That simple fact – that it’s hard to be a real hero – makes us stand up and take note when someone manages to transfer in-game heroism to helping others in the real world, and today that notice goes to N3V Games, who announced that they will donate 50% of revenues from each purchase that Runes of Magic players make on special in-game items to help victims of the devastating flooding in Queensland, Australia.
The special charity event kicks off at 12am, Saturday January 15 and finishes at midnight on Sunday January 23rd.
Players of Runes of Magic Gold can contribute to the project by buying the (permanent) Star Mounts or Flame Mounts for their in-game character. The mounts cost 225 diamonds (roughly $12) and N3V Games will donate 50% of all revenues for each mount sold to the Queensland Premiers Flood Relief Appeal.
N3V Games CEO Graham Edelsten stressed that these events have hit close to home, and that N3V wanted to do their bit to help – “As a Queensland-based company, we have many guys living in Brisbane who have been affected by the floods. This charity event is our way of showing our support for all of those affected by these unfortunate events.”
