Written 2 months ago by IanDorfman

In light of the recent United States-centered and internationally felt push for racial equality, game storefront Small itch.io iconitch.io is offering a $5 bundle of over 1,000 independently developed games. All of the proceeds from the bundle will go to the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund and the Community Bail Fund.

Some of the most notable titles in the bundle include the following:

Small Oxenfree iconOxenfree
Small Celeste iconCeleste
Small 2064: Read Only Memories icon2064: Read Only Memories
Small Octodad iconOctodad: Dadliest Catch

Though the bundle does not include keys for storefronts like Small Steam iconSteam or the Small Epic Games Store iconEpic Games Store, itch.io defines itself as an alternative to those storefronts in how it is operated in a way that benefits both developers and consumers alike.

On top of being open source, itch.io has also offered open revenue sharing since October of 2013. This allows developers to set how much money they receive and how much money itch.io as a storefront receives. It also does not require people to sign up for an account in order to support games and creators while receiving the content they like from them.

The bundle is available for purchase on itch.io/b/520 and runs until June 16th, 2020.
