Do you want to make the world a slightly better place and be rewarded some games for being an awesome human being? It's simple: choose a charity you like from the three we have here (WWF, Worldbuilders, and Gaming for Good), pick out 3 games you like out of 13 offered, pay $5 or more, and we will give 100% of your donation to charity*! You can also pick more than 3 games, and your minimum donation will be raised accordingly. Want to donate more? No problem--you can set the amount manually. Don't need the games, or already have them? Select the "Gift this order" option at the checkout, and make some other gamer happy. Again, your choice of charity to help:

Gaming for Good - click to donate and choose your reward
We've added three more titles to this special promo selection, thanks to awesome indie developers, who volunteered their games to take part in this charitable action. The newly added games are: Anodyne by Analgesic Productions, a psychological retro adventure game with nostalgic action-RPG feel and deep story, bundled with MP3 soundtrack, Escape Goat by Magical Time Bean, a captivating puzzle-platformer with many clever and challenging stages, and 8-bitish retro visuals, and Gemini Rue by Wadjet Eye Games, a gritty neo-noir point-and-click adventure game masterfully mixing Sci-Fi and crime mystery genres. Thank you for making this happen, guys!
Our whole-hearted thanks also go to: Introversion Software (Darwinia), Subset Games (FTL: Faster Than Light), Tiger Style Games (Waking Mars), Amanita Design (Botanicula), Instant Kingdom (Driftmoon), Northway Games (Incredipede), Digital Game Factory (Creatures: Village), Might & Delight (Pid), Daedalic Entertainment (The Whispered World), and Oddworld Inhabitants (Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee).. All of the devs are receiving nothing for their games in this charity but the good karma that comes from doing a good deed. Take a moment and tweet, facebook, or email them and tell them how much you appreciate their participation in this, and then you'll be extra awesome yourself. :)
*GOG.com is paying out some money as well; for every $1 donated, it costs us about $0.25 to cover the credit card fees, taxes, and other fees to make sure that literally 100% of what you donate goes to charity. So, let's say you want to donate $10. We'll add about $2.50 on top of that, to make sure that all of your donated money reaches the charity of your choice.

kurokamui: You do, of course realize that lobbying is part of being a charity right? That contributing funds to the campaigns of people who are sympathetic to your cause helps to ensure their re-election and in turn makes it easier for your charity to operate. This is how politics work, it has nothing to do with buying sports cars.

StickOfPlywood: I suppose the little tidbit about several of the people being supported by these particular political lobbies (including Obama) being advocates of drone warfare against "terrorists" (AKA innocent civilians more than 1/2 the time) means nothing to you?
Yes, yes we can all see that you don't like Obama with your cute little parenthesis. Duly noted. Also your drone strike numbers are absurdly inaccurate. Even Pakistan's official numbers don't reflect that and they have the most reason to be critical of the program. Now, seeing as this whole thing really has nothing to do with gaming and I've clearly let you antagonize me far too long I will be bowing out of this conversation.

Zacron: Where is the link to the Promo Page? I see a lot of links now that you have added the new games, but I can't find the one to actually take us to the promo page.

G-Doc: There you go:

"Again, your choice of charity to help:

There are also clickable tiles under the main header on the front page.

Hope that helps!
Oh, See I thought those took me to an info page for those Charities, oops.

leaguehq: With the addition of the 3 new games, I noticed that you cannot select more than 10 games, which was the original number offered. Hopefully, that's a quick fix.
It should be fixed right now. Could you check if it works? :)

Yup. Thanks!
Exactly three games in this promo, which I don't own, already:

One, that I'm absolutely not interested in;
one, that I already own (DRM-free) three (?) times through some bundles;
and one, that I own through some bundle, but found not interesting /good enough to warrant a second buy.

TET mentions "Richard & Alice" in "This Week on GOG - Episode 40", but I don't see it in the list. Will it be added or was it mentioned by mistake?

And will there be any more games added?
Another great initiative by GOG. Not very familiar with the charities but I guess WWF is a worthwile cause.
By the way, is it possible to donate and pick less than 3 games? The page desn't seem to allow it.

"FTL, Oddworld, Richard and Alice and 7 more tittles..."

hmm.. I think something is wrong here..

tinyE: I'm getting Abe's Odyssey so I can get rid of my cd AND because the protagonist has a great name worn by great people who are also incredibly handsome and happen to have giant penises.

As for the other two I'm a little lost here. I don't really light up at any of them but for the sake of charity why not? Does FTL have a difficulty setting? How is Creatures, it actually looks a little too 'Barney & Friends'.
I like the Creatures games, and there is definitely an appeal to Creatures Village because of its comparative simplicity. Yes it is designed for children, but if you are overwhelmed by the number of critters you have to rescue from suicide in the rest of the series, Village is a simpler starting point, and the graphics are nice and big.

Maybe later, I snagged Abe, FTL, and Darwinia. I'm really enjoying FTL so far though I'm only working on the basic stuff. If I want suicidal animals I'll play Lemmings. :D
Awww man, I originally had Creatures Village in my pack because I already owned everything else, even thought I had precisely zero interest in it, would it be too cheeky and not getting in the charitable spirit if I asked if I could take it back to the shop and swap it for Escape Goat? Now that it's been added? I've not downloaded it or anything so its still got the metaphorical cellophane intact and everything....

Agreed. This is the first time I've heard of it but it looks like an interesting game.
