11 developers, including Creative Assembly, Rovio, Team 17 and Sumo Digital, participated in a six-day-long charity game jam recently, making puzzle, adventure, local multiplayer and other types of games. The resulting, varied titles have now been bundled into the Help: The Game collection, a 12-game-strong assortment made in conjunction with War Child, a charity that helps children affected by war.

You can buy Help: The Game on Steam, and if you do, all the profit will go to the charity. The games include Anthelion, a vibrant arcade game from Rovio; Team 17 puzzler 10 Minute Tower; Torn Banner's Nevermine - "a ball rolling game where you guide a Mine Kafon onto unexploded bombs" - and Modern Dream's Savana, a point-and-click adventure based on "real life experience of growing up in Mozambique".

The bundle of 12 games will set you back only £9.99. Here's a video detailing how the bundle came about:

Tom loves exploring in games, whether it’s going the wrong way in a platformer or burgling an apartment in Deus Ex. His favourite game worlds—Stalker, Dark Souls, Thief—have an atmosphere you could wallop with a blackjack. He enjoys horror, adventure, puzzle games and RPGs, and played the Japanese version of Final Fantasy VIII with a translated script he printed off from the internet. Tom has been writing about free games for PC Gamer since 2012. If he were packing for a desert island, he’d take his giant Columbo boxset and a laptop stuffed with PuzzleScript games.
