Axiom Verge Publisher Donating 75% Of Profits For Healthcare For Developer’s Son

BadLand Games who are publishing Axiom Verge have announced that they are doing something really special and heartwarming for Tom Happ’s son. Here’s what the team are planning to do:

“Before I go, I’d just like to take a moment and give a special shout out to the publisher, BadLand Games. As you may have seen elsewhere on my blog and Twitter, I’ve tried to be pretty open about my son Alastair’s health situation. In short, he was born healthy, but the doctors failed to treat a routine case of jaundice during a critical period when he was just days old. The result was a life-long condition called Kernicterus that is characterized by severe neurological damage which robbed Alastair of much of his motor control and hearing. The reason I mention this is that after we decided to move forward with BadLand Games as the publisher, they offered to donate 75% of their share to a special fund dedicated to Alastair’s ongoing health care costs. They didn’t want to publicize it, since none of us wanted to be seen as trying to use my son’s suffering as a marketing tool for the game. I hope this doesn’t come off that way. I just wanted to thank them for their generosity in offering that up, since it was definitely something they didn’t have to do.”

  1. For any of you who haven’t purchased this yet, it is very much a metroid game and it has excellent music and you’ll also be helping someone out so you can’t go wrong buying this excellent game.

  2. That’s awesome. All publishers could learn a thing from these guys. Most would only give out around 10-25% of the profit, rarely, if ever, 75%.
