Armistice 2019 launched by War Child UK and Children in Conflict

War Child UK and Children in Conflict today return with their annual charity gaming fundraiser, Armistice 2019, which encourages peaceful gameplay during the month of November to coincide with Armistice Day.

This year the charity has partnered with its friends at Failbetter Games, I Got Games, Digital Legends and Game Insight to create exclusive in-game content that will raise funds to support children affected by conflict.

Furthermore, a huge number of peace-promoting titles from Inkle, Snap Finger Click, Brain&Brain!, Dinosaur Polo Club, Oddworld Inhabitants, Bedtime Digital Games, Revolution Software and more will be discounted across Steam and Mobile. Gaming personalities Outside Xbox will also host the War Child Armistice Live-stream alongside special guests.

Failbetter Games will today be launching a free update to its critically-acclaimed title Sunless Skies, which will introduce a new mascot to the literary horror RPG: the Sky-Worn Urchin. Orphaned by the Winchester War, the Urchin now stows away on locomotives, intending to see every corner of the sky. Sunless Skies and Failbetter’s previous title Sunless Sea will both be available at a discount on Steam during Armistice 2019.

Additional in-game Armistice 2019 activations are as follows:
