ART OF FINAL FANTASY AIDS UNICEF TYPHOON HAIYAN RELIEF EFFORTS

Square Enix Inc. is proud to announce the donation of $40,000 to UNICEF’s Typhoon Haiyan Relief.

The proceeds came from a week-long (March 15-26) online auction of limited edition and one-of-a-kind artwork from the popular FINAL FANTASY® X / X-2 HD Remaster title. The art pieces were also on display at Gallery Nucleus of Alhambra, California. The auction included more than 50 pieces of limited edition concept art, illustrations and sketches from FINAL FANTASY X and FINAL FANTASY X-2. The online art gallery and auction can be viewed here: http://sqex.to/ffxauction.

“In FINAL FANTASY X, we portrayed a disaster in the village of Kilika,” said Yusuke Naora, art director of the original FINAL FANTASY X. “While we normally write stories that are about saving the world, I wondered if there was anything we could do through our games to share the pain felt by those affected. I hope that I was able to achieve that through theFINAL FANTASY X/X-2 HD Remaster Online Art Auction.”

In November 2013, Typhoon Haiyan caused a tremendous amount of damage in the Philippines that resulted in over 14 million people, including nearly six million children, being affected. With the help of the Philippine government and partner humanitarian organizations, UNICEF has been able to provide clean water, deliver emergency kits, open child-friendly spaces and temporary schools for thousands of students, and reunite lost children with their families.

The more I have reviewed games the more I have found that I crave light, or medium light games on my shelf. This is not to say I prefer them to heavier games necessarily, but I find I spend a lot of time, and effort into making sure that I have rules correct, and learning how to play that sometimes I just want to sit down with my wife and play something quick and easy. Something along the weight of Ticket to Ride, or Splendor.
