​'This War Of Mine' Being Added To Polish High School Reading List

Polish wartime survival game, This War Of Mine, is reportedly going to be added to Polish high school reading lists.

Given the game's mature themes and PEGI 18/ESRB 'M' classification, however, the content will only available for students aged 18 and upwards. As it was never developed to be an educational tool but will now be recommended as course materials for a number of subjects, including ethics, history, and philosophy, it's a significant accomplishment to have such a game added to the curriculum.

If that seems entirely too long to wait for Keanu Reeves, the actor is donating 15 minutes of his time to the highest bidder for a little "one-on-one time with Keanu" in order to raise funding for Idaho-based children's cancer charity, Camp Rainbow Gold. The auction doesn't close until 22 June, 2020, but bidding has been fast and furious already and the current leading bid is a mind-boggling $75,000 with two days still to go.
