Thanks to blockbusters like Lords Mobile, IGG has become one of the most successful mobile game studios in the world, raking in unimaginable quantities of cash. Thankfully, it has the right ideas about how to spend that cash.
Over the last few months alone IGG has supported a range of charitable causes, including War Child UK – for which it sold a limited edition War Child UK Armistice Pack through Lords Mobile – and Make A Wish International.
That initiative saw players designing a playground-themed castle, which IGG then transformed into a castle skin that players could purchase at the Lords Mobile in-game store, with the proceeds going to Make A Wish.
When coronavirus came along, IGG got straight down to business, setting up a donation fund for the residents of Wuhan, where the outbreak originated and was for a time the most severe.
IGG’s international offices joined the effort, with staff in Belarus, Japan, Brazil, Indonesia, and the US all going to great lengths to procure medical supplies for the citizens of Wuhan, sometimes driving great distances and working long hours to obtain the necessary equipment.
That was then, when all eyes were on Wuhan. Now the virus has spread around the world, and IGG has changed tack, donating supplies to Italy, Korea, Japan, and the US. So far the company has sent N95 masks to Kaiser Permanente Medical Group, Stanford Hospital, and the City of Fremont Police Department, with many more donations planned.
IGG even opened a donation request survey earlier in the month and received a huge 187 responses.
