January 14th, 2020 - Warsaw, Poland


At the very moment, the whole world is watching Australia suffer due to the unprecedented, disastrous bushfire activity.

We want to unite with Australia in this especially difficult hour as it is really hard to stay idly and watch this catastrophe. We feel obliged to help, as Australia with its wildlife is the motherland of Kao the Kangaroo - main character of our platformer series. 

We believe that together with our dearest community we can contribute to the worldwide donations and help those who are in need.  

From January 9th until January 19th, 2020 all the profit (100%) from sales of Kao the Kangaroo: Round 2 on Steam will be donated to the WIRES (NSW Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Service Inc.)

The sales report and the wire transfer confirmation will be openly available afterward.  

Kao the Kangaroo: Round 2 is available for only 1.99 USD/EUR on Steam and will provide a lot of joy to the players but it will also help to support Australia in this wildfire crisis.  

It is a great feeling to start the new year with a good deed on your account! 

We will be very grateful for sharing this information with your audience and for helping us to spread the word #Kao4Australia
