Crytivo, indie game publisher and developer of the Early Access game The Universim are today doing a big charity funding drive to benefit One Tree Planted.
Starting at 10 AM PST / 5PM UTC, their team will stream for 32 hours straight on Twitch to raise money for the charity. One dollar donated will be one tree in real life, plus they've adjusted The Universim to have a tree appear on the world each time too - which is pretty clever. Not only that, the names of donors will also "be immortalized on the planet during and after the event when we upload an interactable planet to the web, as a sort of monument to their awesomeness". Oh, they're also going to be giving away a bunch of games from lots of partners.
This is the type of charity steam I love to see to benefit a good cause.
Why now though? Well, today is "Earth Day", a worldwide event focused on the climate and various environmental issues which affect us all.
