Arcane's Child's Play Charity Drive

September 15, 2010 -

Indie game developer Arcane Games updates on its sale of the micro-expansion for AI War (thanks Blue's News). The reason why it matters is that the company is selling the Children Of Neinzul expansion and giving the proceeds away to Child's Play. So far, the company has raised $500 in change, but its goal is to raise $14,000 for the children's charity.

As this charitable endeavor continues, the company is facing some financial trouble, detailed in the same post:

"The rest of this long post is background and explanation about how this came about and our business model in general, as well a request for help at the end, with ideas for how fans can contribute without spending a dime (as a commercial enterprise, we dislike asking for donations, though occasionally players offer)."

Arcen Games has made several AI War games, as well as a puzzle game called Tidalis. AI War is a large-scale RTS with a TBS layer, tower defense, and grand strategy - set in space. The company has released one expansion for AI War called The Zenith Remnant. 

I recommend reading this post to learn more about the company, its games and what small developers face on a daily basis.

CMinerThere is no journalism/ethics concern that you've raised that would be made weaker by not raising it under the umbrella of GamerGate.10/24/2014 - 9:32am
CMinerNeo: You want to start some healing? Stop using the GamerGate hashtag. Even if you don't believe that it originated with harassers, you have to see that it's been irrevocably tainted by their actions.10/24/2014 - 9:31am
MaskedPixelanteGOG has a four day countdown to their next publisher. All hints suggest Disney, but no guarantee it'll be LucasArts.10/24/2014 - 6:58am
Neo_DrKefkawith a neutral party Moderating it. I've been waiting a long time for a GamerGate to happen but now all I want is the healing to start. Weird huh? Gamers don't need to be attacking gamers we should all be on the same side10/24/2014 - 12:39am
Neo_DrKefkaRight now from what I seen your tweet and the other guys tweet there are hard feelings. Until we start a dialogue with each other I think it will get worse before it will get better. I hope you guys work something out meet in a neutral stream10/24/2014 - 12:37am
Neo_DrKefkaThanks James. Even if a hot/hard headed person likes me thinks the public needs to sit down and discuss this together. We all might not agree right now but if the public does not start talking to each other we are not going anywhere.10/24/2014 - 12:36am
