This War of Mine: Developers donate profits to the Ukrainian Red Cross

This War of Mine

To support and help the Ukrainian Red Cross, currently engaged in dealing with the wounded due to the Russian invasion, the developers of This War of Mine have launched a very splendid initiative. The announcement came via Twitter and it is one of the many initiatives that various development studios, Ukrainian and non-Ukrainian, have taken to help the civilian population and the military committed to repelling the Russian regime.

As announced on the social network, 11 bit Studios (which is a Polish studio) has decided to donate all proceeds from the game's sales to the Ukrainian Red Cross. “Today the Russian military attacked Ukraine, a free country, which are our neighbors. We created This War of Mine as a globally recognized anti-war game. We are against this act ”, reads the twitter. “For the next seven days, all proceeds from sales of the game and DLC will go to the Ukrainian Red Cross.”

This initiative is platform independent. That is, they will contain all sales and not just PCs. An initiative which was then followed by that of GOG, owned by CD Projekt. “After the decision of 11 bit Studios, we have decided to support the cause as well. All sales on the game from our platform will go to Ukranian Red Cross, ”a spokesperson told VGC.

There are many initiatives currently involving the video game industry. Raw Fury invited everyone to donate to the Ukrainian Red Cross, as well as Bungie who opted to donate to Game2Give, to help them create a humanitarian aid corridor. The developers of the STALKER series, on the other hand, opted to ask for donations from the Ukrainian army, which is much smaller than the Russian one and which needs support to avoid the fall of the nation.

11 bit studios to aid war victims in Ukraine through sales of This War of Mine

Even if you barely follow any political news, you have likely heard of the invasion that Russia launched against Ukraine on February 24. This conflict has already proven disastrous, but thankfully, many have initiated efforts to help Ukrainian civilians affected by the war. One such initiative has come courtesy of 11 bit studios, which some may remember as the developer behind the critically acclaimed anti-war survival game This War of Mine. Specifically, 11 bit studios stated yesterday that, for a week, all profits made from purchases of This War of Mine and its DLC expansions will go directly to the Ukrainian Red Cross to help war victims in Ukraine.

11 bit studios announced this initiative in a statement posted via its Twitter account. The developer made it clear that, as a studio hailing from Poland that addressed the horrors of war through its work, it opposes Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and all of the suffering it has caused. It acknowledged that words alone will not meaningfully affect the current situation, however, so the studio has chosen to act quickly to help the Ukrainian people, whom it referred to as its neighbors.

“Let this message resonate with everything you know about this war and how war kills people, devastates their lives and homes,” 11 bit studios wrote in its Twitter message. “Let us — players and developers together — do everything we can to support victims of war in Ukraine.”

Fortunately, 11 bit studios will not have to go about this alone. GOG recently announced in a press release that it will support the initiative. Much like 11 bit studios, the digital distribution platform plans to take its share of the profits made through sales of This War of Mine send them all to the Ukrainian Red Cross.

The conflict going on in Ukraine is nothing short of tragic, but it is nonetheless great to see the developer of This War of Mine step up to help Ukrainians in need. If you would like to experience a compelling anti-war narrative while contributing to a worthy cause at the same time, then you could do a lot worse than purchasing This War of Mine within six days.
