Want to get twelve PC games for less than £10 and fight type 1 diabetes into the bargain? Humble Bundles’ “Game Over T1D” is for you.
The bundle supports the JDRF who, in their own words are “.. funding research, advocating for policies that accelerate access to new therapies, and providing a support network for millions of people around the world impacted by T1D.
The games included in the bundle, which currently has a minimum donation of £9.19 are The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners,We Happy Few, Sam & Max Save the World, Observation, Super Meat Boy Forever, Pine, Bartlow’s Dread Machine, Gauntlet™ Slayer Edition, Stories Untold, RAD and Super Meat Boy.
There are some real gems in there; The Waking Dead: Saints & Sinners is a superb VR zombie game, though it does require a Steam VR compatible headset. Observation is a superb sci-fi title which casts you as a space station’s AI and Sam & Max Save the World is an excellent point-and-click with adventure gaming’s most famous furry duo.
We Happy Few is also worth experiencing, especially if you dial down the survival mechanics, though we maintain it should always have been a linear, narrative-driven game. Gauntlet: Slayer Edition is also a fun outing in multiplayer, especially worth a look if you’ve got fond memories of the original.
Pick up our latest game bundle & help @JDRF cure type 1 diabetes (T1D)!

You can, of course, pay more than £9.19 and you can also determine, to an extent, what portion goes to the publishers, JDRF, and Humble Bundle themselves. You can’t donate less than £3.22 to the JDRF, which makes sense as the bundle is there to support them. However, the “Adjust Donation” slider is set so at least £1.38 goes to Humble Bundle themselves, with no option to exclude Humble entirely.
The games haven’t been picked at random; several of the creators behind these games have been affected by type 1 diabetes, either directly or indirectly. You can pick up the bundle from Humble Bundle’s Game Over, T1D page and find out more about the JDRF from their website.
