New online game raises money for cancer

A team of developers from the UK has launched a new online virtual reality game designed to raise money for cancer research.

In the game called "Operation: Sleeper Cell," a team of players try to solve puzzle cells in a grid. By donating money to the game, they can unlock extra cells for all players and advance the story. There are other games that raise awareness of issues like "World Without Oil" and the British Red Cross' new "Traces of Hope," but this is the first game used to raise money.

Everyone who works on the game is an unpaid volunteer who donates their extra time. Adrian Hon helped put the team together: "This game really shatters the old stereotypes of gamers being mindless entertainment for antisocial kids, and shows that they really can be a force for good."
