Last Thursday Polish indie developer 11 bit studios started donating proceeds from the purchase of its anti war survival sim This War of Mine to the Ukrainian Red Cross to help victims of the current conflict there. Within 24 hours they succeeded in raising $160,000 but there is still time to make that number bigger before the fundraising campaign ends on March 3rd. Get your copy through the Steam link below or if you’re not a Steam user, through any platform that This War of Mine can be bought from.
The statement from the 11 bit studios team on This War of Mine’s Steam News Hub feed reads as follows;

‘Today Russia military forces attacked the free country of Ukraine – our neighbours. As a Polish game studio and creators of the globally recognised anti-war game, This War of Mine – one that directly speaks about the suffering and misery of civilians who are affected by war – we’d like to hereby announce our company statement: we stand against the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Just words would be empty without a meaningful act though, and the timing is crucial, so the act is as follows: for the next seven days, all profits from This War of Mine, all its DLCs, on all stores and all platforms will go to a special fund. A week from now, this money will be donated to the Ukrainian Red Cross to directly support victims of war in Ukraine.
Let this message resonate with everything you know about this war and how war kills people, devastates their lives and homes. Let us – players and developers together – do everything we can to support victims of war in Ukraine.
sincerely, all the people of 11 bit studios’
