The Universim Australia

Yesterday, we reported on Onion Soup Interactive donating their profits from Nippon Marathon to Australia relief efforts. Now, Crytivo has announced that they'll be donating a significant portion of profits from their Early Access game The Universim to relief efforts in Australia.

If you're unfamiliar with The Universim, it's a pretty neat game where you can take command of an entire planet. Guide a civilization of Nuggets from their early days all the way up to a more modern era from the perspective of a god. Will you be merciful, vengeful, or both? The decision is yours!

Now, Crytivo has announced that they'll be donating profits from The Universim to Australia relief efforts, although how much they donate will depend on where you buy the game.

Buy The Universim and Help Australia

As noted in a news post on the game's Steam Community page, Crytivo will be donating a minimum of 30% of their profits for two months for every copy of The Universim sold.

However, that only applies to the Steam version of the game. If you buy it from the Crytivo Store, they'll donate 100% of the money they receive from the sale. That's pretty darn generous, especially since they'll be doing it for "this month and the next" as noted in the Steam Community news post.

Crytivo doesn't specify which charity or charities will be receiving the money they raise through this program, but there's no shortage of good causes that can put the cash to good use. For now, you can buy The Universim at the links above for $29.99 or your regional equivalent.
