Care For Hecuba
A downloadable collection
This game is pay-what-you-want, even though it doesn't use the itch PWYW functionality! You can pay the $6 price tag (or tip), or you can scroll down and claim a free copy.
These games are born from caring about helpless tragic characters. Hecuba, Medea, Semele, Medusa-- these are monstrous, vulnerable women whose function in the story is to gravitate toward an inevitable death. By playing these games you are caring for them, because Euripides and his contemporaries are dead and somebody needs to.
These games borrow tools and expectations from poetry, but they're all "playable". You might interact with them by just reading, or by asking a friend to play them with you, or changing them to be "playable" in a way you like, or by saying "Hmm!" and moving on.
However you do it, I invite you to give these games, and the heroines in them, life.
200% of the money made from this game (past, present, and future) will go to the Marsha P. Johnson institute, an organization led by and supporting trans Black folks. (Of course this supplements a recurring donation, rather than replaces one.) Black lives matter, unconditionally.

This game is pay-what-you-want! If you want the game but can't justify paying for it, take a free copy. You don't need a reason to do this.
If you don't want to pay, but your brain won't let you take a free copy, consider "paying" for it with a star rating, review, or thread.
