I try to keep my game and community a safe-space and politics free. Sometimes however, evil finds you no matter what.
Putin has ordered his forces to commence a war of aggression and full-scale invasion of Ukraine. This hits close to home for the Skald community:
Skald composer and vital community member Surt_R is Ukrainian and lives in a Ukrainian city currently under attack by Russian forces. I spoke to him this morning. Surt_R is a positive guy but needless to say the situation is chaotic and it’s hard to know how the next days will play out.
Surt_R has been with me since the start. He’s an amazing creative and a fantastic guy so I’m asking you all, as the head of our community: come together and support Surt_R.
Thankfully, supporting him is easy. Surt_R has a large Steam cataloge of his wonderfully quirky games and amazing music!
Disclaimer: Surt_R also made the Skald Demo soundtrack which is available for sale on Steam. Though it is on sale at the Skald site, Surt_R receives 100% of the revenue for that product.
Again: I’m NOT receiving any money for this soundtrack – it ALL GOES TO SURT_R!
I’ll try to stay in touch with him and if there is anything the Skald community can do for him, we’ll do it!
I’m going to keep this short and refer you to this excellent article.
Stand with Ukraine. Stand against tyrants.
