MechWarrior Online devs raise over $100,000 for cancer research
MechWarrior Online-developer Piranha Games' customized Jenner mech has raised over $100,000 for the Canadian Cancer Society, GameInformer reports.

Five-year-old Sarah Parries played MechWarrior Online extensively with her father until she recently lost her battle with cancer. In honor of her memory, Pirahna Games designed Sarah's Jenner, a unique Chassis Champion model for Sarah's favored mech type with a 10 percent experience boost.

Creative Director of Pirahna Games Bryan Ekman says the team initially thought "$10,000 would be a number we could all be proud of ... the response from the MechWarrior community and from the games industry at large has been overwhelming."

Sarah's Jenner is $10 and available for purchase until August 20. One hundred percent of the proceeds will be donated to the Canadian Cancer Society.
