Available on itch.io till July 7th.
Now that it’s June and Pride Month once more, the Queer Games Bundle has returned to Itch.io for the third year running, bringing with it a new selection of over 450 games, artwork, and other home entertainments from queer developers all around the world.
From June 1st to July 7th, the Queer Games Bundle will be available once again in an ongoing effort to “collaboratively support queer indie, microindie, art, and speculative designers.”
Visual books, music, manifestos, essays, comics, sensual tales of orcs, tabletop role-playing games, kink, an RPG in the style of the Gameboy about a lovesick emo kid, platformers, a generative photography simulator, interactive fiction, turn-based methods, an existential desktop friend, and much more are all included.
Sony bungled its first-party plans for the future at the broadcast PlayStation Showcase.
Some of it is cute, some of it is funny, some of it deals with serious issues, and some of it, I should probably explain, is very not safe for work.
If that piques your curiosity, you can choose between two distinct versions of the Queer Games Bundle. There is a full-price version that includes all 450 “fantastic, wholehearted, enjoyable, and extreme video games and art work” for $60 USD (about 48), and a sliding scale package that includes whatever for $10-$20+, designed for individuals who cannot afford the more expensive version.
The proceeds from the sale of the Queer Games Bundle will be split evenly among the various creators of the included games. The 2015 bundle, according to the event’s organisers, raised over $215,000, which means each component received about $540 to support the group’s ongoing efforts.
