This cause has resonated with creators across the globe, to the point where our bundle contains nearly 1,000 games, tabletop RPGs, books, etc.”
All proceeds for this Ukrainian game pack, organized by Necrosoft Games, will be split 50/50 between two charities: the International Medical Corps which provides medical assistance to those in need, and the English Language.
