The Malaysia Flood Relief 2021 Bundle is available on itch.io for those looking to help those displaced by the recent floods in the country, while grabbing a bundle of games! Starting from $15 and going up to $45, the bundle has 25 items and will run for roughly another 3 days. Here’s a description of the bundle:
Malaysia has experienced severe rainstorms and flash flooding since 17 December 2021, leaving many people stranded and vulnerable. As such, this bundle aims to raise funds for flood relief efforts in Malaysia due to these recent floods.
This bundle collects several games from Malaysian tabletop game designers (Aaron Lim, Alyssa Yeo, Centaur Games, Kristen Chin, Nana, Rick Chia, Samuel Mui Shen Ern, Tun Kai Poh, Valis Teoh and Zuhayri Mohamed), who have generously donated their games to support this fundraising effort. Please do support their games and gamemaking if you are able to.
From previous years’ experience, this isn’t just a one-off issue. Due to the impacts of climate change and other factors like poor infrastructure upkeep and deforestation, the impact of seasonal rains and floods in Malaysia has been exacerbated in recent years.
Even as we are raising funds for immediate needs, we also urge people who are not able to support our efforts monetarily to do what you can to support efforts to fight climate change and ecological exploitation that leads to these severe weather events.
Do note that some of these items are marked 18+. If you fancy a change of pace away from software, and keep these for an in-person get-together, why not take a gander for the Malaysia Flood Relief 2021 Bundle and contribute to charity?
UPDATE, 23 DECEMBER 2021, 10:30: The bundle has now expanded its scope to the Tulong Kabataan Network for relief efforts in the Philippines post Typhoon Odette / Rai. Let’s keep the charity going!
