Independent Games Festival chairman raising funds for cancer expenses

Donate directly, or pick up the latest Humble Bundle

Independent Games Festival chairman Brandon Boyer has helped make many wonderful indie games find their way into your hands. Now Brandon could use your help.

He fought off cancer last year, but his health insurance company Humana denied his claims and he was left with over $100,000 in medical expenses to deal with. Brandon took to crowd funding site GoFundMe (where you can read the full details of Humana's blood boiling reasons for denying the claim) to raise the funds for his medical bills, and he's pretty close to reaching his target goal.

You can donate directly, or you can also go the route of the latest Humble Bundle from Devolver Digital. The bundle will last until March 16, and includes a mix of games and movies from the Devolver brand. You can pay what you want as always, but paying over $10 will unlock the full bundle. The games include Cosmic DJ, Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition, Shadow Warrior Classic Redux, Marc Ecko's Getting UP, and Defense Technica. The movies are Good Game, Austin High, The Poisoning, One Couch at a Time, and Mars.

Proceeds from the Devolver Double Debut bundle will go towards Brandon's cancer funds, and The Film Collaborative.
