War Child charity games bundle is now out on Steam

Charity outing Help: The Game, which gathers 12 original titles from some of Europe's biggest studios, is now available.

The bundle, published by Sega, is available on Steam for 9.99. The games were created in six days during a worldwide game jam. All profits are being donated to charity War Child, which is devoted to helping children affected by conflict.

It includes titles developed by Bossa Studios, Creative Assembly, Curve Digital, Hardlight, Modern Dream, Rovio Sweden AB, Spilt Milk Studios, Sports Interactive, Sumo Digital, Team 17 and Torn Banner.

Miles Jacobson, Sports Interactive's studio director and Chairman of the War Child UK Help: The Game committee said: When we first revealed the plans for Help: The Game we were cautiously optimistic that it would generate some interest throughout the games business, but the level of enthusiasm that came back to us exceeded our expectations.

Having seen the results of those jams, it's obvious that the studios who've taken part have been having a lot of fun – now it is the gamers' turn.”

War Child UK CEO Rob Williams added: It's fitting that the games business has taken this project to its heart as, after all, every child should have the right to play but not all get that chance. We're extremely grateful to everyone who has agreed to get involved and we hope their efforts will not only raise much-needed funds, but also awareness of our work amongst a vast audience of gamers across the globe.”

The initiative was announced back in September 2015 by Miles Jacobson, and its content was confirmed last June.
