Polish company 11 bit Studios has announced that over the next seven days it will be donating all profits from its anti-war survival game This War of Mine to the Ukrainian Red Cross.
For the next week, “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.”
