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.

CyrilIt's a monstrous bundle, but is there any way to filter only Linux games on that list?
I didn't see a way to do it either, so I wrote a quick scraper. This is the list of Linux games:

You are monstrous too! Thanks!

Also there are other stuff there too, like pen and paper roleplaying games. One of them, Blades in the Dark pdf alone is a steal in this bundle.

Several games aren't working for me, throwing up what seems to be the same error, that I don't have libcrypto so.1.0.0, and some sort of warning about not being able to refresh upload because I haven't bought the game.

This applies so far to Cook Serve Delicious 2, Village Monsters, and Mabel & The Wood.
Great bundle!

I'd like to add all the games to my library without opening the download page for each one, does anyone have a script to do so?

Is there a way to add a specific game to my library without the need to dig into pages of shovelware?

That is exactly how the bundle is designed. You can pick which one to add to your library as you see fit.

In order to add a game I must find it first somewhere on 25 pages of listed games without an ability to sort them or to search by title name or even to jump onto a specific page.

To search the list, you can log in to Itch.io in a proper browser and open your personal download page there, and then you can search with the usual ctrl+f. A page at a time, sadly, but better than nothing.

I'm sure Itch.io came up with this new system with some urgency to facilitate such a huge bundle at a short notice, and they must be fully aware that the implementation is rudimentary. I'm sure their next gigantic charity bundle will have a smoother execution.

Yes, I think this system must be fairly new. I bought one such charity mega-bundle from Itch.io in the past, and it just added everything to my library, making it forever difficult to browse. This is a huge improvement.

A couple of personal favorites from DeathByDenim's list that I don't think anyone else mentioned:

Okay, I was planning to pass on this monstrosity but because of you, horribly helpful people, I'm in. Special thanks to DeathByDenim. Also, the game Oh Jezz, Oh No, My Rabbits Are Gone!!! looks super cute.
