#LydiaDonation - DLC
Based on its creators' own experience and memories, Lydia is the interactive tale of a girl who lives with alcoholic parents. She wishes for a happy childhood but can never have it.
Other people lived or will live the same situation, as shown by the quotes in the video. But you can help!
With the players contribution, we want to use the visibility of the game to make some real changes:
The sales of the DLC #LydiaDonation on Nintendo eShop will serve as funds to help a charity.

Donations reports regularly updated here
The game Lydia and the DLC #LydiaDonation will be released on Nintendo Switch on 17th of January. The price to purchase the DLC will be 1,00 USD/EUR. Nakana only receives part of the money generated by the sales (70% when no additional taxes apply). These "net revenues" will be redistributed.
Here we will regularly communicate about how many DLCs we sold and upload payment confirmation documents to prove the donations made to Fragile Childhood.
Even though Nakana will receive net revenues monthly, it is not impossible that we will wait a few months to gather more funds before redistributing them in order to reduce administration/bank fees. The frequency will depend on the amount.
In-game content received with the DLC
When you purchase the DLC, you offer to Lydia a coloring book of monsters that she can paint with happy vibrant colors - as a metaphor to making monsters less scary, both in-game and real life.
We encourage players to capture a screenshot of the drawings created by their generous donation and share it with the hashtag #LydiaDonation.
