Hinterland Games, the team behind The Long Dark, have announced a Social Distancing Fundraiser in the wake of Coronavirus.

They’re actually partnering with the United Nations Foundation to raise money for the World Health Organization’s COVID-19 response.

Going on now until next Tuesday, you can fight your own cabin fever by buying The Long Dark for 60% off during our special Social Distancing Fundraiser on Steam. They stress that 100% of the revenue earned from the fundraiser goes directly to the United Nations Foundation’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization.

"This urgent moment calls for urgent global cooperation,” said Elizabeth Cousens, President & CEO of the UN Foundation in a press release, “And we need everyone – across all sectors – to work together. I am grateful to Hinterland for contributing to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization. Their donation will help make sure health workers on the frontlines have the tools they need to prevent, detect, and respond to this pandemic.”
