Sam Coster - December 2015
Video game developer, Sam Coster, shares how in the midst of battling cancer, he created an adventure game he wanted to be seen as his legacy. At the young age of 23, Coster was diagnosed with Stage 4b Lymphoma. Though the prognosis was poor, Coster decided he wanted his remaining time devoted to creating something he could be proud of.
With his first round of treatment, Coster worked tirelessly on developing a new game with his brothers. After being declared cancer free, Coster was ecstatic. Unfortunately the cancer returned. but Coster's motivation never waned. Over the course of the next two years, Coster continued on with his work.
Coster reflects, "I have lived my life more fully in the past two years than I ever thought I could, and all of it due to getting cancer—having my own mortality shoved in my face—and responding by fashioning all the bone pain, chemo nausea, anxiety, depression, stab wounds, tape rips, and hair loss into an object designed to impart pure joy."
