Best Games in the itch io Black Lives Matter Bundle

Night in the Woods

Night in the Woods puts you in the shoes of Mae, a young woman (cat) that has dropped out of college to go back home. But, things aren’t the same in her old town and mysterious events begin to occur.

It’s a fantastic little adventure game that’ll hit you in the feels, and that’s even before you get to the famous “knife fight” scene.

2064: Read Only Memories

2064 is a dope cyberpunk point and click adventure game with branching paths and aesthetically-pleasing pixel art, taking place in San Franciso in the near future. Prepare to get emotional as playing through this game as it can be heartbreaking and also thrilling.

A Short Hike

A Short Hike is a very short experience –maybe two hours long, at the most– about hiking/flying up a tall mountain to get cell phone service to call your mother. You meet cool, memorable characters along the way and some might describe it as a lo-fi Animal Crossing game.

Minit

Minit is a top-down Zelda-inspired adventure game where you can explore a world to solve mysteries and find special items but the catch is that you die every 60 seconds, forcing you to think and act quickly.

Celeste

Best Games in the itch io Black Lives Matter Bundle

Celeste is a very difficult but forgiving platformer that has you in the role of a young woman who is attempting to climb Celeste Mountain to literally fight against her anxiety.

A Normal Lost Phone

A Normal Lost Phone lets you discover the intimate secrets that are within the cell phone of a girl named Sam. At first, it’s fun to scroll through pictures and private text conversations, but the more that you dig in, the more you’ll see that Sam wasn’t just a normal girl.

The King’s Bird

The King’s Bird is a gorgeously designed 2D platformer that’s all about precision and momentum-based movement. It’s a very charming and atmospheric indie title that’ll definitely chill you out.

Cook Serve Delicious 2

In Cook Serve Delicious 2, you can build your restaurant from the ground up by controlling every aspect of the business. If you like food and management sims, then it is a must-play from the itch io bundle.

Overland

Overland is a post-apocalyptic turn-based strategy/survival game that seems to be inspired by comics like The Walking Dead. Its minimalistic art style is absolutely delightful and there are even choices to make that can alter the narrative.

Oxenfree

Night School Studio’s indie adventure game, Oxenfree, takes inspiration from the classic teen movies from the 80s like the Goonies and Stand By Me. The story seems basic at the beginning but it ends up transforming into something truly unsettling.

Octodad: Deadliest Catch

The last game on this list that’s part of this itch io bundle is none other than Octodad: Deadliest Catch. This one is an oldie but definitely a goodie. The premise? Control an octopus father who is trying to hide the fact that he’s an octopus. Now watch what happens when you try to use the bathroom or go shopping in a grocery store.
