The UK arm of charity War Child has revealed the total for its latest games-driven Armistice fundraiser.
Last year's event -- which coincided with the 100th anniversary of the 1918 Armistice that ended World War I -- raised $380,000 for both War Child and its US partner Children in Conflict.
The initiative saw 20 games studios selling exclusive peace-themed content in war-themed games to help promote the message of peace and raise awareness of the charities' work helping children in conflict zones.
Participants included: Bandai Namco, Wargaming, PlayStack, Game Insight, Imperia Online,, Gameloft, Introversion, Digital Legends, Madfinger Games, Tencent/Miniclip, Studio Diva, Social Point, Positech Games, Amanita Design, Six Foot Europe, Fireproof Games, Devolver Digital, Dinosaur Polo Club, Revolution Software and 505 Games.
The charity highlighted 11-11: Memories Retold's narrative add-on inspired by real children's stories, Prison Architect's Peace Stand, and a virtual reality collaboration with PlayStack title $#@! Wilde as particular successes.
2018's donations means that Armistice has raised $759,695 since it first started in 2016. In total, War Child has raised $4.3 million through partnerships with the games industry.
