cancer is an evil thing, but you created a game where we saw what you had to go through. You deserve this award more then anyone and I'm glad you won. I had found out about your game a couple months ago and then watched your movie, your son had left such an impact in my heart because I have a love for kids, even if I don't physically know them, but he meant a lot to many people and I'm glad he got to live and experience life before he passed. He is now in a better place, no more hurting, and no more cancer.
TheDjWolf (10 months ago)
honestly just remembering the game itself and seeing him win that award, and walk up there was enough to make me cry...
Joanna Grace (10 months ago)
Everyone is hating on Justine and Mat. Guys, lay off. They're literally doing their job. They were congratulating the game. That's why they were excited. Knock it off
Sixx Sense (10 months ago)
Never have I ever cried so much during a game. Not even Soma, The Last of Us, or anything has ever made me weep and feel downright depressed for over two months. But, it also showed me some light within the world. Many lessons learned, and a new opening to life's true meaning.

They deserved that award and so much more my heart goes out to all those who have to deal with cancer.

whos cuttings the onions
Paula K (11 months ago)
There's no doubt about how ill suited both hosts were, but that's not what should matter here. I haven't played it yet, but these parents managed to make something that takes full dedication and time after they lost their son. If listening to the baby's laughs in the trailer makes my heart hurt, imagine what it was like for them... While this show isn't ready to deal with so many sensibilities, and unwarranted hate in the internet remains strong, the fact that this game won says a lot about "gamers" and the industry. I'm looking forward for some changes... and less shallow hosts.

i love this......
Jeroscope (11 months ago)
... Honestly, I wish someone would have just went up and hugged the guy. He needed it so badly at that moment there. I dont think enough people realize what this game means to Ryan, especially right then and there. They probably thought he was just being awkward. They probably had no idea what it was.
Deadking (11 months ago)
I played "that Dragon cancer" it is a very very sad game
• dalaynee • (1 year ago)
RIP Joel Evan Green. My dad died of cancer when I was 3, I never got to know him. My family constantly tells me how much I resemble him and I feel like it's somehow my fault. So I resemble with this game in missing somebody and wishing you could know them so much.
• dalaynee • (1 year ago)
I'm seeing a lot of comments about Matt and Justine's presentation of the winner. They were doing what the producers told them to do and being enthusiastic. It's not their fault, so please don't blame them.

es1toxic 425 (1 year ago)
this guy deserves the best for him and his family if any of u hate him that's OK I'm not judging but think about all the pain he has went through all of it was for a cause and he deserves respect and I'm crying cause it's normal and it's cruel if u don't think his son loved many dad's didn't have that bond we shouldn't judge him he's a great father
Jack Leslie (1 year ago)
woo-hoo presenting the dude who's 4 year old died of cancer!
R A D fox 420 (1 year ago)
Why is everyone in the comment section so hostile towards Mat and Justine? I mean sure they were smiling, but they clearly didn't know who was going to win. Matpat even talked about it in some of his streams. I just wish people would stop calling people out without checking their facts. I'm ashamed. Truly ashamed.

Kal (1 year ago)
I kickstarted the game, but never had the strength to play it, having suffered loss of loved ones to this terrible disease, it was too hard, but I'm really proud I could be a small part in helping this beautiful homage to love and loss come to life

Seriously, who let the two YouTube idiots announce the winner for the category that had nominees about the Iranian revolution, Orwellian spying and childhood cancer?

The most powerful moment of the show. Then I found out that the game was equally as powerful.

I am crying...that was so emotional.
PhantomVirus (1 year ago)
To everyone going after the announcers MatPat and IJustine, I want to let you know they had NO IDEA what game was going to be in that letter. They were reading it for the first time. Imagine if the game had been a cheery fun game and they said it in a funeral like tone!
Gojiro7 (1 year ago)
I clicked onto this after watching Total Biscuit talking about the presenters (Mattpat and I have no clue who she is) being overly cheery when handing the developer this award for telling the story of his dying son, that truly was a touching emotionally strong speech and my heart goes out to him and his family for what this game meant to them, though I don't want to point fingers at the presenters for making that awkward, they had no way of knowing things would turn somber the way it did so i'm hoping people don't judge.

This is the most depressing acceptance speech I've ever seen, but he deserves that award.

Hey its AO (1 year ago)
I didn't know what this game was. Saw the tears on this man's face and had to look it up. Saw the whole game play... 15 min after watching still crying... this game has a great impact on my life and I hope that it has impacted the lives of others either by playing the game or watching the whole game footage... God bless you and keep you.
loo lolo (6 months ago)
Hey its AO I saw a few gameplay parts and the end... I m daddy of a 1 year old baby i can't see a lot, but I m not able to "play" this experience... at each first second of a video of That dragon cancer, i begin to cry... I'm not able to do this "game" but it touched my heart throught the videos...I can feel love they had, it is the love i ve for my sweet little baby. It has change me inside to about illness of little children... Parents should never dig a grave for their babies.
DoomgutTheVile (1 year ago)
Jesus man, the whole fucking show is so obnoxious compared to the honest and meaningful things he was saying. C'mon man. Have some tact.
