Given the current state of affairs across the globe, social distancing is actually encouraged, its importance is not to be underestimated. This has led to a lot of people staying at home as much as possible, binge-watching the odd TV series or catching up on reading. But while those are by no means bad ways to pass time, video games are just… better. As such, how about a collection of discounted games from a variety of developers (including several freebies!)? Let’s hear it for Games to help you stay inside!
So, what we have here in this lovely little collection over on itch.io is… a grand total of, at the time of writing, fifty-five indie games from (almost) as many developers who have banded together to do what they can to stop the spread of COVID-19. I mean, whether you’re a massive fan of video games or simply like to dip your toes in that form of entertainment every now and then, there’s no denying the appeal of free games, after all. These are definitely present and accounted for here, and those that aren’t free, well, they still carry steep discounts. Definitely something for everyone too, virtually every genre imaginable partaking.
Stopping the spread of COVID-19 is on all of us, so make your time social distancing a little easier. Here’s a collection of games from developers who are offering special discounts to do what they can to help.
As you go through the list, do keep in mind that expiration dates on the discounts are going to vary a great deal – some have less than 24 hours to go while there are those that span several months. Because of this, I opted to not do the usual list thing, instead simply recommending you browse the collection, over on itch.io. Oh, and let me know in the comments if you come across a gem, eh?
