Humble Launches Bundle Featuring Hollow Knight and Other Popular Games in Support of Australia Fire Relief

29 games for a minimum donation of $25.

As rain storms sweep over parts of Australia left smouldering due to devastating wildfires, another collection of video game developers is stepping up to raise money for relief efforts. The Humble Store has launched an Australia Fire Relief Bundle, featuring 29 games for a minimum donation of $25.

Included in the Fire Relief Bundle are popular titles like Hollow Knight, Void Bastards, Armello, and Euro Truck Simulator 2. Some of the included titles, like Paperbark and The Haunted Island, a Frog Detective Game, come from developers based in Australia.

"In the wake of the country's worst fire season on record, we humbly recognize our responsibility to the global community," reads a statement on the Humble website. "Alongside developers and creators, we are bundling a care package of much-needed funds for relief to those affected."

The Fire Relief Bundle joins donations from Universim developers Crytivo, Ubisoft, Bungie, and more in recent weeks as the Australian bushfires have gained international attention. Since the start of the unusually hot and dry fire season in September 2019, 26 million acres have burned, resulting in the destruction of thousands of homes and the deaths of at least 28 people. Australian ecology expert Chris Dickman also estimates that one billion animals have been killed in the fires.

All of the proceeds from the bundle will go to charity, split between three organizations engaged in wildfire relief: WIRES Australian Wildlife Rescue Organization, the Australian branch of the RSPCA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals), and the World Wildlife Fund.
