Turning A Sick Boy Into A Video Game Hero

Wade Sharp is a young boy born with Osteogenesis Imperfecta, a condition that means his bones are as brittle as chalk, and which stops him playing sports and keeps him inside playing video games. Wade's Make-A-Wish request, then, was to see how games are made, so Robot Entertainment (Orcs Must Die) were only too happy to oblige.

Earlier today, Wade and his family visited the studio, and he was made a game developer for a day, not only seeing how video games are developed, but getting to help design himself as a character to boot.


In addition to seeing himself turned into a virtual superstar, he even got a statue of the character to take home.

Wade's character is called "The Super-Master", and will be appearing in Robot's next, unannounced game.
