The bundle raised over $8m (currently $8,175,480.81).

Games By Platform:
986 Windows games; 578 MacOS games; 426 Linux games (not counting games that can be run through Wine);

Publishers in the bundle include Devolver Digital, Serenity Forge, Adult Swim and tinyBuild. Some of the games have been on Epic Games, Game Pass, Humble Choice and/or the Humble Trove. Itch.io hosts (mostly indie) games and electronic items and has been in existence since 2013.

The Itch App for easy downloads
You buy the bundle, add the games to your Library on the itch.io website and then use the itch app to download them when you want, the app keeps the DRM-free games updated (or you can download them separately).:

"We live in a time of racial injustice, inequality, and police brutality against black people. I hope that everyone takes a stand in any way that they can. We’ve partnered with creators from all across our platform to support organizations that are working directly with those affected.

We reached out to our community and an unprecedented number of creators donated 1000+ projects to be part of what we believe is the largest bundle ever. Over $3,400 of paid works are available Pay-what-you-want with a minimum donation amount of $5.

To download the games/items you will need to visit the bundle web page in a browser and click 'download' on the games for them to be available in the app. In the future they will streamline this.

The charge is in dollars, so for least cost, use a fee-free card. If you use Paypal, their charge will take the cost to around £4.13.

Unlikely that cold voters bothered to do this research or agonised whether their £4 would be used appropriately. Many deals get voted hot for companies with objectionable funding/practices and no-one bats an eyelid. If voting purely on the deal then this should be scorching.
744 items including some cracking and someone is still sad enough to vote this cold
Edited by: "copperspock" 6th Jun
Unsure why ~£4 for over 700 games, asset packs and other assorted content is being voted cold?
That is a lot of games (not too play) for very little money which are going towards a good cause. Surely, it's hot! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Pretty awesome bundle, and for a good cause. I saw “The Stillness of the Wind” and “The King’s Bird” were alsoboth in this month’s Humble Choice bundle.
I will have missed some highlights, feel free to suggest games you have noticed.
I checked out with PayPal and it ended up being £4.13. Thank you! Heat added!
More games are being added (Nuclear Throne), and they've made $109,199 overnight (when most were asleep).
There's a ton of value here and it benefits a good cause! Heat added!
Is this books, games, art, food? I have absolutely no idea from the description!

Assorted tat, mostly - unless there's anything you're after in the headline. It's one of those where if the charity is right for you - make a donation.

A very random grab bag here but definitely worth a fiver.

Highlights include Oxenfree, Night in the Woods, A Short Hike, Super Hexagon, Minit, Cook Serve Delicious 2, Loot Rascals, Bleed 2, Quadrilateral Cowboy, Heavy Bullets, Astrologaster, Glittermitten Grove (which is secretly Frog Fractions 2) and Paranautical Activity. And that's just the ones I already know.
They may be be voting cold because of no steam keys.
not an opinion i share but a common excuse on bundles, or yeah they could just be tools.
disappointing but predictable either way

Are any of these games any good?
I have to admit that I skipped over this at first due to being on itch rather than Steam, but there are a good few gems in there, plus it's for charity - so, bought.

Yes, plenty. This is a more curated selection, but there are other very worthy games as well: itch.io/c/8…ons
This is an insanely good deal. How can this possily be cold!?
How does it work with Itch? Do you just download games directly from them, or are they a launcher, or...?

Sorry, I see it says now that downloads are from them. Wonder if you can pay now and download at your leisure?

What's the situation if they add more games to bundle. Say I buy it now but more games are added later will I get access to the added ones or only what was added at time of purchase.

It has been confirmed that you will receive the games added later.

I am sure there are other games to be added that I have missed.

Itch.io have confirmed that they will be adding all the new games and projects for everyone -

twitter.com/moo…=20

Will bring it up to 900 or so items in the bundle.
This is an insane bundle, I am genuinely surprised and disappointed how it hasn't yet made it to the highlights page. I mean yes its itch and not steam - but still 700+ games for less then £4 how on earth can anyone vote this cold ! If I could vote 700 times, I'd vote it hot each time. Thanks for posting mate.
Seems like all indie games, which is not necessarily bad and it's for a good cause (100% proceeds seem to be going to 2 charitable entities). You'd definitely get your money's worth in entertainment. Heat from me.
So the games aren't automatically added to my library? I have to download each individual game before it becomes a part of it? This is going to be a bit tedious.

Please don't overuse this - the functionality isn't there by default because it's a massive load on their servers. That's why the reddit post was edited to remove details.
There are some absolutely fantastic games in this bundle! I personally downloaded:

- Cook Serve Delicious 2
- Minit
- Night in the Woods
- Bleed/Bleed 2
- Switch 'N' Shoot
- Oxenfree
- Overland
- Super Hexagon
- Paranautical Activity...

Any many many more. Cracking deal op!
$2,000,000+ raised so far.

Leaf from itch.io has decided to exclude free games from being added to the bundle in future. See his thread here:
twitter.com/moo…064
He hasn't added more games to it yet though.
Games media coverage of the bundle:
kotaku.com/itc…605 highlights Wide Ocean Big Jacket
pcgamer.com/uk/…ty/ "perhaps the best deal on indie games I have ever seen", highlighting Death and Taxes, Dorfromantik and Beacon (and for tabletop RPG people, Mausritter, Lancer, Blades in the Dark, and Troika).
rockpapershotgun.com/202…le/ highlights Eat Girl and Desktop Goose
polygon.com/202…ver says "The Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality at itch.io is the best video game bundle we’ve ever seen." highlights include: Art Sqool, Gunhouse, and Fortune-499

Probably asking for too much considering, but I wish there was a way to filter the bundle contents in the itch.io client. You all keep suggesting interesting games but it’s difficult to find and download them all

This bundle is forcing itch.io to rethink their interface, they've never had so many items in a bundle (or such a popular bundle) before.
Many new games added today (Celeste, GNOG, 2064: Read Only Memories, Beacon, Nuclear Throne and Underhero), bringing the total number to 1000 (from 740+). More games are due to be added beyond that.
