Although I’ve been making an effort to keep track of the fundraising mega-bundles that are appearing on Itch.io with increasing frequency as terrible stuff keeps happening in the world, I have to say that the main page doesn’t always make them easy to find. There are currently three different bundles live right now.
This bundle was open only to queer creators, and benefits them directly. It contains 588 items, which include a mix of video games, physical games, assets, and written works, many of which feature LGBTQIA+ representation. A minimum donation of $10 is required to receive the bundle.
This bundle will have a bit more than 24 hours remaining at the time of this post, so if you’re interested in this one, don’t wait!
This is a charity bundle, with 50% of the proceeds being donated to The National Organization for Women and 50% to The Center for Reproductive Rights. This is a somewhat smaller bundle – only 169 items, but includes a handful of higher value titles not present in either of the other currently available bundles. These titles include Lost in Vivo, Aground, and Sylvio. A minimum donation of $10 is required to receive the bundle.
This bundle has about 10 days remaining from the time of this post.
This bundle will be donating 100% of the proceeds to The National Network of Abortion Funds Collective Power Fund, and is the largest of the three bundles currently available, with over 750 items included, and more still being added through July 6. Again, you’ll see a variety of item types that are available on the Itch.io platform, and this bundle does include some items that are already available for free. A minimum donation of $10 is required to receive the bundle.
This bundle has about 8 days remaining from the time of this post.
