It’s not all doom and gloom this side of post-Valentine’s Day. Well, maybe it is, just a smidge of Doom as gaming rock legend Mick Gordon made waves online after quite the heartwarmingly badass announcement on Twitter.
The Doom and Wolfenstein reboot musical mastermind posted earlier that his fee from scoring the upcoming horror shooter Atomic Heart will go straight to the Australian Red Cross Ukraine Crisis Appeal, as, in his words, a means to help those affected by the country’s ongoing conflict.
My musical contribution to #AtomicHeart will also support a greater cause. I've donated my fee to @RedCrossAU’s Ukraine Crisis Appeal to stand in solidarity with the people of Ukraine.— Mick Gordon (@Mick_Gordon) February 14, 2023
If you're able to, please consider donating.

He mentions Mundfish Studio, highlighting his experience with them and stating his gratitude and thrill to be working on a project like Atomic Heart–which drew a few similarities to the games that are right up his alley. In turn, he is also stated that he is proud to donate his earnings in support of the people of Ukraine as they undergo the conflict they are facing.
“I believe it is important to support pro-peace organizations, stand up for what is right and to help those in need, especially during times of crisis.”
Gordon was recently in a dispute of his own with Bethesda Studios over his previous work on Doom Eternal. This conflict eventually led him to quit work on the game, with Bethesda denying his allegations.

Either way, this was quite a nice gesture from the rock legend. One wouldn’t think “kindness and compassion” when it comes to the Doom franchise, but I suppose, right at this moment, the only thing they thank is you, Mick.
