Publisher Humble Bundle announced that it has committed a further $1 million USD to its Black Game Developer Fund (BGDF), an ongoing initiative to provide funding and other financial support for projects homegrown projects conceived by Black game developers and Black-led studios.

Since its initial inception back in 2020, The Black Game Developer Fund has helped to finance over 30 independent developers with the conception, production, and publishing stages of their respective releases. This year’s investment will be directed toward the following five in-development projects:

Code Blue Games — 6Degrees: A cyberpunkian action-adventure set within a dystopian universe.

GXGrainSon — Arcus Chroma: Dimensional Shift: A revamped edition of the colorful 2D fighting game.

Weathered Sweater — Unannounced: A new title helmed by Trinidadian-American dev Ryan Huggins.

Ritual Games — Unannounced: A new title from the young, retro-gaming-inspired studio.

Joseph Hooker — Unannounced: A new title promising “retro aesthetics, modern rendering,” and a “compelling gameplay loop.”

In addition, Humble Bundle has signed a new deal with one of the initiative’s original seven beneficiaries, Adam Kareem, to publish their action platformer Protodroid DeLTA. The hi-tech, sci-fi, “solarpunk” adventure, is expected to launch on PC in early 2023 and is available for wishlisting over on the Humble Store right now.
