One of the heartening things that this year’s many and varied calamities has brought up has been a series of generous offers from creators in a wide variety of media. The latest one I’ve stumbled across is gaming related, which is why I mention it here.
Over on itch.io, they’re offering over 740 projects for a minimum donation of $5. As this is provided by a total of over 500 different indie creators, there should be something to suit most tastes somewhere in the mix.
Note that itch.io is a funny place, full of weird and wonderful creations by a myriad of talented indie creators. It began with digital projects, and that’s still what the bulk of them are. However, increasingly you also see tabletop RPG and the occasional tabletop game. There are a dozen or more of these in this bundle.
I’ve not got anything on itch.io myself (yet), so I’ve no personal investment. This post is really just a public service announcement. Thought that I should just put this out there. After all, it’s always better to find out before the timer runs down.
And yes, there is a timer. About 7 days and 17 hours let on this generous offer as I type.
