Two good causes received $4M each thanks to you, gamers
On Monday, June 15, Itch.io’s Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality closed its sale with a final total raised of $8,174,581.26. There were 814,520 contributors who donated an average of $10.03, and the top contribution was $5,000.
Although many, many developers submitted their projects to the bundle, perhaps indie dev Rami Ismael’s final thoughts on the matter summed up the creators’ feelings best in a 6 part tweet Monday evening:
I won't be able to stay awake to see the @itchio bundle ticker hit $8M, but I want to just say – as some random indie:
I'm so proud of everyone who made games through hard work, and added them to this bundle to help a good cause, knowing they'd never see a cent themselves. (1/6)
