Itch.io’s big charity pack for Ukraine ended earlier today with over US$ 6.3 million raised, a remarkable amount of money for a very good collection of games. Now the Humble Bundle has started its own Stay With Ukraine Packageand it’s a doozy too.
The Stand With Ukraine bundle is more money for a smaller collection of games – $40 for 123 “items” – but it’s also generally much more popular than the indie-focused Itch.io collection. Game highlights include Back 4 Blood, Metro Exodus, Max Payne 3, Quantum Break, The Long Dark, Endless Space 2, Kerbal Space Program, Crying Suns, all three Amnesia games (good luck), Superhot, Broken Age, Rustler , West of Dead, System Shock: Enhanced Edition, Toejam and Earl: Back in the Groove and Book of Demons.
The games are obviously the big draw, but the pack also includes a handful of digital books, including core rulebooks for Pathfinder, Starfinder, and Warhammer Fantasy, and graphic novels like Makhno: Ukrainian Freedom Fighter, Judge Death: My Name is Death, and The Boys : The name of the game.
There’s also software for making your own games, including a book on “hands-on programming” in Python, RPG Maker VX, GameMaker Studio 2, Music Maker EDM Edition, Unity tutorials and resources, and, for those who want a little inspiration, a documentary. in the making of Lichtspeer.
The violent invasion of Ukraine is creating an urgent humanitarian crisis. We joined forces for a package of games, books and software to help victims and refugees in Ukraine. All proceeds to @razomforukraine, @RESCUEorg, @IMC_Worldwide and @DirectRelief https://t.co/yw7Mmyhcdr pic.twitter.com/Tt5zb3hPrgMarch 18, 2022
Unlike most Humble Bundles, there is no option to give the developers or the Humble team a cut: 100% of the funds raised will be split between four charities: Reason for Ukraine, InternationalI Rescue Committee, International Medical Corpsand Direct Relief. The funds will be split evenly between them by default, but you can adjust the percentages as you see fit if you wish.
The Stand With Ukraine package is already a huge success: less than five hours after its release, it has already raised more than $2 million. It is available for purchase until March 25 at humbundle. with.
