Humble Bundle With 30 Games Helps Indie Dev Cancer Survivor

Brandon Boyer Cancer Treatment Relief

The Humble Bundle of Love for Brandon Boyer features over thirty indie games, but bringing attention to some wonderful and underrated titles is not the purpose of this bunch. Instead, this special Humble Bundle directly aids indie game developer and Chairman of the Independent Games Festival, Brandon Boyer.

Brandon took ill last year and was diagnosed with cancer during a doctor’s visit. He survived the ordeal despite losing part of his small intestine and liver, but his struggles continued financially when his insurance coverage denied his claim based on the pre-existing condition of  “having a stomachache in the past five years.”

He launched a crowdfunding campaign called the Brandon Boyer Cancer Treatment Relief to help him recover from the financial burden his surgery caused him, and indie developers around the world want to help pitch in to aid him for all the help he has given them. $25 will be the minimum price for this special bundle which includes some real “A-listers” from the indie scene, like VVVVV, World of Goo, Thomas Was Alone, Wizorb, and Proteus. Check out the whole list below.
