As nights get darker and your heating bills soar, you might be thinking about those less fortunate than you this holiday season. If you want to give back to a particularly worthy cause, Yogscast’s Jingle Jam 2022 has everything a generous gamer needs to do some good this winter whilst also reaping the benefits of some cool new games.

If you’ve worked through the best PC games and need a bundle to play through over Christmas then you should tune into the Jungle Jam streams. From December 1 - 14, streamers will unite to raise awareness for this year’s edition of Jingle Jam

The annual charity event is one of the biggest in the gaming world and seeks to raise money for HDYES - Huntington’s Disease Youth Engagement Services.

For as little as $42 / £35 / AU$63, you’ll receive a Steam key to download, play, and keep over 85 games. That’s a lot of festive bang for your buck.

Santa’s little helpers 

Jingle Jam kicked off over a decade ago in 2011, when two members of popular YouTube gaming channel The Yogscast asked their subscribers to donate to charity rather than gifting them presents that Christmas. 

The response was overwhelmingly positive, earning their chosen charity over $100,000 / £81,516 / AU$146,666 – and ever since then, it’s become one of the most heartwarming Christmas traditions.

Your money could also go to one of the following equally important charities:

  • British Red Cross
  • Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM)
  • Dogs for Autism
  • Huntingdon’s Disease Association
  • Kidscape
  • Mermaids
  • Movember
  • Reset Mental Health
  • SpecialEffect
  • Special Olympics Great Britain
  • Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Appeal
  • Whale and Dolphin Conservation

Feel Good (Inc) 

Among the choice offerings is particularly topical Plague Inc: Evolved. A PC version of the popular mobile game that turned out to be eerily prophetic, you’ll be engineering a deadly disease with the goal of either wiping out humanity entirely, turning them into zombies or vampires, or enslaving them to worship a strange neurological parasitic worm. 

Hope you’ve been paying attention to public health news because you really have no excuse not to be a pathogenic genius at this point.

If you’re after something a bit lighter and sillier, or if you’re just a massive Stray fan, Ato might appeal to you. In this cute yet deadly platformer gem, you play as a blade-wielding kitty that is well-versed in the samurai arts. Pixellated graphics and sidescrolling galore, it’s equal measures quirky and exciting. If only our ginger tabby cat’d had some swords at his disposal.

Whatever your tastes, there may well be something for you in the mega sackful of Jingle Jam games.
