The indie bundle has already raised over $1 million for aid in Ukraine
Indie developers are bundling their games and content together to support Ukraine. The Bundle for Ukraine on Itch has raised over $1 million in aid for the region, and still has nine days to go.
The bundle, hosted by Necrosoft Games, has 991 pieces of content in it. These range from indie games to assets, tabletop adventures, books, zines, music, and more. The total of buying it all together would equal about $6,539. The whole Itch bundle for Ukraine is available for a minimum $10 donation.

All proceeds will be split between two charities: International Medical Corps, which provides medical assistance in Ukraine, and Voice of Children, a Ukrainian organization that helps children and has been providing additional aid like shelters.
Many of these games have never been in a big bundle before, and according to Necrosoft, some even signed up for Itch just to be in this charity bundle. A good cause is reason enough to pitch in and help out, but here’s a quick rundown of some notable indies in the pack:
- Kingdom: Two Crowns
- Lucifer Within Us
- Sundered: Eldritch Edition
- Baba Is You
- Quadrilateral Cowboy
- Cook, Serve, Delicious! 2!!
- Moon Hunters
- TowerFall Ascension
- Long Gone Days
That’s just a handful of the almost 1,000 items in the Itch Bundle for Ukraine. As I was writing this story up, the amount raised rose over $1 million, and keeps on steadily going up. Much like the Itch Black Lives Matter bundle, it’s a bunch of quality games for a really good cause.
