The Queer Games Bundle is back once again after raising over $112,000 last year. Similarly, it aims to fundraise for queer independent game developers in 2022. The bundle spans from games, books, tools and even soundtracks – although it’s mostly games.
There’s everything from visual novels, action titles, puzzles and dating aims. Funds raised throughout the month will go straight to game developers who have contributed to the bundle, save some developers that are opting out of the pool to increase revenue for others, according to a Queer Games Bundle organiser.
Speaking with Polygon, the organiser said, “Our goal is a future in which there are no more starving indie developers. Where corporations don’t rule our brains pumping out endless sequels but instead we have a vibrant games community that produces countless works. To get there we need developers to gain experience and make many games and that can only happen with time and a livable income.”
The Queer Games Bundle us currently available for purchase at $60, but users have an option to pay what they can from $10.
The Bundle includes hundreds of games with plenty of them to keep you busy for a while. Some of the games include: A Mortician’s Tale, Later Daters, an elderly dating simulator; A Normal Lost Phone, a mystery game contained in a digital smartphone, Co-open, a game about grocery shopping as a kid and many others.
Earlier this year a similar games bundle ended up raising over $2.4million for relief charities in Ukraine.
