Swedish game publisher Paradox Interactive is best known for its grand strategy and RPG franchises. Now they’re helping to raise funds for the World Health Organisation’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund by holding a sale on Steam.
The fundraiser sale will run on Steam from now until 7pm CEST on 3 April 2020 or 1am GMT+8 on 4 April 2020 for countries in Southeast Asia like Malaysia or Singapore. Proceeds from the sale will be donated to the WHO in their battle against the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic.

- Age Of Wonders: Planetfall – RM40

Head on over here to the Paradox Interactive fundraiser Steam page to purchase any of these games and contribute to the WHO’s effort against COVID-19. I personally recommend any of the Shadowrun games (all of which are great turn-based sci-fi RPGs) and Tyranny (by RPG masters Obsidian Entertainment).
