About the bundle
A big deal landed recently on the indie game platform itch.io, the “Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality”.
It contains whopping 743 paid indie games at small cost (at the time of writing, more to come).
You can get the bundle here. (Note: No “referal” link or alike)
What is the issue?
When you buy the bundle the contents don’t get automatically added to your library, due itch.io’s recent change.
You might forget about the bundle and the games you payed for. Also unclaimed items don’t show up in your library in the desktop client or web dashboard. So it’s best to claim them.
2020-06-11: Note from itch team - they are totally aware of the situation. Please patiently wait and don’t ask, they are working on it. Thanks!
Note: We will be updating this page soon, we know it’s difficult to navigate so many games. We know you want a button to add show everything in your library. No need to reach out. Any new games added to the bundle will automatically show up here. Thanks!
- On your computer, open a browser (i.e. Firefox/Chrome), login at itchio
- Open the bundle page you got via email, which looks like this https://itch.io/bundle/download/sOmEKeYisHere?
- Open browser development tools and paste:
Now press enter on your keyboard, press up, press enter, press up … repeat till no game page opens up anymore.
This way you will claim all games on the current page, do this for all pages of the bundle.
Note that the best solution would be: Itch adds a “claim all” option, but all can be done is ask & wait for it. Whether they add “claim all” or not, the solution of this post works.
Otherwise you would need to click every single game yourself, go back, scroll down and find next, click again and again..
Automated claiming (Linux command line)
How to make it even more easy:
With shell command below you can automatically claim repeatedly without interaction.
As with everything you paste in developer tools and shells, know what you do and you are responsible for your own actions.
while [ 1 ] ; do sleep 2; xdotool key Up; sleep 0.1; xdotool key Return; done

Note that the game title always changes. As long that happens and you don’t stay on the bundle page, you claim games.
