Last month, Itch.io hosted their incredible Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality. This month, Itch continues their efforts towards racial justice with new bundle Visual Novel Romance Collection for Black Trans Lives. This new bundle graces players with fourteen uniquely romantic titles – several of which saw recent releases to critical acclaim – and all proceeds go to The Okra Project.


The bundle features 10 visual novels, 1 arcade brawler, and even includes a shower simulator.
Later Daters saw its release in April of this year and focuses on the world of senior dating and all of the anxieties and hopes that accompany that. Heaven Will be Mine has been regarded as one of the best visual novels on PC. The developers of Heaven Will be Mine, Pillowfight Games, has a second title included in the bundle in the form of romantic horror We Know the Devil. Arcade Spirits, another added in support of black trans lives, leans heavier into its roleplaying narrative and features a deeply customizable protagonist in addition to tracking the stats of the players as they navigate through the game’s encounters.


Other games included in the bundle are the shower simulator Rinse and Repeat, ‘BDSM boys‘ spinoff A Day Off, the episodic high-fantasy Errant Kingdom, the fully-voiced otome novel Akash: Path of the Five, the coming-out slice-of-life Yearning: A Gay Story, quirky incubus sim First Job, the lesbian BDSM story Ladykiller in a Bind, supernatural thriller When the Night Comes, the gorgeous sci-fi setting of Loveshore, and finally, the co-op, queer brawler Dream Hard.


For the price of 10$, users can snag over 130$ worth of content while simultaneously forwarding their money to a good cause. The Okra Project describes itself as “a collective that seeks to address the global crisis faced by Black Trans people by bringing home cooked, healthy, and culturally specific meals and resources to Black Trans People wherever we can reach them.” Players can pick up their bundle through the end of July.
