Devs raise money for indie collective Juegos Rancheros via itch.io bundle

Fantastic Arcade is happening next week in Austin, Texas, and now a posse of high-profile indie devs are selling copies of games they'll be debuting at the Arcade in a new bundle on itch.io.

Annual indie game exhibition Fantastic Arcade is happening next week in Austin, Texas, and now a posse of high-profile indie devs are selling copies of games they'll be debuting at the Arcade in a new bundle on itch.io.

All proceeds from sales of the $15 (or more, if you like) bundle go to support Austin-based indie game dev collective Juegos Rancheros, the non-profit which is responsible for orchestrating Fantastic Arcade. every year.

This isn't the first time a bundle of Fantastic Arcade games have been sold for charity, of course -- last year there was a Fantastic Arcade Humble Bundle, and a portion of its proceeds went to charities Worldreader and Able Gamers. But it's interesting to see the folks behind Fantastic Arcade turn to itch.io, and notable that all proceeds from sales of this year's bundle go directly to Juegos Rancheros.

Developers featured in this year's Fantastic Arcade bundle include French collective Klondike (Inspector Woof & The Vegetable High School), Katamari Damacy dev Keita Takahashi (who created Alphabet with Finji cofounder Adam Saltsman) and Downwell creator Ojiro "Moppin" Fumoto, who has now made the game Nium with an artist who goes by Nemk.
