A cool alternative to Hogwarts heritage
Maybe you’re feeling FOMO because of the skipping Hogwarts legacy. Or you’ve already bought the game and now you can’t look a trans person in the eye anymore. Maybe you’re just a gamer goth who likes magic themed games. Did I get you the itch.io bundle?
Trans witches are witches is a collection of magic themed games, zines and music from LGBTQ creators. For the same amount you could have spent Hogwarts legacyyou can buy 69 items (heh) made by independent queer artists.
JK Rowling’s ownership of the Harry Potter IP caused legacy‘s starting to become one battlefield above whether trans people deserve human rights or not. And that’s just one reason why a lot of people don’t want to buy the game. Gaming website Kritiqal (which curated the bundle) cites their issues with the transphobia from Harry Potter‘s author, of the game anti-Semitism casting the money-obsessed goblins (commonly referred to as a Jewish race cartoon) than his villains and the right views from legacy‘s former senior designer.
Instead of the money going to a single transphobic millionaire, proceeds from this bundle will be split equally among all contributors. So your purchase will likely fund normal things like rent and food rather than Traveling to anti-transgender protest rallies.
24 of these games are digital, while 41 titles are physical tabletop games. magic trick allows you to skateboard as an adorable witch. Tarot: Theo’s Quest is a pixel-based JRPG where you collect tarot cards. throw hearts is a funny dating sim about fear. The package even includes you are a magiciana magical platformer created by the main developer of the critical celebrated Extreme meatpunks forever.
