Castle Crashers and Alien Hominid DLC sales donated to Haiti

10:00 AM on 01.21.2010 // Joseph Leray

You know what's better than accusing Haitian earthquake victims of signing a secret pact with the devil? Buying DLC for Castle Crashers and Alien Hominid HD. Not only are Castle Crashers and Alien Hominid remarkable games, but, between now and Sunday, developer Behemoth is donating 100% of proceeds generated by DLC sales to the Haitian relief effort.

Even better: The Behemoth will match the donation out of their own (probably limited) coffers, effectively doubling your purchasing power.

For the record, there are two DLC packs available for Castle Crashers: The King Pack offers two new characters (the King and an open-visor Gray Knight), some new weapons, and a seal animal orb; The Necromantic Pack also offers two new characters (the Necromancer and the Cult Minion), new weapons, and a dragon (!) animal orb. Each of these will set you back 160 moonpoints, but will result in $4 of aid.

If the words "animal orb" don't mean anything to you, you can pick up Castle Crashers for a cool 1200 points. It's worth it.

On the other hand, Alien Hominid HD is relatively cheaper (at only 800 points) and much more difficult. You might recall that you could play games on Alien's PDA; Alien Hominid's DLC consists of packs of 100 extra games, priced at 150 bananadollars a pop. Once The Behemoth matches your contribution, you're looking at close to $3.75 in aid.

If you're looking for an excuse to add some zest to your Behemoth games, the time is now.
