¡¡¡¡After receiving an absolute outpouring of responses from the internet, Itch.io has finally released its latest indie game bundle, consisting of 1,020 games by 865 creators. What started as a simple call to developers to add games to a Palestinian food/medical relief bundle soon grew into the behemoth we are presented with now.

¡¡¡¡All of the money is being donated to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, which provides ¡°food assistance for over one million Palestinians, and continues to do so in the territories with heavy destruction¡± and ¡°emergency mental and physical health protection for those in the region,¡± according to the Itch.io forum post.

¡¡¡¡The headliner title for this bundle encapsulates the horror of the situation in Palestine, titled Liyla and The Shadows Of War. Created by Rasheed Abueideh, a Palestinian, the game is based on true and devastating events that occur in Gaza due to the war with Israel. This is definitely first on my to-play list in the bundle.

¡¡¡¡As for other games I¡¯m looking forward to playing, I noticed Calico and?Cook, Serve, Delicious 2 are on the list and both have been in my sights for a while. There¡¯s also a SUPERHOT and Baba is You crossover game called SUPER IS HOT that absolutely has my attention.

¡¡¡¡Some recognizably big names are Minit, Nuclear Throne, Signs of the Soujourner, Anodyne, and Orwell. Want some hidden gems? Play Sandstorm, And All Would Cry Beware!, Fit for a King, and ART SQOOL.?For more suggestions from someone who isn¡¯t me, check out Colin Spacetwinks or Dominic Tarason¡®s suggestions on Twitter.

¡¡¡¡Considering the bundle is only a five-dollar minimum, there is no good reason to pass this up! The bundle will run until June 11, so get buying!

¡¡¡¡SIX-time Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) Most Valuable Player (MVP) June Mar Fajardo admitted falling into depression after suffering a complete fracture on his right tibia during a San Miguel Beermen practice in February last year.

¡¡¡¡Fajardo said he was so depressed a few months after his surgery that it came to a point where he couldn’t sleep well at night.

¡¡¡¡”The first four, five months after my injury, I was really depressed,” said the 6’10” Fajardo in Filipino during the 2OT podcast on Friday.

¡¡¡¡”I had no one to talk to, as in. That’s perhaps my lowest point. You know that feeling when you’re in your room, and you can’t sleep? And you feel the pain of the injury since it’s still fresh. I had no one to talk to [really]. I talk with my parents, but not so often because I know they worry about me,” added Fajardo.

¡¡¡¡In order to alleviate his mental suffering, Fajardo turned to playing and streaming online games on social media.

¡¡¡¡In April last year, Fajardo created his AHOS (meaning garlic in Visayan) gaming channel on Facebook, and fans interacted with him right away. He started to feel better and is now actually “feeling good” about himself.

¡¡¡¡Simply put, playing and streaming online games such as Call of Duty, Dota 2 and Mobile Legends saved Fajardo from depression.

¡¡¡¡”I told myself that I need to talk to someone. And so, I thought of creating a Facebook channel and stream my games even without a camera just so [that] I can have an interaction with others,” said the eight-time PBA champion and six-time MVP.

¡¡¡¡”Online games saved me. Streaming my games was a huge help for me. I thank everyone who follows my stream despite the fact that I’m not actually good. But they still support and talk to me, and that’s huge for me. They don’t know they’re helping me through that,” revealed Fajardo.

¡¡¡¡He admitted that he doesn’t have other hobbies. He hasn’t had a night life either. So, gaming was his way of fighting boredom and depression while recuperating from a serious injury.

¡¡¡¡”If other people travel to other places to unwind, it’s online games for me. Whenever I’m sad or happy, I play online games. That’s what I do. I don’t have any hobbies and a night life either. I also don’t travel to other places for a vacation. So, online games are really my thing. I got the time passing by through it. It’s huge for me. It’s what helps me,” continued Fajardo.

¡¡¡¡When asked about his game shape, “The Kraken” shared that he started training with the Beermen on May 21, and even if he was free from pain from his injury, he was still groping for basketball form, following a 15-month layoff. He said he was still hesitant to make some on-court moves for fear of hurting himself again.

¡¡¡¡Nonetheless, the 31-year-old Cebuano has vowed to do his best to return to his old MVP form.

¡¡¡¡”Honestly, I’m still uncomfortable mentally up to now. There are moves that I’m hesitant on doing. When it comes to my conditioning, so far, so good,” said Fajardo with fingers crossed.

¡¡¡¡”I’m always grateful [to] God because he gave me another chance to play basketball. What happened to me was horrific. I’ll try my best to return to my old form or even eclipse my level of play before,” swore Fajardo.
