Untitled Goose Game made waves and influenced a legion of memes with its saucy, honking protagonist. The video game’s designers, House Home, are based in Australia, and they have vowed to donate a portion of the game’s income towards indigenous populations of the nation.
Players who beat Untitled Goose Game and viewed the credits might have seen the following line: “This game was made on the lands of the Wurundjeri individuals of the Kulin Nation. We pay our aspects to their Elders, past and present. Sovereignty was never ever delivered.”
Now, the designers are taking part in the Pay the Rent motion. On Twitter, the studio composed: “Our videogames are made on stolen Wurundjeri land. We at House Home will be paying at least 1%of our income to native groups, in eternity, as part of the Pay the Rent motion. We ‘d encourage others to do the exact same.”
As a start, we’re providing to the Wurundjeri Tribe Council, Warriors of Aboriginal Resistance, and @SeedMob.
If you’re an inhabitant living and working on Aboriginal land, like we are, please consider paying the lease: https://t.co/qSh7l3CXlA

The first groups Home will be contributing to are the Wurundjeri Tribe Council, Warriors of Aboriginal Resistance, and Seed, an indigenous youth network.
Untitled Goose Game was published by Panic, who just recently revealed that the video game has sold more than a million copies.
