As of December 30th, 2010, we have so far raised and donated $10,529.71! We didn't quite hit our goal for the year, but we did raise a substantial amount of money -- and also, bear in mind that a lot of the money generated in 2010 is actually paid on "net 30" or "net 60" terms to us, meaning that money generated in 2010 will still be arriving as late as February 2011.
Given that foreknowledge, it looks like we will be very close to our goal by the end
of January or February. We'll keep posting monthly
updates on how the donations are doing, so check back even in 2011!
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 was to raise $14,000.00 USD for Child's Play in 2010, but even after 2010 all of the proceeds from this micro-expansion
will continue 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.
