Just found this thread googling for better ways to navigate 1700+ games as their current solution is rather disappointing. One of their developers suggested when their servers cool off they may add a button to see all the games in your library later on, but in the mean time it's pretty solidly in the land of greatly inconvenient to say the least. :)

I hoped there would be a Galaxy itch.io plugin that was decent, but it seems to be the only platform there isn't good integrated support available for yet.

Guess we have to just party like it's 1999 for now and hope for a better solution from Itch and some Galaxy integration in the future.
There are itch.io integrations, which are listed on the Awesome GOG Galaxy page. For whatever reason, I cannot post links, but the one I'm using is by Ertego and is called gog-galaxy-itch.io. I've tested it and it works fine for browsing games in your library and launching them.

After you unzip it, you can launch or relaunch GOG Galaxy and go to Connect Platforms like with other integrations to connect your itch.io account. Note, that this currently only shows installed games, so if you're wanting to use this to browse the 1700+ games from the Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality, you'll have to download the games first. itch doesn't add these games to your library until you install them anyway, so it's likely that no integration will help you with finding and installing the games the first time.

timewraith: For whatever reason, I cannot post links
It's part of the method that GOG uses to prevent bot accounts from posting links in spam posts on the forum. You have to have your rep above a certain number. The FAQ says a minimum of 7 for reputation will allow links, though I've heard others say 5 and 10.

mbeemer: Apparently you also have to have the itch launcher installed.
This is sort of against the entire idea of having a unified launcher. I don't want to install yet another friggin launcher that I'm not going to use. I've got like 4 of them already. The entire industry is going down the same shithole that the streaming industry is and that leads me to dig out my crossbones hat and eyepatch and dust them off.

I'll recant on that. I've been trying things out and I think I'm on a different itch plug in and I may have been mistaken on that in the first place.

+1 to this, Itch is a valuable source and should be integrated.

greatmain: Given how many people must have bought the =Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality, I think it's a great opportunity for Galaxy launcher to work on a better integration. 1705 games are included in the bundle.

It'd be convenient if these games could be browsed from within the launcher. Regardless of whether or not they are added to the itch.io library by browsing the download page. Maybe this would require some development from the mainline devs also so bundles can be browsed individually instead of all the games of a bundle showing up in the library. If the user chooses to that is.
yeah.. but I am pretty sure, that the main issue is with itch.io's API rather. if it was PROPER - integration would already have been created. +their shitty handling of this bundle (UI-wise) is whole another story.
which in the end is really sad / ironic, considering that they are targeted towards *developers*.
