Skiing Yeti Mountain | Proceeds to Nepal

25 May, 2015

 

Skiing Yeti Mountain is a new game from Sydney-based studio, Featherweight Games. The game sees you “carve your way through hundreds of levels as you search for the elusive Yeti. Weave through trees, skid over ice, launch off cliffs and get to know a cast of bizarre locals in this top-down extreme slalom adventure.” The fun game, however, has a serious side. Tim Kaldor–one half of the team–has pledged all of his revenues to victims of the Nepal earthquakes.

Tim explains:

“This is a lighthearted game, but it was made at a serious time. Having lived and worked in Nepal, this game was created with the beautiful Himalayas fresh in mind. The recent earthquake which devastated the country has left so many people without homes and other vital infrastructure, including my girlfriend and her family, whose village was flattened.

I will be donating my profits from this game to the rebuilding effort. Please consider joining me and donating to any reputable organisation for the rebuilding effort in this wonderful country in need.”
