As of February 3rd, 2011, we have so far raised and donated $14,798.42! We missed our 2010 goal by about $4,000, but less than a month later we made it! Most of the money earned by our games is actually paid on "net 30" or "net 60" terms to us, meaning that the money that pushed us over the top was actually earned in 2010. So that's something!
We'll post monthly updates on how the donations are doing, so you can always see the updated number. We're so proud to have been able to contribute to such a worthy cause in a substantial way! Check us out on the platinum sponsors list on the Child's Play site.
More About AI War: Children of Neinzul and Child's Play
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 ($3.99 USD), as well as through Steam, Impulse, and GamersGate.
