This is the one hundred tenth 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.
Another random selection from the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality has been delivered in a sealed envelope with a handwritten address. It’s The Reaper’s Almanac, by Mitch Schiwal, and its tagline in the bundle reads:
A letter writing game about embracing death and celebrating life.
For our younger readers, “letters” were these things we used to write, by hand, on actual paper, and then have the paper physically delivered to the person we were writing to in an envelope. People used to communicate that way, before social media. Crazy, I know.
