A reminder that this Black Friday, rather than putting on an enormous sale, @itchio will be donating their entire revenue share from all sales on the site to a pair of LGBTQ+ and climate change charities

@theoutrider @itchio they sound like the Bandcamp of games to me :) Never used them, because I'm not a big a big video game player, but this motivates me to buy a couple :)
Is it all DRM-free? Know of any great GNU/Linux open source game I should try?

@stragu the vast majority of them are! occasionally I'll run into one that for some bizzare reason just links to their steam page or suchlike but that's very much the exception. itch.io doesn't add any DRM whatsoever.

open source is pretty scarce sadly, but I've seen a few.

@caff @theoutrider wowy here we go there's my next 5 years of gaming sorted! Cheers :)

@stragu @theoutrider

That's just games I've either played and liked, or have heard good things about.

There's a ton of great free and paid games on itch! :) Enjoy! (Also, lots of Linux-compatible games)

@caff @theoutrider brilliant, I just installed the client and I'm liking it more than Steam! Love the GNU/Linux support and the space for customisation :)

@fasterthanlime great to know! Liking it more and more! :)
Cheers for letting me know.

@theoutrider @itchio meanwhile Good Old Games is off making offensive and lazy jokes about trans people

@Nine @itchio I love that there are developers in the comments saying they'll set their revshare to 100% for itch on Friday as well <3

@Nine @itchio (which is to say, 100% of their sales will go to itch and thus to charity)

@theoutrider @itchio oh my god that's beauitiful

humanity isn't trash after all ;w;

@Nine @theoutrider @itchio's ecosystem is among the best ones i have seen in videogam universe, if not *the* one.

@noiob @Tom @theoutrider

Did it. Took forever to deal with Paypal but I now have a copy. That I fully expect to be some kind of elaborate prank.

@Tom @suetanvil @theoutrider yeah pretty sure someone made a computer and was like "finally we have this super powerful tool to solve problems" and someone else was like "but what if we don't"
