As of June 15th, 2012, we have so far raised and donated $34,494.20 for Child’s Play! That’s $3752.31 since our December update, all of which has already gone directly to the charity. In 2011 we managed to raise a total of $20,212.18, which smashed our 2010 numbers and well more than doubled our original goal of $14,000.00.
This year is starting out slower since the expansion is aging, but a lot of our biggest income comes in the summer and the holiday season, so who knows. Either way, we couldn’t be more pleased to be continually supporting such a worthy cause.
When you purchase AI War: Children Of Neinzul, you’re not only getting an exciting new expansion, you’re also supporting an important cause. Arcen Games has partnered with the Child’s Play charity, pledging 100% of the profits from sale of Children of Neinzul (excepting any taxes and distributor fees) to helping sick kids in need.
The staff at Arcen has long admired the work done by Child’s Play, and we’re very excited to finally be able to contribute in a substantial manner. Our goal for 2010 was to raise $14,000.00 USD for Child’s Play, but even after 2010 all of the proceeds from this micro-expansion are continuing to be donated to the charity.
At the moment, this micro-expansion is available directly through the Arcen Online Store ($1.99 USD), as well as through Steam, Impulse, and GamersGate.
