Wow, 1500 games? How much does that cost?

It wasn't all video games, though it mostly was. There were also tabletop game books, resources for game makers, books about video games (e.g. Okay, Hero, a collection of retrospective essays about the Metal Gear Solid series), and some other stuff. Just a grab bag of the stuff you can find on itch.

Of the games, you had everything from extremely-polished titles that got attention in the gaming press to small, rough, experimental ones that had probably never sold a single copy before being included in the bundle and probably won't ever sell another one again (this isn't meant to be a knock against them; those titles have artistic value. It just is what it is in terms of commercial viability).

It was 5 dollars as a base price but you could add more. It was on itch.io and the money went to the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund and Community Bail Fund. The bundle is no longer available, but I figure reviews would be good to help the people who bought it sort through the games, and people who didn't buy the bundle could find games from cool indie devs they otherwise wouldn't have known.

I think most do, but a lot of them don't. That's a pretty good point, I'll make sure to make a note of it when I do the videos.

Well, it'd be smarter to have them written, but I'm gonna be dumb and make videos.

one video per game or would you cover multiple games in a video?

These are all indie games and a lot of them are very short, so I was planning on doing multiple quick fire reviews over the span of longer videos. For instance, I was gonna start with something like a 40 minute video that reviews all the games that were released in January 2020, and sorta go from there.

Jeez, 1500 games. That sounds like a lot of work. I’d be interested in the reviews for sure though

Luckily, since they are indie games, the vast majority of them are pretty short and I can knock em out pretty quick. But yea, even with that it's gonna take WHILE.
