Square Enix Stay Home & Play bundle cuts price of 54 games by 95% for charity

Japanese publisher Square Enix has cut the price of 54 of its games by 95 per cent in order to raise money for charity.

The Stay Home & Play campaign aims to raise money for charity during this period of social distancing, with 100 per cent of revenue from sales of the bundle going to food banks "and more." This is across North America and Europe. 

The bundle features titles from the company's more recent history, like 2015's Rise of the Tomb Raider and 2016's Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, as well as older titles from the Eidos days like the original Tomb Raider, Thief and Deus Ex games, in addition to, um, Daikatana.

Square Enix is one of many companies trying to raise money for the COVID-19 coronavirus relief fund at the moment. Roblox says it will be donating up to $1m to these efforts, while Humble Bundle has raised $6.5m.
