Paradox Interactive is joining other companies in helping to fight against Coronavirus (COVID-19) by having launched their very own fundraiser.

Want to play games and help the relief efforts against the COVID-19 virus?
Until 7p.m. CEST of April 3rd the proceeds from a number of Paradox games on Steam will go to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the WHO!

Personally, I'm buying Tyranny and Age of Wonders: Planetfall, as they're the Paradox Interactive titles in this list that I don't own. May as well do my bit as I know the money's going towards a good cause, despite knowing that I'll likely not even play the games for a good while. That's hardly the point though. Are there any titles here that interest you? If so, which ones will you be picking up?
