Charitable Games

I just wanted to take a couple of minutes and write about something that i believe to be an exception and not the rule for developers. We have seen some great charitable events running focusing on giving away packs of Indie games for whatever you want to pay, and the proceeds go to charitable foundations. One of my Xblig peers has just released a version of his game Clover: A Curious Tale on Xblig. The proceeds for this weekends sales will go to charity and that is something to be applauded.

So why are Indies so concious of charities and other causes? One would think that the bottom line for an Indie would be very important to them to be able to keep on making games. Maybe it is because what they do is theirs, and not some large corporation that has to turn a profit to make their investors happy.

To be honest i don't know the reason, only that we should all support these causes when it seems appropriate and when we are able to do so.

Good luck BinaryTweedDeej
