Make-A-Wish Foundation and PopCap Games Make a Dream Come True

You'll be able to download and play Owain's game in the coming months but the real beauty of this whole wish is that all proceeds will be donated back to the Make-A-Wish foundation.

With PopCap behind the wheel, I'm not too worried about the game's quality, but where's the release date?!
