Hey, you! Is your video game backlog not large enough? Fix that instantly with the Bundle For Racial Justice And Equality on Itch.io. Hundreds of indie game developers have joined forces to offer their works in a discounted bundle for this week only. How many games are we talking? Not 100….not 200…there are over 740 games in this sucker!
Now how much would you pay? $50? $40? Tell you what, because we like you, we’re gonna let these games go for as little as an unheard-of $5! But you can pay more…and you should if you can; all proceeds will be split 50/50 between the NAACP Legal Defense And Education Fund and the Community Bail Fund.
How great are these games? ….We don’t know. That’s where the pitch kind of deflates, but only because no one on Earth has played every single one of these. There are a handful with name recognition and critical praise, like Night In The Woods, A Short Hike, Oxenfree, Minit, Super Hexagon, Overland, and others, but there are also a lot of super-obscure, ultra-indie games with weird titles. Some of our favorites we’ve read:
- Dr. Langeskov, The Tiger, And The Terribly Cursed Emerald: A Whirlwind Heist
- Don’t Take It Personally, I Just Don’t Like You: The Camping Trip
- 99Â¢ Chamber of Death
- Borb the Birb
- EXTREME MEATPUNKS FOREVER
- Dominique Pamplemousse and Dominique Pamplemousse in “Combinatorial Explosion!”
- Bakto’s Terrifying Cuisine
- Dogs Throwing Swords II: Three Barks To The Wind
- I Have Low Stats But My Class Is “Leader”, So I Recruited Everyone I Know To Fight The Dark Lord
The Bundle For Racial Justice And Equality will be available until June 15. If you want to add over 700 games to your pile AND fight racial injustice simultaneously, here’s an awesome way to do both. And if over 740 games somehow aren’t enough, Papers Please creator Lucas Pope is also selling his game on Steam and Humble for just $3 and donating every sale.
"Papers, Please" is $3 for the next 24 hours on Steam and Humble. I'll double all sale proceeds up to $50k and donate everything to the @NAACP, @ACLU, & @eji_org. If you already have the game, don't want it, prefer another charity, etc, please donate on your own #BlackLivesMatter
