In celebration of World Environment Day 2019, Subnautica went on sale as part of a Valve special event between June 5th and 8th. Unknown Worlds pledged to donate 15% of our profits from sales of the original Subnautica to the non-profit, the Ocean Cleanup.
Thanks to the efforts of the incredible and dedicated Subnautica community, we are pleased to announce that you were collectively able to raise $20,694.45 to donate to the Ocean Cleanups’ efforts to rid the world’s oceans of plastic.
We cannot express our gratitude enough for all of your help in making this donation possible. Just as you have all worked at eliminating the bacterium that threatened Planet 4546B, we are now able to make a contribution to doing the same with our home planet.
Keep on being awesome, Subnauts!
