Play a game with me … Dungeons and Lesbians

Hey! Those of you following me on social media (or knowing me IRL) may have noticed that I have been promoting itch.io’s “Racial Justice and Equality” Bundle … There’s no real reason behind it except that I actually like the idea and it’s something I want to support. You get a massive amount of games, engines, assets, pnps and so much more for 5$ or more and all of the proceeds will be donated to Black Lives Matter!And as gamers we have a huge problem of racism, sexism and homophobia within our community (mostly with mainstream following people I feel like … The indie scene seems so much more chill) so anything that promotes a different view is welcome here!So as a way to promote this: I thought I’d just play through a couple of games from the bundle.
