A petition asking BioWare to change Mass Effect 3's controversial ending has raised over $30,000 for gaming charity Child's Play in just 24 hours.

The campaign, Retake Mass Effect 3, has more than 25,000 likes on Facebook and 3,000 Twitter followers, while a poll on BioWare's forums has been backed by 40,000 votes, Edge reports.

Supporters of the campaign can donate via a ChipIn page, with all proceeds going to Child's Play, a gaming charity which raised $3.5 million last year and spent the cash on gaming equipment for sick children in hospitals.

The petition's organisers said: "We would like to dispel the perception that we are angry or entitled. We simply wish to express our hope that there could be a different direction for a series we have all grown to love."

Mass Effect 3 director Casey Hudson was unapologetic about the conclusion to the trilogy in a recent interview.
