Just a handful of the games I’m super excited to play off of the Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality on itch.io, there’s well over 50 I want to play at some point lol. Minimum donation of $5 for 1000+ games, all proceeds are split between the NAACP and community bail funds. There’s only 2 days left (as of 6/13) if you would like to donate and get a bunch of great indie games!

so i recently got night in the woods in the bundle for racial justice and equality on itch.io
i watched playthroughs of the game when it came out, but man it hits SO MUCH harder now
so many ideals that are hitting hard in 2020 america
so many conversations that matter more than me now that i am also a 20 year old college dropout who wants to be gay do crime
still such a good game
i love it so much

Berlynn’s recs list for itch.io’s Bundle for Racial Justice & Equality (Part Two)
Admittedly, my first round of recs from the Racial Justice bundle was not the most revelatory. “Wow, Berlynn, ‘A Short Hike’ is a fun game? I only heard that from everyone else since forever.” Well, today I've got recs that are a bit more obscure, some of them from as far down the list as page 56 (sorry pages 57-59!).
Tumblr media
The Deer God
Platformers don't tend to hold my interest, possibly because I am still holding on to the belief that no one has improved upon Super Mario World for the SNES, and no one ever will. But I played Deer God for several hours straight, saying to myself “Okay, just let me find a save point, and I'll quit for a while,” then finding something intriguing I wanted to resolve, then again saying “Okay, the NEXT save point, I'll take a break...” The controls are super tight, and I found the amount of dexterity required to be challenging without being frustrating (as most platformers these days seem to be all about making you hit 15 buttons in the exact right sequence in order to avoid the dozen flying saw blades and two dozen fireballs without then landing on the spikes. I swear to god when I see walls of spikes in a platformer trailer or screenshot I just move on).
Tumblr media
Stage Fright
Now here's something you don't see every day: a rhythm/horror game. Your character is a concert pianist performing for an audience, and you must play the SDF and JKL keys as a keyboard. Depending on how well or poorly you do, your keyboard may glitch out, or your vision may become dim or blurry. Not the most original of horror trappings, but they happen in during a unique kind of gameplay.
Tumblr media
J. Edgar Hoover vs. Kennedy
I have played a lot of very weird video games in my life, but I have never before played a game where you are J. Edgar Hoover and one of your story options is to make Bobby Kennedy's children cry.  
That's not the whole point of the game, of course; the point is to do your job as FBI Director to the best of your ability and not get fired. You can delegate some of your duties, to focus more on the story, or micromanage to your heart's content. Admittedly, this game is not for everyone; you really have to be interested in the subject matter. But if you're a Cold War buff like me, this is a real treat, because how many other games are there about this subject?
Tumblr media
Word After Word
For this one you need at least one other person, and you have to be able to connect all participants' keyboards to one computer. Adjectives appear, and each player must come up with a noun that follows that adjective. The more popular the noun, the more points you get. The first person to fill the bar wins. It's not as exciting or funny as, say, Quiplash, but sometimes you want a chill, non-disruptive game you can play with anyone, you know?
Tumblr media
Remnants
Beautiful retro-style exploration game. This game looks like people think the old Amiga/ZX Spectrum games looked like in the 80's, but they were not this pretty. Not a challenging game (at least as far as I played to) but nice ambiance when you want to zone out in the dark.
Tumblr media
Knightmare Tower
Zany arcade chop-'em-up where you defy gravity to save princesses in a tower. I really liked the controls on this one; they're a little wacky and it took a few tries to get the hang of them, but I enjoyed it much more than a typical button-mashing shooter. You can download this one from the app store as well, but my understanding is the controls are not as good. Playing this on the PC, I had much more success with a controller than with the keyboard.
Tumblr media
Bold Blade
This game is very silly and very satisfying, especially if you're like me and get most of your dopamine hits from upgrading weapons and armor. This game has almost no story; it is completely dedicated to upgrading your sword in particular: increasing not just its damage power but its physical dimensions, until you are swinging a weapon that would make Cloud Strife say “Damn that's a huge sword.”
Tumblr media
Ball Buster
Here's another “Breakout clone with a twist” (I like Breakout, okay?). In this one, the blocks fall slowly towards you, like Space Invaders, and the game can end not only when you lose all your lives, but also when a block reaches the bottom of the screen. You can also choose to destroy a ball in play if you need to start over again to destroy a block that's close to you. Very simple but addictive fun. Also, the trailer is hilarious; even if this game does not interest you, do yourself a favor and watch this:
youtube
.
Tumblr media
Stowaway
There are so many first-person horror games to chose from, but if you like the claustrophobia and spookiness of the original Alien, you’ll want to choose this one. The story is predictable, but the graphics, lighting, and sound are all perfectly tuned to induce suspense. The game is not punishing -- the terror comes entirely from the atmosphere. Takes about 30 minutes to play.

EVER SINCE I DECIDED TO SWITCH TO A MONTHLY REVIEW INSTEAD OF WEEKLY, IT FEELS LIKE AN ETERNITY BETWEEN REVIEWS!!! BUT EITHER WAY, i want to talk about tamashii this month! a game i started months ago and ended up ragequiting only to pick up again months later and finally finish (i think it took me like six hours? maybe longer). i have a lot to say but i’ll try and keep it brief because i’m super tired.
no need for tws for anything discussed in this review! everything below the cut as usual LETS GOOOOOOOOOOOOO
* SIDENOTE: idk who reads these! if you do, thanks! i just wanted to let you know that i have a backloggd! i use this website to log all my epic cool pogchamp gamer moments. my profile can be found here (link)! this site allows for custom lists and i have made one for games in the bundle for racial justice and equality that i have played, in order of best to worst (in my expert opinion). you can find that here (link)! if you have an account we should follow each other :-)! NOW ONTO THE REVIEW LETS GO FOR REAL THIS TIIIMMMMEEEE!!!
let’s start with the things i really liked about tamashii because there isn’t much to say in all honesty ... activate ... bullet points!!
i remember liking the music when i was playing but thinking back on it now, i can’t remember like ... a single song. so i’m assuming just very okay-ish music for the most part. nothing to complain about but nothing really standing out either.
the art was really cool. i very much enjoyed the level designs, the character art, etc. it was all extremely cool to look at and obviously had a lot of time and effort put into them. for the most part, tamashii is a very visually appealing game if you’re into obscene body horror, nudity and sacrilegious theming
the writing was alright. it came off very wordy at times but assisted in setting the atmosphere and narrative. i had to keep from rolling my eyes at times because it was a bit too edgy (usually when it’s text displayed throughout the game but not the actual dialogue of the characters. i enjoyed the conversations between the characters thoroughly). overall, i liked it and think it contributed greatly to the overall production of the game.
and that’s all i liked ......... onto the things i DIDN’T like
bugs
this game was very buggy, an experience all too common with pretty much all indie platformers i come across. i get it, it’s hard. like these games are not made overnight. BUT the game’s difficulty needs to be adjusted to consider these potential bugs. it’s extremely unfair for me to jump on a moving platform only for my little fella to phase right through it. one time is annoying, but by the hundredth it’s pretty infuriating.
also at one point, the music would just stop playing entirely. when i tried to remedy this by rebooting the game (after finishing a level, assuming the game woould autosave completion of said level), i returned to find that it had not in fact saved it and i had to redo the level once again. pretty annoying when i was already on like ... hour three of this run.
no hope
which leads me to the fact that some of these levels are just set up for you to insta-fail. there’s no way for you to react on the first go when working your way through some of these because of how the level is essentially framed. it’s like you jumping down into a pit but don’t see at the last minute there’s a tiny ledge on the far left for you to land on with a row of spikes for you to be impaled on beneath it but by the time you notice it, you’re already a kebab.
don’t get me wrong, i’m not saying the game should be like ... just easy as hell or whatever. obviously, the dev wanted a more difficult platformer and i also don’t personally care about these, i think i was so numb about dying in-game at this point, every death was just ...... meaningless to me. but someone in the stream pointed out that this was very inconveniencing for other players who strived for perfect runs. it def sets a standard and guarantees failure the first time around. kind of sucks. (tho i suppose if the game had replayability wrt story and the like, i might not mind going back a few more times but if i’m just gonna be experiencing the same shit over again, it’s definitely not worth it. not to mention the other issues i have with the game)
draw me a fucking map
the layout to get from level to level is VERY confusing. it’s very important in platformers to assist the player in knowing where exactly they need to go. this game did not do that whatsoever. very annoying.
BOO
speaking of annoying, i super do NOT appreciate the jumpscares. there are MULTIPLE occasions during which you are just walking around the map trying to get from level to level where the game will randomly jumpscare you, showing you artistic renditions of gore/body horror while a screaming audio clip loops. this then changes the map into a more gory version of things (so same layout but everything is fleshy and bloody).
i’m fine with the layout changes, but the jumpscare screamers were ABSOLUTELY inappropriate. they completely ruined my immersion in the game and didn’t even fucking scare me. they only annoyed the piss out of me.
the dev could have very well used the glitch effects they love so much to alternate between the regular version of the map versus the gorier version instead of using screamers as a transition. there are no warnings for these jumpscares btw, not in any game summaries or in within the game itself. i’m not going to go into any more explanation than this but: unprompted jumpscares are ableist! game devs! take note!
the last level (and hidden level??)
so i did all (four or five levels? i dont remember i don’t care) and completed the game, i did them all on the more difficult option (before you proceed in each you’re given the option of an easier or more difficult route, the latter rewards you with a runelike object that allows you to unlock some sort of hidden level or room? once you’ve gathered them for all levels). so i literally didn’t even get to go to the hidden room with all the runes because the game threw me into the final level without warning. i’m gonna talk about the last level before proceeding.
um it was super bizarre. it suddenly changed into a bullet hell type game for no reason which is stupid because up until then, it was just a platformer and is ... advertised as a platformer. it took a while to adjust to this but not very long because i’m super epic but that doesn’t mean it didn’t annoy the fuck out of me and also will probably be very difficult for other people. i don’t even think it was my skill getting me through this, i was just so annoyed that my spite carried me to the end point. at one point the main boss who is an entity who takes up one entire end of the screen and then chases you as you hop and run to get away. well that creature at one point turns into a strange 3d/CG type model. i really had no idea what was going on. it was just very jarring. i can’t tell if i liked it or not. i was just so tired at that point (it was like 4 am and i had been playing since about 7) that i didn’t give a shit about anything going on.
there’s other stuff design/artwise that happens but i thought that looked kind of cool. i think if the game had not emotionally drained me to a state of mental and psychological paralysis, i might have even genuinely cared about how cool it was. but honestly it felt more like i was walking by a store with a nice pair of boots displayed in the window, i just kind of thought to myself “oh those are nice” and then proceeded to never think about it again. i don’t even know if the order i’m discussing the final levels in are correct because i genuinely can’t be bothered to 1. maintain that information in my mind and 2. boot up the game and check.
wrt the hidden level, i literally don’t remember if i ended up unlocking it. as i’ve mentioned before, a lot about this game was very confusing. the map, the direction, instructions, etc. it was just a mess. i definitely did collect all those runes but i don’t remember going to the mystery room where i had previously noted they were being displayed. i don’t know if it unlocks that automatically or if i have to visit it when i finish the game? all i know is that as soon as the credits cropped up, i just left. i genuinely wanted nothing else to do with it.
-
FINAL THOUGHTS
i’m just honestly disappointed. the game started off pretty strong. i found myself drawn in by the characters. their motives and their stories. i wanted to learn more. but then i was barraged by ridiculously difficult levels (thank you for the hand fatigue <3) unhelped by the swam of bugs and made worse by the annoying, unnecessary and jarring jumpscares. this game had a lot of potential and the dev(s?) failed it.
this game didn’t need to be made scary by having someone screech in your players ears at random intervals. the tone was set by the narrative. it was already scary because of the compelling story we were following. the subtle scares of having these random creatures appear for just a second as you explore the map only to vanish suddenly ...THAT made me shit my pants. not screaming or stupidly edited gore images.
i feel like at one point it just became something for youtubers to react to. they wanted to make them scream and be overly and embarrassingly dramatic, so they added stupid jumpscares for them to scream to. they wanted them to ragequit and bash their keyboards and whine and complain about losing, so they ramped up their difficulty so that they could do that.
if they had put more effort i think into the world building and story of the game instead of all that other dumb shit, this game could have really taken off. they did great setting everything up, but i felt like they kind of forgot there even was a story by the end of it. they just wanted to put you off as much as possible.
* note: i notice this far into the review that i haven’t really discussed the story as in depth as i usually do but i normally do that with games with stories i don’t like (towayami for example) or when discussing a game i did like wherein needing to know the story is necessary for me to talk about other game mechanics (death and taxes for example). it isn’t necessary for me to get into specifics about tamashii’s story for me to talk about anything else about it so it never kind of came up. i can do that for people who would want me to but if you think you can stomach the jumpscares and the inevitable despair your 3000th death will bring you, i do recommend giving it a shot (but only if you already have the game bc you acquired it via a bundle. i honestly would not pay money for this shit.)
anyway ... idk ... not much else to say. another game tossed into the pile of “things that could have been interesting and cool”. i’m just glad to finally be able to be done with this game and move onto the next!

Berlynn’s recs list for itch.io’s Bundle for Racial Justice & Equality (Part Three)
“Berlynn, are you actually bothering to write up more recs for this bundle? That was like months ago!” Okay well first of all, time isn’t real anymore, but let’s say hypothetically it was, that makes it now December, which means it's time for Hunker-Down Hobbies. It's going to be a long cold next few months (tw: Australia erasure), so here are some more recs in case you, like, me, are revisiting this bundle to pass the short days away.
Click here to see my first round of recs Click here to see my second round of recs
Tumblr media
Beglitched
I'll admit, I am dumb as a brick and did not understand how these puzzles worked at first. But I watched a Let's Play for ten minutes and was like “Got it” and then had lots of fun.
Tumblr media
Glittermitten Grove
I did not know the truth about this game, and so I tried to play it unironically, failed, and watched a Let's Play in order to get a tutorial. Then I learned the secret. I have no idea what would have happened to my fragile brainmeats if I had found the secret while actually playing. I can't really say any more than that.
Tumblr media
Democratic Socialism Simulator
With the understanding that this game is misleadingly easy to win because it makes entrenched systems of power and wealth as simple to dismantle as the flick of the mouse, I heartily endorse the game on the grounds that it is cute and funny.
Tumblr media
The Sealed Library
A storytelling tabletop RPG in which you are the last remaining librarian in a city that is under siege. Meant for one player, but you could play with more, with one person rolling the dice and dictating the action and the other(s) writing their own journal entries. This one's quite sad, but well-crafted. Be sure to not read the last page until you have played through the game at least once.
Tumblr media
The Lost Art of Innkeeping
Cute management game where you must fix up a dilapidated manor house and turn it into a profitable hotel. It’s challenging but not punishing -- with no walkthrough or hints I managed to secure a victory (by the skin of my teeth) in 5 or 6 hours.
Tumblr media
Picky Pop
A simple but endlessly replayable little puzzle game with domino-like tiles. You can also play this one if you have an iPhone.
Tumblr media
Flashpoint
I recently got into squad-based tactics games, and I like this one because it's not just the same old “you shoot them, they shoot you.” Instead, your team are firefighters and your goal is to save as many people as possible from burning buildings. (The game is not gruesome but people will die in the fires so obviously don't play this if that will upset you.)
Tumblr media
Glitch Strike
Puzzle game where the premise is that you are a hacker and you are trying to break into systems. Like all my favorite puzzle games, this one is easy-to-learn-lifetime-to-master, with a reasonable learning curve, and the graphics & sound are appealingly retrowave.
Tumblr media
Dofromantik
Puzzle game where you place tiles and build a little countryside. Peaceful, meditative; a simpler version of Islanders.

Link
Includes Night in the Woods, Oxenfree, Minit, Semblance, Overland and not much else of note let’s be real but it’s for a great cause and if you were planning on getting either I can guarantee they’re all at the very least worth the $5 bottom tier donation. They’ve currently raised $637,000 over three days at the time of writing (06/06) and are hoping to hit 1 mill over the next nine, so the fundraiser ends on June 15th, 2020.
edit (10/06): Modern classic Celeste has now also been included!
edit: 16/06) Sale Over!

I can’t believe that the itch.io Racial Justice Bundle is over a thousand games and resources for a $5 charity donation and people are *still* complaining that it doesn’t come with Steam keys or that there’s “only” ten games they want. Its like the more you get, the more you want.
I hope this leads to a higher profile for itch, too. They are a better platform for indie games than Steam.
I’ve been trying to make a shortlist of games I didn’t own yet and want to try, and I ran out of energy around the 60 games + 7 ttrpgs mark. haven’t even started looking at the light novels yet. And that’s as someone who doesn’t touch platformers, shooters, first person puzzlers or arcade games. I’m a narrative game and sim kind of girl. Anyway, here is a (probably out of date but useful) list of visual novel and visual novel-adjacent stuff in the bundle. (Not mine, it was the helpful and excellent u/ExcellentBread)

ok so i’m pretty sure i mentioned before but i wanted to move viddy game saturday to tuesdays instead! i don’t exactly remember why but here i am doing it!! (i think it was to give me more time between review days to like process what i’ve watched or whatever or something like that idk anyway). OKAY SO TODAY WE PLAYED MILKMAID OF THE MILKY WAY!!!! it was ............. interesting. gonna start tagging the games in this bundle as racist or not racist i think because jesus h christ am i shocked at how many times i’ve been microaggressed playing the games in this fucking bundle KJNGMAKEJNAKGAN
anyway below the cut! warning for spoilers as always and also mentions of animal death, alien death? i guess, racism obviously, and uh i think that’s it. thats all i can remember. anyway here we gooooooooooooooooo (under da cut as usual)
first of fucking all
ok so i tried playing this game last week but every time i tried to stream it, the game would just entirely shut down. it was extremely frustrating. this is literally the only time this has happemed. it was super annoying to deal with. i ended up having to just stream my entire screen (thankfully i have two monitors) and everyone watching had to sacrifice enjoying one of few things that made this game enjoyable, which was the awesome music. if it was a problem on my end, sure i’ll take the L but i did what i have done with every single other game i’ve streamed (strum? stram?) before and this was the only one giving me this shit.
anyway
so the game is pretty interesting in concept. a milkmaid living in the mountains of norway in the 1920s has her cows abducted by aliens but she won’t let them be taken that easily! she manages to get on board the ship at the last moment, only to discover that the alien queen (who is in possession of a machine that takes life from one entity and transfers it to another) is planning on sacrificing her cows to maintain the lives of their own alien livestock. as you explore as this milkmaid (named ruth), you discover your cows have not been the only targets of the queen. she has drained the years from all of her people, presumably to live on for eternity. you meet all these victims as you proceed through the game.
eventually, you square off against the queen. you win thanks to the help of one of ur cows, who unfortunately loses her life in the process, and then ... get crowned alien queen ... (will discuss later). you leave your milkmaid life behind and join these alien travelers in .. fuckin’ around in space, i guess.
i don’t LIKE aliens really but i can tolerate them in stories when i know to expect them and the aliens in this story weren’t some big plot twist as they are implied/mentioned in trailers and plot summaries. i’m not complaining about this because i definitely would have been annoyed if i wasn’t expecting them (despite the game’s name, i just really hate aliens, dude KJANGMAEKJGN well more alien stories than like actual aliens i guess)
this game is a point and click puzzle game. the controls were kind of really tedious to use and the puzzles eventually got to a point where they were just ... nonsensical and infuriating. i ended up looking up a walkthrough to get through the final battle with the queen because i was so frustrated and annoyed. no one would be able to use rational thought to do some of the things necessary in this game, especially not when like ... in her actual predicament. imagine getting flung through the air and slammed onto the ground over and over by an alien queen and thinking “oh! i know, im gonna use this screwdriver to unscrew this pipe and then put a nut in these cog wheels nearby to stop them and then tie a rope around the wheels and attach this empty oil tin to the rope and then set the cog wheels off so the oil tin clanging against the dangling pipe makes a cow bell sound ALL WHILE I’M GETTING FLUNG AROUND THROUGH THE AIR LIKE A RAG DOLL” ............ i couldn’t even think of that while NOT getting flung through the air like a rag doll. are you fucking kidding me? lol
i did know i’d need to use the seed on the cog wheels at some point because it’s hinted at by one of the alien villagers but ... not like this ... lmfao ... anyway, speaking of alien villagers
let’s talk about Racism
can we please stop taking the cultures of people of color to portray alien or fantasy races in the VERY SPECIFIC RECURRING CIRCUMSTANCE that the white characters are just normal humans? i really don’t mind our real world and diverse cultures being used to inspire science fiction and fantasy. hell, i encourage it - but when you’re taking from these cultures to be portrayed as The Other and to top it off with them being in desperate need of saving by White Protagonist .... it’s just a hugely offensive narrative that perpetuates a harmful white savior myth. i really didn’t like this at all and it made me immensely uncomfortable and i’d be lying if i didn’t say that i was worried about what the aliens were going to look like before they were even introduced.
the creators very clearly took a “”””middle eastern””””” inspired turn with the game. while i hate that term, i use it because it was obvious that the creators really hadn’t given it much thought outside of that term. very aladdin-esque. which was weird considering the extremely non-descript interior and exterior of the space craft. there’s a bizarre mish-mash of arabic and hindi names used for the aliens. they wear capes and hoods, some almost even resembling hijab. there’s a character up in the library of the game who sits on a carpet and is philosophical or whatever. it also unnerves me that they all have blue skin considering like ~genie~ stereotypes. the women also all wear bindis ... it was just very weird and unpleasant to experience. i really don’t understand what the creators thought they were doing with this.
the fact that ruth ends up the new queen and ruling over all these people too is just ..... so much. i really wish she would have returned home with her cows and just kept living her life. it’s all just ... a lot to dissect and super unpleasant to think about. just .. why why why??
another game added to the list of “ironically on the bundle for racial justice and equality” games thus far ... it’s literally been fucking .... idk i lost count but, i think i remember at the least 4 or 5 other games that have been pretty fucking racist so far. a huge disappointment but i guess at least the money went to a good cause. :/
everything else
as i mentioned before, the music in the game was really good!! the pixel art was also awesome. i loved the backgrounds in the fjord especially. everything was really pretty to look at. i wish there was maybe a little more to explore and do. i really enjoyed making butter and stuff. i wish we got to do more farm stuff like that. i think everything kind of started off right away with the storm fucking shit up and tools missing and all that. (idk why the tools were missing and the crank for the separator were missing? that was never really addressed again lol?)
i wish we could go to town too! why even have that as an option on the map if ur just gonna tell us we can’t go because it’s too far? a cute pixel nowregian town from the 1920s in this style would have been so cute. it didn’t even have to have a lot of like interactive things, but just to pad on a bit and make the experience more fun and immersive would have been cool!
conclusion
i think this is all i got to say about this game. i’m def not gonna play it again. just another overall disappointment in this bundle. i wouldn’t really recommend it. though the art and cows were cute to look at, you could pretty much get the same experience by just googling “cows in field”. that’s all for viddy game day today!! thanks for reading if you did!!! see yall next week!!! BYEEE!!!!!! :,3
sidenote
i started playing this other game named tamashi. it’s incredibly difficult and confusing as shit. i’m hoping to finish it eventually, but i’m basically just progressing in bits by playing for like an hour a week because my hands get very fatigued because i’m disabled and every day i wake up in a society that really doesn’t give a shit about disabled people .. LMAO. so anyway, hope to one day beat this so i can talk about it. it’s a very cool looking game and i like it a lot conceptually. the actual game play itself is pretty dogshit, however, so it’s hard not to have ..... some resentment towards it.
anyway yeah, just wanted to make this note here now! idk why but yeah whatever. anyway SEE U NEXT WEEKEND FR THIS TIME!! GNGN HEHE

Gen 3, 4 and 5 of the Baird legacy family supports #BlackLivesMatter and the ongoing protests around the world against racism and police brutality.  
Outside of the Sims world, Black people and communities still face scores of systemic injustices that in too many horrible cases take their lives. 
Though I’m a PoC myself, I think about my privileges and unconscious biases that perpetrate racial inequality and injustice towards Black communities. It’s easy to shut it off and escape in game where everything is perfect, but even how we play shows off our prejudices, I think about that all the time even when I just build and I commit to always do better.
