BadLand Games donerà il 75% della sua quota per aiutare Alastair, ossia il figlio di Thomas Happ. Ecco i dettagli:
- BadLand Games will be donating 75% of its share to a special fund that will help cover the healthcare costs for Happ's son, Alastair;
it's with a heavy heart that we say doctors failed to treat Alastair with a routine case of jaundice when he was just days old. This sadly left him with Kernicterus that severely impacts his motor control and hearing. Happ says BadLand "Didn't want to publicize it, since none of us wanted to be seen as trying to use my son's suffering as a marketing tool for the game."
Di seguito le parole di Thomas Happ, ossia il creatore di Axiom Verge:
- "Before I go, I'd just like to take a moment and give a special shout out to the publisher, BadLand Games. As you may have seen elsewhere on my blog and Twitter, I've tried to be pretty open about my son Alastair's health situation. In short, he was born healthy, but the doctors failed to treat a routine case of jaundice during a critical period when he was just days old. The result was a life-long condition called Kernicterus that is characterized by severe neurological damage which robbed Alastair of much of his motor control and hearing.
- The reason I mention this is that after we decided to move forward with BadLand Games as the publisher, they offered to donate 75% of their share to a special fund dedicated to Alastair's ongoing health care costs. They didn't want to publicize it, since none of us wanted to be seen as trying to use my son's suffering as a marketing tool for the game. I hope this doesn't come off that way! I just wanted to thank them for their generosity in offering that up, since it was definitely something they didn't have to do."
