The Itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality was widely considered to be the best value bundle in video game history, not just because it had so many games included, but because of the quality of some of the games included. Indie darlings Night in The Woods, Overland, Minit, Oxenfree, Celeste, Super Hexagon, A Short Hike and 2064: Read Only Memories were all donated by their developers.

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

The money raised will now be split 50/50 between the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund and Community Bail Fund.
