“Purchases of the Celebrating Black Creators and Characters bundle will help support Gameheads, a Californian-based organisation that envisions a world where low income youth and youth of colour are equipped to thrive and succeed in any field they choose, including the tech and video game industries,” shared Humble.
Announcing the bundle, Humble wrote: “February is Black History Month, when people in the U.S. and around the world look back and reflect on the struggles and hard-won achievements of Black people throughout history. It’s also an invitation for all of us to think about and discuss the ongoing fight for racial equity and justice today, and renew our commitment to being advocates for social causes that support the Black community everywhere.”
“The eight games in this bundle are a mix of titles that were brought to life thanks to the work and talent of Black artists, engineers, designers, and developers, along with games that prominently feature Black characters in the stories they tell,” Humble continued.
Last year, Humble raised over £15million for humanitarian organisations assisting those affected by the war in Ukraine, with its Stand With Ukraine bundle.
In other news, The Last Of Us star Bella Ramsey has revealed that they’ve finally started playing the video game which the hit HBO series was based on.
It comes after they and co-star Pedro Pascal were “encouraged” to avoid the games ahead of the TV adaptation.
