Polish studio smashes campaign target

Mobile game developer Huuuge Games has proudly announced that it has smashed its “Wish 200 Week” fundraising event, with a grand total of around $490,000 USD raised for the UK Make-A-Wish Foundation, the non-profit organization that facilitates dream requests for critically ill children.

As reported by GamesIndustry.biz, Wish 200 Week, which took place between July 18-22, saw Huuuge Games partner with numerous publishers, developers, and streamers to engage in five days of fundraising efforts. British studio Hutch and Swiss browser game builder Miniclip were also involved in the event, the second of which to be held within the past two years.

“We are extremely proud that the united gaming community came together once again to help Make-A-Wish UK with their Wish 200 Week, with this donation a lot of ill children and their families will see their gaming dreams come to life,” said Huuuge Games co-CEO Rod Cousens in a press release. “Gaming is a big part of young people’s lives and we know how it can be a great escape from the troubles of real life. We are especially glad that 200 children in need will have their gaming wishes granted with our help.”

All of the money raised will go directly to Make-A-Wish UK, where it will be used to fund the wishes of 200 children. For more details on the work done by Make-A-Wish UK, visit the official website.
