Itch.io’s clever and flexible bundling system, reportedly more straightforward to use than many other game marketplace sites, shows its value again.
More than 800 indie game devs have cooperated and coordinated to help raise money for much needed Palestinian Aid. The result? More than 1,000 games and accessories in a bundle that will cost $5.
You can pay more, and although the bundle is just out, someone’s already paid $1,020 for it, and that’s a Dollar a game.
There are tabletop games in the bundle as well as computer games, soundtracks and digital assets. Sky Bear Games have contributed the 5e module Dragons of Tirenia: Double Cross, Brendan Hesse Super Mutant Slayers and J.N. Butler Monster Manifest which converts 300+ creatures from the SRD5 to Quest RPG.
The Indie bundle for Palestinian Aid lists 272 “physical games”, which is the category RPGs, board games and card game are listed in.
If you’re tempted, you’ll need to be quick, as the deal only lasts for a week. After that, you’ll have to buy the games directly from these independent studios, and that’s no terrible thing either.
The bundle goes to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, which supports over a million Palestinians. You can read more about the Gaza emergency on the UNRWA’s site.
The founder of Toadhouse Games studio, Alanna Linayre, began all the excellent work with a tweet.
The goal is to raise half a million before the time runs out, and they’re nearly 30% of the way there.
