Metia Interactive was approached by the Make a Wish Foundation of New Zealand to make Jamies wish come true, that was to make him a game based on his character Elfy.
The team at Metia volunteered their time to make this game happen for Jamie making his wish come true.
Jamie is a 14 year old boy from Taranaki, New Zealand who has leukaemia. His wish is to create his own computer game. His story is best described by a Make-A-Wish volunteer assisting with Jamie's wish.
Six months prior to receiving his diagnosis, the family attended the local school gala and this is where Jamie found "Elfy". He is a little hand knitted doll in the style of a..., you guessed it.... Elf!
Since then Elfy has lived in Jamie's pocket, (about 4 years) ½ and has been his constant companion through all of his treatments and recovery, and this is where Elfy became the inspiration to be the hero of his game.
