In the wake of the devastating events in the Gaza region, it’s impossible for us to sit by and merely observe. The numbers themselves are heart-wrenching – as of today, October 27th, 2023, over 3,000 innocent children have lost their lives due to Israeli bombings. But these numbers only scratch the surface of the pain and suffering endured by the Palestinian people. Beyond this staggering loss of young lives, the region has witnessed countless civilian casualties, the destruction of entire residential blocks, and debilitating shortages of essential resources like food, water, electricity, gas, and first aid. The recent halt in Internet telecommunications further isolates the people of Gaza, cutting them off from the rest of the world.
These ruthless attacks came following the Hamas organization’s indiscriminate kidnapping and mass murder targeting hundreds of innocent Israeli civilians, many of whom were young men and women attending a nearby dance party.
We understand that we are just a small entity in the vast digital landscape. As an applied cryptography consultancy and software publisher, our immediate influence might seem minimal in the grand scheme of things. However, we firmly believe in the power of collective action and the ripple effects of individual contributions.
In light of this, we are proud to announce a special initiative: From October 27th, 2023, to October 31st, 2024, 100% of every purchase of our flagship puzzle adventure game, Dr. Kobushi’s Labyrinthine Laboratory, will directly support the people of Gaza. The full revenue from these sales will be donated to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency’s Gaza Emergency Appeal.
We understand that not everyone is a gamer, but we encourage you to share this initiative with friends, family, and your broader network. Spreading the word can amplify our collective impact. Furthermore, for those who wish to contribute directly, we recommend donating to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency or other trusted organizations working tirelessly on the ground. This contribution comes on top of independent contributions that Symbolic Software and its staff will also make to UNRWA’s Gaza effort.
In these trying times, let’s come together as a global community and prove that compassion, unity, and action can make a difference. Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Gaza, and we stand in solidarity with them. Your support can bring hope and much-needed relief to a region in desperate need.
We understand the importance of trust, especially when it comes to charitable contributions. Therefore, in the coming months, we will periodically publish official receipts and acknowledgments from the United Nations Relief and Works Agency to confirm the successful transfer of funds. Our community deserves to see the tangible impact of their support, and we pledge to keep you informed, engaged, and confident that every cent is going directly to those in need in Gaza.
Together, let’s game for a cause and play our part in rebuilding Gaza.
Dr. Kobushi’s Labyrinthine Laboratory is available on Steam, Itch.io, Nintendo Switch eShop and Mac App Store. 100% of all produced revenue from game sales made through the aforementioned sources between October 27th, 2023 and October 31st, 2024 will be donated directly to the UNRWA’s Gaza fund.
