Note: Please Read Before Submitting Your Game. We’re working with a lot of creators and we need your help to stay organized. If you’re not able to read the rules then we may not be able to include you. (This includes things like submitting too many games or posting you reply in the wrong spot)
Note about free games: We won’t be adding free games anymore to the purchasable part of the bundle, but we will still be collecting them to showcase in a special collection of supporters. More information here: https://twitter.com/moonscript/status/1269715947599704064
We live in a time of racial injustice, inequality, and police brutality against black people. I hope that everyone takes a stand in any way that they can. We’re inviting creators all across our platform to join us in supporting organizations that are working directly with those affected.
We’re hosting a bundle where anyone can join with all proceeds split between:
The bundle will be Pay-what-you-want with a minimum price of $5. All creators on itch.io are encouraged to participate. We’ll be waiving itch.io’s cut to ensure we contribute the most we can. The bundle will start Friday, June 5th and run through June 15th.
In order to join the bundle just reply to this thread with the URLs to the projects you’d like to submit. Please reply using the account that owns the project’s page otherwise we won’t be able to verify that you have opted in to the bundle. By posting your link in this thread you approve your game to be put into the bundle and offered at the minimum price during the dates shown above.
We will be using a script to automatically pull in projects by URL. Please only include working links to public projects that you control in your post to ensure that your project gets picked up!!. Avoid any instructions or questions in your post asking us which one because we may not see it. Thanks
Can I submit non-games?
Sure, any project page on itch.io is good.
Can I submit adult content?
No. We want the bundle to be accessible to as many people as possible, so we ask that you do not submit adult content.
Can I submit my project after the bundle has started?
Yes. It’s okay if you come in late, we’ll credit anyone who has already purchased the bundle with access to your project. But we highly encourage you to submit as soon as possible so we can launch the bundle with as many projects as possible.
Will Steam (or other external keys) be given with a purchase?
No. In our experience, running a Pay-what-you-want bundle with Steam keys involved gets a lot of bitter people who just want to pay the bare minimum to try to claim all the Steam keys. That’s not in the spirit of the bundle. After the bundle is over, we may work with developers to grant keys to buyers if they have them available, but we will make no guarantees right now.
