Charitable program to roll out with Modus Twitch Streaming Event on Oct. 21
Walnut Creek, Calif. (Oct. 20, 2020) – Independent games publisher Modus Games today announced Games Giving Back, an ongoing charitable initiative which will see the label contributing a series of donations supporting important causes.
The program will consist of a sequence of donations benefiting charities chosen to align with Modus Games’ portfolio of releases.
Games Giving Back will kick off on Oct. 21 at 10am PDT with a livestreaming event via Modus Games’ Twitch channel, during which the benefiting charity will receive a donation in recognition of Rock of Ages 3: Make & Break’s release in late August.
To celebrate Rock of Ages 3, a game which cleverly tells a reimaged history of the world and invites players to build their own custom courses, Modus Games is donating $10,000 to The Exceptional Women Awardees Foundation (EWA), a program that empowers and equips women of all backgrounds with the tools necessary to advance the course of their careers through coaching and mentorship.
“Games Giving Back is an important way for us to further contribute to causes close to our hearts, and we’re honored to help advance the mission of EWA by sponsoring exceptional women in business,” said Christina Seelye, CEO of Modus Games.
“Christina Seelye is a member of our Advisory Board and has contributed to EWA financially as well as with her time, talent and leadership since the inception of EWA,” commented Larraine Segil, Chair and CEO of The Exceptional Women Awardees Foundation. “Her company’s generous contributions have gone to support the candidacy of diverse women and we are so grateful for Modus Games’ commitment to paying it forward to other women who are rising in their careers.”
The livestream will be hosted by Modus Games’ community manager who will be joined by the game’s developers as they play custom stages built by the Rock of Ages 3: Make & Break community.
Future Games Giving Back donations will be revealed during upcoming events joined by developers and community guests in support of additional worthy causes.
