RuneScape developer Jagex has raised £225,000 ($304.8k) for mental health charities in the last 12 months.

The studio revealed that its Charitable Giving initiative had raised this sum for three charities: Mind, The Prince’s Trust, and YMCA Right Here. Its goal for this 12-month period was £150,000 ($203k).

Furthermore, the Cambridge-based company has been giving a Silver Award in the Mind's Workplace Wellbeing Index; last year it managed a Bronze.

Good cause

This is part of Mental Health Awareness week, for which the developer is selling an in-game baby yeti item for consumers to raise more money for these charities.

Jagex isn't the only publisher trying to do some good in this field; indie publisher Devolver Digital has been selling a SNES game to this end.
