It is so fitting that this is a game, not a movie. From the jilting scene transitions to selective interactions, the dioramic games within the game to the increased level of abstraction and perspective changes, the mode of storytelling works. But it mostly excels at being a lesson that as much as you can "game-ify" elements of life, you will be confronted with perma-death—real death.

While That Dragon, Cancer isn't a completely successful experiment, I have to applaud it for doing something challenging and different. Perhaps the next time a game like this comes along, it will go even further. Oh and it's beautiful.

That Dragon, Cancer isn't a game for everyone. It can't be. However, anyone who's struggled through a hard fought battle with cancer probably knows that hallway full of cards very intimately, knows they aren't alone, and that their struggles are very real, very important, and almost impossible to explain it all to the world. Almost, but not entirely, impossible.
