We’ve identified eight recent video games with links to type 1 diabetes. In Super Meat Boy and Super Meat Boy Forever, you’ll face an enemy named the Betus, inspired by creator Tommy Refenes’s experiences with T1D. In We Happy Few, you’ll play as Ollie, a character whose blood sugar levels must be kept in range as part of the stealth gameplay. The creative director of The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners and the creator of Saturday Morning RPG live with T1D, and people who worked on Sam & Max Save the World, Stories Untold, and Observation are T1D parents.
Through May 18, content creators with personal connections to T1D will take over our Twitch channel to stream games from the bundle and share their experiences with the disease. View the schedule here.
Buy the Game Over, T1D Bundle to Support Type 1 Diabetes Research
HumbleBundle.com is a website that sells bundles of games, software, and eBooks for “pay what you want” pricing, with a cut going to charity. Since 2010 they’ve donated more than $200M, including over $1M to JDRF.
The Game Over, T1D Bundle includes the eight games mentioned above, as well as four others donated by allies in the game industry (RAD, Pine, Bartlow’s Dread Machine, and Gauntlet™ Slayer Edition). At full price, these twelve games would cost around $250, but through May 18 you can get them for just $12—or more, if you’re feeling generous! The more you pay, the bigger the donation JDRF will get. Visit the bundle page.
