The Rock of Ages 3 publisher has launched the Modus Games Giving Back initiative, a charity program that will "contribute to causes close to [the developer's] hearts."
Rock of Ages 3: Make & Break is a silly game that blends tower defense gameplay with arcade action. Players have to work their way through a course that serves as a somewhat loose and fantastical retelling of world history. Although Modus Games has published quite a few games — most recently Remothered: Broken Porcelain — it is Rock of Ages 3 that is getting a specific focus for the first step of this new charity program.
How the Modus Games Giving Back Initiative is Helping Charities
The Modus Games Giving Back initiative has selected the Exceptional Women Awardees as its first recipient of a donation. A $10,000 donation will be given during a special livestream on twitch.tv/modus_games on October 21, 2020, at 1:00 PM EDT.
"Games Giving Back is an important way for us to further contribute to causes close to our hearts, and we’re honored to help advance the mission of EWA by sponsoring exceptional women in business," Modus CEO Christina Seelye said in the announcement.
The Exceptional Women Awardees mentors women by teaching them valuable corporate and organizational skills. Each accepted Candidate will receive 9 in-person days and bimonthly Zoom sessions featuring a group of women leaders.
Future Modus Games Giving Back donations will be revealed in upcoming events. For now, there's a good opportunity to get one of Modus' games at a nice discount! You can buy Rock of Ages 3 on Steam at a 35% discount for the next two days. If you'd like to help out this specific charity, you can donate to the Exceptional Women Awardees.
