The itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality raised an astounding eight MILLION dollars for the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund and Community Bail Fund. It is a feat, and a bundle, that invites hyperbole, and for good reason. As of its close last Tuesday, over 800 thousand people contributed – meaning people contributed on average $10, for almost $9000 worth of games and art and literature. This means 814,738 people who now have indie, often leftist games: certainly an incredible prospect!
The question now, of course, is how to go through all these games?!
Much like IFComp, it can often seem like being a kid in a candy shop, overwhelmed by the sheer variety available. I’m working through it, bit by bit. Over the next few weeks, I’ll try to regularly post initial impressions of the games I have tried! They’re probably going to be narrative more than action, and only the ones which can run on a Mac.
