Itch.io, an open marketplace for independent digital creators, just launched the Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality. Obtaining this large bundle of games only costs you $5 USD. You will receive 740+ games in return! By buying this charity bundle of interesting games, you can play a lot of Indie games for cheap, while you also take a stand against racial injustice, inequality, and police brutality against black people.
Itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality
All games from the Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality can be directly downloaded from Itch.io. You do not need an external program like Steam to play the games on your PC. More than 740 projects are part of this project. By buying this package, you obtain games like Oxenfree (Night School Studio) and Night In The Woods (Finji). A full list of all the games can be found on the Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality page of Itch.io. You can get the games with a minimum donation of $5.
For the action, the platform reached out to their community. An unprecedented number of creators donated over 740 projects. Over $3,400 of paid works are available Pay-what-you-want with a minimum donation amount of $5. All proceeds will be donated to the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund and Community Bail Fund split 50/50. At the moment of writing this article, already $2,356,716.68 had been raised, which is 47% of a set goal of $5,000,000.00. There are 205,198 contributors.

At the moment, the bundle is already 740+ titles. The chances are big it will get bigger over time. Anyone who has already purchased the bundle will get access to newly added projects too. For example, developers can still register their game for the bundle. If you’re a developer who is interested in adding their project to the bundle you could reply to the top-level post in this thread on Itch.io.
