The gaming community has rallied around an important cause.
Blizzard Entertainment made a downloadable piece of content, a pet named Argi, available as a charitable download. As long as players purchased the “cute little intergalactic nibbler” before Dec. 31, proceeds benefited the Red Cross.
Adopting Argi would set players back $10.
Earlier this year gamers came together for Awesome Games Done Quick, a week-long video game speedrunning marathon in which viewers could throw in money to help the Prevent Cancer Foundation. Gamers donated a record-breaking $1.5 million.
