This is the one hundred sixty-third entry in the Scratching That Itch series, wherein I randomly select and write about one of the 1741 games and game-related things included in the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality. The Bundle raised $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.
Our one hundred sixty-third random selection from the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality appears to have stalled out. It’s Clouds of Fire: Blazing Skies, by AaronMakesGames, and its tagline in the bundle reads:
Complete Chaos in this Shoot-em up meets Rouge-like with Physics!
Unfortunately I was unable to experience this chaos, because my attempts to download the game led to the image shown above. It seems that the game has been completely removed from itch.io. It doesn’t seem to be available anywhere, actually, all I could find was this trailer which reveals that it is (or was?) a pixel art fighter plane themed shoot ’em up with some roguelike elements. One that can’t be played anymore, sadly.
So that’s a regretful 163 down, but only 1578 to go!
