Ouya-funded game now available on Razer's Forge TV

Online retail outlet Razer Cortex says that it will donate all its proceeds from the sale of the game That Dragon, Cancer for Android TV to cancer charities.

That Dragon, Cancer is the story of a family dealing with a severely ill child. You can read Polygon's thoughts on this extraordinary game here.

Razer Cortex proceeds will go to the Morgan Adams Foundation, which funds cancer research and Family House SF, which provides free housing to families visiting hospitals in San Francisco.

That Dragon, Cancer was largely funded by Android console maker Ouya, which was acquired by Razer last year. Ouya's roster of games are now available for Razer's Forge TV micro console.

"When we first acquired Ouya, it was with the vision of bringing Android gaming to the living room," said Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan. "By doing that, we now have the opportunity to give back to the community in a big way, by bringing this game to the public and by making sure all our proceeds go right back into the fight against cancer."
