Fxck Cancer: a Humble campaign to honor the legacy of Mikael Nermark
To celebrate the life and legacy of father, husband, and former Starbreeze Studios head Mikael Nermark – friends, family, and colleagues across the game industry have rallied together with Humble to grant Mikael one final birthday wish. The result: an epic bundle of games dedicated to Mikael and everyone whose lives have been affected by cancer.
On November 16, 2021 Mikael Nermark would have turned 51. He was a 50-year old with a lot of life left to live. Unfortunately, cancer is something that affects many of us in one way or another and in this case, it has taken Mikael away from us far too early. From his passing it has become apparent just how many out there who knew and respected him. We are grateful for every word we’ve read about him in your memories. It’s been clear that Mikael’s presence made an impact, was felt and remembered from the first instance you met him.
With this in mind, we, friends & family, started a roll call during the autumn of 2021 be able to grant Mikael’s wish to, in a significant and meaningful way, make an impact for a charitable cause.
We are extremely grateful to the team at Humble Bundle who’s actively been supporting our request, in every step of the way, and who has gone above and beyond to secure Mikael’s preferred organisation for donations, The Swedish Cancer Society (Cancerfonden). The Swedish Cancer Society’s impact and reach is global through its work in research as well as in many other verticals.
The result of the Roll Call is now live, and in collaboration with more than 10 different game creators and publishers, Humble offers a bundle with 12 products where 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Cancerfonden.
The campaign will run between February 4 – February 18.
