Because of the $25000 directly donated by iam8bit, the charity has a minimum guarantee. According to gamespot, more than $58000 was donated to the charity rainforest trust after the companies calculated their earnings during this period.
Rainforest trust, a charity dedicated to rainforest conservation around the world, has protected 33 million acres of land by working with local organizations and communities to build protected areas. Thanks to donations from moon studios, skybound games and iam8bit, they were able to protect 29000 acres of land.
Jon Gibson, the co owner of iam8bit, said that based on the stories they told, they felt they needed to do their part to protect the environment. The series “ori” is about the protection of the forest and its residents. As game publishers, they decided to use the game’s marketing budget in another way, hoping to trigger players’ actions.
