As for the games, there's a few notable indie efforts within. Between Superhot, TowerFall Ascension, Celeste, Kingdom Two Crowns, Baba is You, Wandersong, Backbone, Crosscode, and Jotun: Valhalla Edition, you'll likely find something to enjoy here.

We've seen a wide sweeping response across the games industry this last week. Statements of support came from 11 bit Studios, CD Projekt Red, Gameloft, GSC Game World, and Crytivo, while Wargaming recently sacked World of Tanks' creative director for supporting this invasion.

As for esports, the ESL recently banned teams with "apparent ties" to the Russian Government. If you're looking to assist humanitarian efforts in other ways, you can directly donate to The Red Cross too and various charity organizations. We'll keep you informed with further news as it happens.
