Well on it's way to raising 5 million dollars, the Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality over on itch.io has become a huge success and there's a lot that's been added to it.

Still keeping the minimum purchase at $5, it's absolutely the deal of the year and you're probably not likely to find another deal like it for a very long time. It's ridiculously good and for a honourable cause. There's now, at time of writing 1,509 items included which would usually cost over 8 thousand dollars individually.

Plenty of what's included is available for Linux too, it's incredible. Here's just a few of the latest interesting additions included after it began (some we mentioned elsewhere):

That's only a small slice of what's been newly included too, a few that jumped out at me. All newly included titles now and in future are automatically added to previous purchases. It's a lot to get through and thankfully they have now added a search bar to the redeem page so you can easily pick out what you want after you grab it.

Each game needs to be added individually from your bundle purchase, so it doesn't overwhelm your library. To help with that, itch do have an open source client. I regularly use it, handy for managing itch games and keeping them nicely up to date.

Be sure to share your personal highlights in the comments and the creators would all probably appreciate a review somewhere if you enjoyed their game. It's crazy to try and go over it all.

See the full bundle here.

I got this some days ago. I thought I would only use some of the tilesets that are included (since I am really bad at creating my own) and nothing else really. Then I found out that there are some games that I might like after all..like MewnBase for example.

I already mentioned Super Win the Game and On Rusty Trails in the comments on the previous article. Here's a few more that I don't think were mentioned yet:

  • Silicon Zeroes

  • Milkmaid of the Milky Way

  • Octodad: Dadliest Catch

  • Micron

Yep, thank goodness for the search function! It was bad enough flipping through 25 pages on the weekend, let alone 50 now!

Depth of Extinction and 2064: Read Only Memories look like interesting additions to me.

I'd also like to try Long Gone Days. Apparently it's not getting a Linux release until later. It started up fine under Wine though.

I've been spoiled by having Proton integrated into Steam, which is the launcher I usually use. But now I have a bunch of Windows games on Itch, I'm running the Windows Itch launcher via Lutris to get the equivalent functionality without doing any hard work. I'd like to be able to add selected Windows Itch games to Steam so my son can access them from family mode without having access to my whole Itch library. Hopefully this is doable, but maybe I have too many layers of indirection. Suggestions welcome.

I bought this yesterday and already had to remove several items from my Steam wishlist ... yay! I'm glad they added a search feature. I'm going to suggest that they add a ... what would you call it? A page select feature? I'm of a sort that will browse through all umpteen gazillion games one at a time --- because there are some real gems in here --- but it's gonna take hours, over days, and to be able to choose page 23 or 30 or what have you and jump right to where I might have left off would be a real boon.

I've not done it with Itch games yet, but it's pretty straightforward to add games to Steam. I've got Minecraft and the GOG version of Witcher 3 added to Steam, and you can pick the Proton version in the usual way if it's a Windows game that you've added. I've not tried the family mode with them yet, though, since my little one just knows which games he's allowed to play from my account and when.

Has some of these game already been reviewed on Gaming on Linux? That would be cool to centralize links from all these reviews.

FYI, family mode shows all non-steam games, which is fine. Yes, I guess all I need to do is figure out where Lutris put the Itch wineprefix, then add individual paths under there as non-Steam games and enable Proton for each one. So I'd just launch the Windows Itch when I want to install a game, then add it to Steam for day-to-day use. Sounds like a plan.

Thanks.

If you want to claim them all, this should save you come time

Also, if you find browsing your new 1500+ library cumbersome in the Itch client, give Gamehub a go as it will give you a nice Steam library like list

I'd say just bookmark the page you're on, but whenever they add more stuff you might just have to start over regardless. Some of the games they've added so far didn't all end up at the end of the list. I think filtering by tags/type or maybe sorting by date would be helpful.

I had avoided Celeste for years, having been scarred by Super Meat Boy, but it's a really positive surprise (so far). I don't know if it's just the 'ambiance' or if it is more forgiving but so far setbacks don't feel galling in the way they did in SMB.

Deeper in, further from the headliners, I have had some good fun with DROPSHIP (works well in Wine), an update of the Lunar Lander idea but with 'relative' gravity (relative to your ship). Imagine the video game equivalent of spinning around in an office chair until you're sick :)
