Indie Royale raises $25,000 for worthy causes with 'All-Charity Pack'

Indie Royale raises $25,000 for worthy causes with 'All-Charity Pack'

May 25, 2012 | By Staff




Gamasutra sister site Indie Royale has revealed that its latest PC gaming bundle, the 'All-Charity Pack', raised over $25,000 for charities hand-picked by independent developers.

The bundle's generous developers each hand-picked a charity that a share of proceeds would be donated to, with Osmos developer Hemisphere Games choosing UNICEF's Haiti aid, and Blueberry Garden creator Erik Svedang picking the vital human rights work from Amnesty International

In addition, Die Gute Fabrik, the creators of B.U.T.T.O.N., picked free speech and privacy advocacy from the EFF, and Wadjet Eye Games, makers of The Shivah, chose the global poverty programs of ActionAid.

Also donating their music to the bundle if a certain amount was pledged were Jake Kaufman, creator of 'FX4', a virtuoso NES-style jam from the Shantae and Retro City Rampage composer, as well as Fez soundtrack creator Disasterpeace with his acclaimed 2008 concept album 'Level', and Super Time Force composer 6955 with the 'IN1ep'.

The co-creators of IndieRoyale, Gamasutra sister site IndieGames.com and download store Desura, also waived all fees related to the bundle.

This meant that a total of $25,529.68 (after credit card/PayPal fees) was raised for the four charities, with some generous gamers giving as much as $200 to these good causes.

More information on Indie Royale, which will launch its next full bundle in the near future, is available at its official website or via its Facebook and Twitter pages.
