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.

Holy fuck, it's unbelievable. It's not done yet but I have to bought it before the end!

Itch.io won't be the same after this, this epic bundle is drawing a LOT of attention.

This gives me some hope after my disappointments with IGN's store.

I had multi-factor authentication enabled on my account, wiped the phone with the authenticator on it, and can't find my backup codes. So my itch.io account is now lost forever :(

I imagine if you email them, with some kind of proof, they would be quite reasonable about it. You must have some emails somewhere from itch you can dig up to prove ownership.

Worked for me with Steam. Give it a try.

For itch or Steam that would work. For Steam i can actually confirm it even. But still it depends. For example my Playstation Account is forever lost. I had a phone number with authentication SMS. No longer have that number. Also talked long with the Support. Even gave them proof with an old Email. Still nothing. Thanks i guess.

There is a game I like in there and it's worth 5$, so the bundle seems good. The problem is that devs don't get any money from this bundle, there are no Steam keys and itch.io doesn't have a client, so I can achieve the same result if I send 5$ directly to charity and just download the game from a pirate site.

I like my Steam library because it gives me sense of real ownership. The games are easy to install, remove, share with family, they will be there when I decide to give some of them another spin 10, 20 years from now. I just don't get the same from others.

It does: https://itch.io/app. It's open source, does game updates and is generally less broken than Steam.

itch has an Client/App.
