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
- 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.
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.
Quoting: GuestI could cry. Such an amazing bundle. And i can't buy it.Check your email.
