Videogame Efforts for Japan

Share |

There are several efforts within the gaming community that are raising money for the earthquake and tsunami relief in Japan. Here are some that we are aware of:

Direct2Drive

For every game purchased at D2D through March 21st, D2D will donate $1 to the American Red Cross. Additionally, many of D2D's game publisher partners are on board to match donations, including Paradox, 2k Games, Atari and many, many more. The full list of participants can be found here: http://www.direct2drive.com/staticpage.aspx?topic=relief

EVE Online

Beginning March 14, 2011 and ending March 31, 2011 at 23:59 UTC, CCP will be accepting PLEX donations for PLEX for Good: Japan. Each donation will be converted into cash currency and donated to the Red Cross. We are truly honored to help catalyze this global player effort.

Global Agenda

Hi-Rez Studios has pledged to donate 100% of this weekend’s website game sales to Red Cross’ Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami relief effort. This promotion and donation opportunity is available to gamers world-wide at www.globalagendagame.com/japanrelief.

PopCap

PopCap will discount all of its iPhone and iPad games this weekend, beginning at 12:01AM PT tonight, donating all revenues from the 48-hour sale to the Red Cross in support of earthquake relief efforts in Japan. The company's iPhone games will be reduced to $1 each, while its two iPad apps, notably Plants vs. Zombies HD, will be offered for $2 apiece.

Paradox Interactive

Paradox will match Direct2Drive’s $1 per game donation, meaning $2 for every game sold will be given to victims of the Japanese catastrophe via the Red Cross.
