Australia Day 2020

Nightwraith | Thursday, September 24, 2020

Surprise Monday release! This time we're celebrating Austraila Day 2020! We've never marked this holiday in EpicDuel before, which is a shame since we have so many Australian players. This year was the year to change that and give this beautiful country some overdue recognition in-game!

Australian Wildfires and How to Help

2019 was an especially hard year from Australia, with wildfires devastating thousands of homes, millions of acres of forest and over a billion animals. If you'd like to help, the following resources have been collected by AQW's Design Notes post:

If you'd like to help, we've checked out the following charities, and they are legit.

  • St. Vincent de Paul society (helping evacuated families recover, providing food and clothing, etc)
  • Country Fire Authority (Managing locals providing shelter for evacuated families)
  • World Animal Protection (supporting local wildlife organizations across Australia)
  • RSPCA New South Wales (evacuating animals to safety)

This is a global emergency, and it will impact more than Australia. We don't usually get quite so serious in our game design notes posts, but this is one of those times where you can be a hero in our videogames AND in the real world.

Doing Our Part to Help: A Donation In Your Name

We've received many messages asking how to help those affected by Australia's wildfires. We're making a a $500 donation on your behalf to to the RSPCA New South Wales, a charity helping rescue animals endangered by the wildfires. Thank you for enabling us to make this donation.
