Don’t want to hum some music into existence? Just draw something and snap it into TuneTrace instead.
A great little story from one of my favorite local blogs, Vanishing New York:
Jake says, “I just couldn’t imagine it becoming a condo, or having someone else running it. I could not handle that. So it was an easy decision. If I wasn’t here, this place would disappear.”

But yes, this is awesome.
Sympathetic to Green’s plight, Ramage was intrigued. A game about a child’s terminal cancer? A game about being the father of a dying child?
Green and Larson showed him their game, That Dragon, Cancer. Ramage sat down facing the bustling room, put on the headphones and played for a few minutes.
That’s all it took. He began weeping.
