Want to support small teams and queer creators? Well here's a good chance for you with the itch.io Queer Games Bundle 2021 and there's quite a lot inside. It's a big cooperation between tons of different creators, with the aim to generate revenue for smaller teams and solo developers.
If we had 1/3rd of the budget of an AAA game, we could give every solo developer a livable wage for a year and every single team a massive funding boost. Imagine what the developers and artists in this bundle could create a year from now if they weren’t worried about starving or how to pay their rent this month.
Purchasing the Queer Games Bundle is a direct action that you can take right now to support queer people in a life changing way and in exchange you get over 200 amazing, heartfelt, fun, and radical games.
It has over 200 games, software, zines and all sorts in between. Plenty of which have support for Linux too, and some that don't can be played right in your browser. It costs $60, so it's around the price of one single AAA game. However, for those on a budget there's also the Queer Games Bundle 2021 (Pay What You Can Edition). The proceeds will be split evenly across all of the artists involved in the bundle which is wonderful to see.
Really great to see itch.io thrive as a place to highlight good causes, indie gems and much much more.
