The Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality at itch.io is the best video game bundle we’ve ever seen. That isn’t hyperbole. For a minimum donation of $5, you get more than “740 works,” including some of our favorite games. But what makes the bundle truly special is the purpose: Proceeds will be split 50/50 between the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund and Community Bail Fund.

You can donate however much you’d like (naturally, we encourage more than $5 if you have the means) to get games like Oxenfree, Overland, Art Sqool, Wide Ocean Big Jacket, Quadrilateral Cowboy, Gunhouse, and Fortune-499.

These aren’t just good games; they’re exceptional.

The bundle also includes A Short Hike, one of our top 10 games of 2019, and A Mortician’s Tale, one of my favorite games of 2017, which taught me about eco-friendly mortuary services. That one game alone is worth the donation!

Seriously, do not miss this chance to play hundreds of games from some of the most talented independent creators while supporting a vital cause. And once you’ve grabbed the bundle, read our guide on how to support Black Lives Matter and the protests against police brutality.
