Boyer began a record label, KittyBoo Records, out of Denton, Texas in 1995. KittyBoo released 3 records: the debut 7" from Poopiehead, a Bunnygrunt / Tullycraft split 7", and the 7" soundtrack to J. Otto Seibold's Free Lunch children's book, with narration and instruments by singer, songwriter, Blue Man Group and They Might Be Giants collaborator and film-strip artist Brian Dewan.
Boyer was a contributor to both the print magazine and website of multi-format computer and video game magazine Edge from 2004 to 2006, and served as news editor for Gamasutra, an internationally recognized and Webby Award winning online community for video game developers which is owned and operated by Think Services (formerly CMP Media). In November 2008 he helped found Offworld, a video game blog owned by Boing Boing, where he served as editor through October 2009.
In 2011, Brandon Boyer successfully ran a Kickstarter-campaign for an Offworld-successor called Venus Patrol. In the Kickstarter, exclusive rewards of amongst others Keita Takahashi, Adam Saltsman, Vlambeer and Superbrothers were offered to prospective subscribers. Venus Patrol launched on September 10, 2012.
Boyer currently resides in Austin.
On March 2, 2014, a crowdfunding campaign was launched to help Boyer cover his health fees after he'd been diagnosed with cancer and denied insurance coverage by Humana (who used a pre-existing condition clause in his insurance contract to do so).
