Game store itch.io has setup a big mixed bundle of all sorts to support 'Racial Justice and Equality' and there's a lot of interesting stuff in it.

This might be the biggest bundle ever, with over 700 items included and a minimum donation amount of only $5. It's a ridiculously good deal and for a charitable cause, with all proceeds being split 50/50 between NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund and Community Bail Fund.

As the bundle page states:

We live in a time of racial injustice, inequality, and police brutality against black people. We hope that everyone takes a stand in any way that they can. We’ve partnered with creators from all across our platform to support organizations that are working directly with those affected.

The bundle quickly smashed through $200K and it's now set a new goal at $500K, given the support it has received I would be surprised if it didn't smash that too. Even more projects are going to be added to the bundle, as the itch founder mentioned on Twitter to expect another 185 projects to be added.

I've had a little look over and it's full of great things. There's quite a few wonderful Linux games included like:

  • A Short Hike
  • Airships: Conquer the Skies
  • Cook, Serve, Delicious! 2!!
  • Democratic Socialism Simulator
  • Gladiabots
  • Haque
  • MidBoss
  • Minit
  • Overland
  • Shipwreck
  • Super Hexagon
  • Tonight We Riot
  • Verdant Skies
  • + A great many more

There's also game assets from Kenney, plenty of smaller experimental games, the DragonRuby Game Toolkit from game porter and SDL2 software developer Ryan "Icculus" Gordon and game dev Amir Rajan and the list of included bits goes on for hundreds more. It's an incredible deal.

If you do buy it, the bundle will not instantly add everything to your itch library. Instead, you're given a page where you can select from it so that it doesn't overload you.

See the full charity bundle here where it will be open for another 10 days.

Also remember that itch has an open source client that comes in handy.

Quoting: randyl
Quoting: tuubiNice one. Bought.

I like that it doesn't all just appear in my library, but I get to pick and choose. I'm not likely to ever play or use much of the content in the bundle.
If they don't show up in the library how do you know which titles you can pick out of the bundle?
You get access to a download page where you can pick titles to add to your library. It's a bit awkward, but it does the job. And you can pick everything or nothing, it's up to you.

Didn't buy cause it's political.

Also mostly garbage games and no steam, and I can't be bothered with multiple libraries. 🤷‍♂️

Hello everybody!
Once the bundle bought, will the claimed games remain available for download after the 10 days ends this offer?
A such good offer seems nearly unrealistic so I search for the trap

Yes, they are yours to keep and add to your itch account.

Excellent. Many of those games I had on wish list but the deal and cause were too good to be passed on.

Holy Cow! Not only does this bring home just how epic and gigantic this deal is... it also highlights how many superb Linux games there are on Itch! 500+??? Holy shit.

And don't get me wrong - there are some, frankly, throw-away experiments too. But to call out quite a few simply superb options -

Liam has already mentioned:
A Short Hike
Airships: Conquer the Skies
Cook, Serve, Delicious! 2!!
Democratic Socialism Simulator
Gladiabots
Haque
MidBoss
Minit
Overland
Shipwreck
Super Hexagon
Tonight We Riot
Verdant Skies

But, not to take anything away from DeathByDenim's list, I would like to add the following, for various, multiple and entirely personal reasons!

Oxenfree (it's AWESOME! BUY IT NOW! NO REGETS!)
Night in the Woods (ALSO AWESOME!)
Overland (I don't care that Liam's already called it out, it's AWESOME!)
Oneshot (weirdly Windows-only on Itch, but Linux supported on Steam? Worth looking into!)
Midboss (again, Liam calls it out, but I RAVE about it here. Get it!)
Wakimarina. I really hope this plays okay on Lutris/Wine/Proton, because it's BEAUTIFUL.
The Fall of Lazarus. Another Wine title - looks wonderful.
Pixel Session Vol 1... the most un-epileptic game ever built. Seriously though, epileptic people, be warned!
Dreaming Sarah. I had a lot of fun with this. Nothing to do with people I know named Sarah. Honest guv.
The Subject. Horror, FPS and puzzle elements. Tense and interesting. Definitely worth a look.
Bleed / Bleed2. Epic, lovely and fun.
Quadrilateral Cowboy - I know nothing about it... but I desperately want to play it.
Heavy Bullets - a Twitch favourite. Like Void Bastards, but... native.
The King's Bird. Also an option on Humble Choice.. goddamit! If only I'd known! :)
Visual Out - a game I've had on my wishlist for... years, but never quite got around to pulling the trigger on. Yay!
Hyperspace Dogfights - loads of arcady-fun!
Star Drop - another one I hope works in Wine/Proton, because, holy cow... intriguing/beautiful!
Satellite Repairman - pretty intriguing small-world action/strategy. Looking forward to giving it a go!
Seasons Beatings (can't argue with "3D Hotline Miami"...)
Croissants. First person, robotic, pastry assembly. Tell me you're not intrigued...
The Trolley - fascinating narrative adventure.
Autumn - Lose yourself. It's so pretty!
Inner - Simply terrifying.
Not the Robots - So smooth, so simple. Lovely.
Locomancer - when virtual reality goes wrong...
Equaboreal - not sure what to make of this, but it's native.

But honestly, when someone throws you 500+ games for $5, just so you can indirectly acknowlege that racial inequality is bad... pay your money, take your time, and find your own gems. Then report back and tell us about them! I can't wait to hear your stories about gems you never knew existed!
Wow, this is an incredible bundle for such a low price! Most of these games I have never heard of. Of the ones I had played before, Super Hexagon is probably my favorite.
