Doom II co-creator John Romero has created a new level for the game to raise money for Ukraine’s war effort.
According to Romero, One Humanity is his first new Doom II level since the id Software FPS was originally released in 1994.
The level costs €5 and 100% of the proceeds will go to the Red Cross and the UN Central Emergency Response Fund to help support the people of Ukraine during Russia’s invasion.
“To support the people of Ukraine and the humanitarian efforts of the Red Cross and the UN Central Emergency Response Fund, I’m releasing a new DOOM II level for a donation of €5,” Romero tweeted. “100% of the proceeds go toward these agencies.”
After being asked by a follower if this meant all revenue, Romero clarified that all €5 would be going to charity.
“There were no costs associated with this,” he confirmed. “100% of every cent is going to the relief agencies. So, revenue = proceeds.”
Earlier this week, Ukraine’s Deputy Prime Minister called on Xbox and PlayStation to temporarily end support in both Russia and Belarus (which has been supporting Russia’s war effort).
In an open letter published on Twitter, Mykhailo Fedorov said the platform holders should “block all Russian and Belorussian accounts” and “temporarily stop the participation of Russian and Belorussian teams and gamers in all international esports events”.
