Feel-good Sunday post: 11-year-old makes games for cancer patients, charity


Game development has become more accessible to non-professionals with tool suites such as GameSalad, which is what 11-year-old Conner Haines used to start his own studio, Flip Flop Games. Through Flip Flop, Haines began the BElieve program, where he turns game ideas from cancer patients age 5-12 into real iOS titles, with all profit going to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Flip Flop's app sales clock in at more than 1,400 so far, and it sounds like Haines is just getting started. He says it takes him two to three months to complete an idea, and eligible kids can submit their ideas right here.
