At the very moment, the whole world is watching Australia suffer due to the unprecedented, disastrous bushfire activity.

We want to unite with Australia in this especially difficult hour as it is really hard to stay idly and watch this catastrophe. We feel obliged to help, as Australia with its wildlife is the motherland of Kao the Kangaroo.

From January 9th until January 19th, 2020 all the profit (100%) from sales of Kao the Kangaroo: Round 2 on Steam will be donated to the WIRES (NSW Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Service Inc.)
The sales report and the wire transfer confirmation will be openly available afterward.

i got the game for free before, soo now

I hope they put those arsonists in jail for a long time. They have only made a bad situation worse.

Really? Cos it was actually arsonists who set the Nelson fire ablaze where I live.
I agree that arsonists may not have caused all the fires that are going on now, but I bet there is some truth in the reports.

There was one arrested very early on in the bushfire season iirc, but the vast majority of the fires had nothing to do with arson.

All the fake news sites are saying Climate Change and debunked arsonists, though.

There ARE arsonists at "play" in this, but nowhere near as many as most people would have you believe...last I saw there was something like 24 arrests for arson, far less than the 90% figure a lot of idiots are pushing. There have also been careless idiots discarding lit cigarettes incorrectly, and at least one dude who inadvertently started a fire when a wheel came off his trailer and sparks from the axle started a fire (but he called 000 the moment he realised what had happened), and a bunch of people cautioned for ignoring total fire bans, but most of the fires are caused/spread by insane weather conditions

Most of them are kids - teens. As you know it's a slap on the wrist for them, but if I did it as a kid, I'd be wanting gaol instead of punishment from my dad.
Since people have died, there's an automatic 10yr sentence for pyromaniacs. But we know that won't happen.

But the article says "prawns" are just what the Australians call shrimp? I thought they were supposed to be different?

The devs of Universim pledged 100% revenue in the next 2 months to the cause, too.
(This includes the upcoming sale too, if it will get discounted)

That's what I was thinking as well, it was given for free so besides the people that missed it, most already own it

More than that, unless Valve has had a change of heart since previous "100% to charity" offerings, Valve still insists on their 30% cut even with charity-oriented freebies. (As was clarified by previous publishers related to such offerings.) So anyone intending to buy it for charity, after taking into account that it was free before, is looking at a net loss compared to just donating directly via other options [eg, by buying a Humble Bundle, selecting a related charity, and setting 100% of the purchase to go to the charity; Which would both yield more valuable games and do more for charity].

100% of profits, not sale price. Very few charities have ever used 100% of the money for the cause either since there are always some operational costs.

Also please show me a single charity that accepts Steam wallet.

how much in their pocket first for "salary" ? at what point do they consider it to be would-be "profit" ? this could easily be opportunists jumping on a free advertising and rush from the news with false charity

I hope they catch the arsonists. So many fires aren't going up on themselves.

Thanks for making me aware. Got it for free previously, so just going to gift a copy to a friend. =)

hahaha! As hilarious as that is...

Started as a protest vs the Irish government with 100% of the proceeds going to a homelessness charity here in Ireland. Download sales skyrocketed in Aussieland too, so all proceeds there are going towards the fire relief charities.
