This is the twenty-fifth entry in the Scratching That Itch series, wherein I randomly select and write about one of the
1704 1741 games and game-related things included in the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality. The Bundle raised $8,175,279.81 $8,149,829.66 split evenly between the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund and Community Bail Fund, but don’t worry if you missed it. There are plenty of ways you can help support the vital cause of racial justice; try here for a start. Lastly, as always, you may click on images to view larger versions.
Readers, it has come to my attention that there are more than 1704 items in the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality. There are in fact 1741. I am certain that when the bundle had just finished, there were 1704 items included, and this was also reported elsewhere, so I’m not crazy. At some point later, more items were added, bringing the total to 1741. But never fear, my random selections have actually been random, as they are based on first picking one of the 58 pages of entries in the bundle, and then picking one of the 30 entries per page (except for page 58, which has 31 items to account for the single entry on page 59). I simply realized that (58*30) + 1 = 1741, not 1704, and then confirmed the correct total on the itch.io page. I have edited earlier entries in the series to reflect this new total. It’s a small enough change that our percentage of completion is barely affected.
This time, the random numbers picked 2d flight simulator, by phstsoftware. Its tagline in the bundle reads:
An arcade 2d flight simulator
I guess the title is pretty self-explanatory.
