WDC gaming partners celebrate World Oceans Day with a whale of a Steam sale

To celebrate World Oceans Day this year we are thrilled to announce our biggest ever charity Steam sale. With an amazing collection of over 40 exciting games including ABZU, I Am Fish, Frostpunk, Sunless Sea, In Other Waters and many more, our fantastic games partners are joining forces with us to stand up for the ocean and raise vital funds to protect the whales and dolphins that call it home.

From 6pm BST on Wednesday 8th June until Monday 13th June, on the gaming platform Steam, you can enjoy some incredible discounts on these games and support our work at the same time – each title will be donating a percentage of net developer profits directly to WDC’s conservation projects.

“Our gaming partners have been such brilliant supporters of our work to protect whales and dolphins over the last few years,” says Sally Ward, WDC senior partnerships officer, “they have helped us create the world’s first beluga sanctuary, protect critically endangered Southern Resident orcas off the US West Coast, provide essential equipment to our research teams and so much more. I am so grateful and excited to see our friends and partners come together again for Oceans Day.”

“It’s amazing to see so many games companies coming together to support WDC for Oceans Day.” Says John Clark, CEO of Curve Games “What is more amazing however, is how WDC work tirelessly to protect the ocean and create safer environments for whale and dolphin populations. Creating healthy oceans, protecting whales and dolphins is so important to us all and Curve are delighted to be involved in such an important initiative.”

Curve Games' hilarous physics-based adventure game, I Am Fish, is one of the many titles included in the World Oceans Day Steam Sale.
