Around 700 creators have signed up to become part of a massive Bundle for Ukraine on indie game storefront itch.io.
The bundle includes almost 1000 games, tabletop RPGs, books and other items from the collective worth around $6500 USD. For a minimum of $10 donation, players can get their hands on the entire bundle, which includes indie hits like Celeste, SUPERHOT, Baba is You, SkateBIRD and many more.
Proceeds raised will go to two charities supporting Ukraine in light of the country’s ongoing invasion by Russia. These charities include the International Medical Corps who provide medical assistance in the region. The other charity supported by the bundle is Voices of Children, who support young Ukrainians effected by the war.
As per the description on the bundle’s page: “Of these nearly 1,000 products, more than 600 have never been in a major bundle before. Several prominent developers and publishers signed up to itch.io specifically to be in this bundle. And there’s something for everyone – we have almost 600 digital video games, over 300 analog tabletop RPGs, and dozens of asset packs, books, zines, and comics, soundtracks/music, and a host of other products. Also unique to this bundle, we only allowed paid products.”
The bundle’s original goal was set at $100K USD, but it blew through that target in just two hours. At the time of writing, the new goal is $1 million USD, and it’s already nearly halfway there. If you want to pick up the Bundle for Ukraine yourself, you can do so over at itch.io’s website here.
