Queer Games Bundle 2024 - Our top 5 Games

In the Queer Games Bundle you can find about 500 games, assets and more in support of LGBTQ+ games, creators and game devs. We picked some highlights for you.

Since 2021, the Queer Games Bundle has been showcasing hundreds of games on the platform itch.io in support of LGBTQ+ indie, micro indie, art, and experimental developers and creators during Pride Month in June. Across all genres, from classic adventure games and RPGs, to fighting games, visual novels, simulations, and experimental short experiences - about 500 games and projects are participating in the bundle in 2024.

All funds raised will be distributed equally among the submitters.

Job Spotlight: Bytro

Bytro is a well-established institution in the Hamburg games industry and the mobile and browser games market. Their first game, Supremacy 1914, will turn 15 years old in May of 2024. This is a rare milestone for any game, especially considering that this historic war strategy game might not exactly be a mainstream product. The key to running a successful company for a long time is, of course, the people. As Bytro is currently hiring, we spoke to Felix Schröter, the interim Lead for Analytics and Monetization. He has had many different opportunities at Bytro and gave us deeper insights into the company and their current job openings.
