Hunter Allis has always loved playing video games. But unlike some fellow 14-year-olds, Hunter's interest goes beyond simply playing the games. He dreamed of someday creating them.
Hunter was born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome, in which one side of the organ is weaker than the other. He's had four open-heart surgeries, which caught the attention of Make-A-Wish North Texas. Through the organization, Hunter got a chance to fulfill his dream of creating a video game. And now, unexpectedly, it's hitting the market.
In 2015, when Hunter was 11, he flew from Connecticut to Texas to meet the staff at the Addison software company Bottle Rocket. That's where he, designers and developers first got to work on Planet SRAM.
