A charity drive aimed at having the end sequence of EA and Bioware's Mass Effect 3 altered has seen a surge of donors during its first day, with over $30,000 contributed.

Mass Effect 3 launched earlier this month, and is the final game in the Mass Effect trilogy, ending the story of Commander Shepard.

However, a number of fans of the series are not happy with the way in which the story ends, and are petitioning for Bioware to add alternate endings to the game in order to provide better explanations and closure.

"We believe that it is the right of the writers and developers of the Mass Effect series to end that series however they see fit," explains the pledge page, with which these gamers are urging Bioware to add new endings.

It continues, "However, we also believe that the currently available endings to the series do not provide the wide range of possible outcomes that we have come to expect from a Mass Effect game."

The "Retake Mass Effect 3" campaign also acts as a charity drive for the Child's Play foundation, and people who donate to the cause will see their money go directly to the charity.

Gamasutra has contacted EA and Bioware regarding a response to the charity drive.
