[Can't find a game on the servers?] read this!
UPDATE: the game is now CHEAP and 2-for-1. You should have a friend to play against! I'm reoving this offer for the time being, in the hopes that the problem is now PERMA-FIXED

I'm also hoping this puts a stop to 11 year olds emailing me badly-photoshopped pictures of their Steam accounts saying "GIVE ME GAEM NOW" in the hopes of blagging a free copy


original offer
I'm all too aware it's quite hard to swan into a server and get a game at the moment. It's odd, because Gun Monkeys is actually selling well and people seem to be enjoying it, but I guess the ratio of "Copies Sold : People Hanging Out On The Server At Any One Time" is just even more massive than I'd anticipated.

I'm hoping there'll be an influx of players soon, thanks to some press, a new trailer, and a couple of promotions, but in the meantime if you're frustrated because you can't get a game, email me a screengrab of your Steam account showing you've bought the game, and I'll gladly gift you a couple of keys so you can play with friends instead. Just until the ball starts rolling.

Should point out this offer won't last forever, obv. :)

I shot you an e-mail: Thanks a ton! I'm sure this will help get it more attention as these online games spread like wildfire within a group of friends!

Well I sent an email. Then I realized this post was almost 2 weeks old. However, I'm still struggling to find people to play online, and I imagine if you were no longer doing this you would have either deleted this topic or said something right? :P

Yep, I'm still happy to hand out keys to people who are struggling to find a game :)

It's really sad to see servers so empty, i logged in for the first time today and found 1 dude on, we played 2 games and then he quit. Atleast i got to see how fun the game is i guess :)

I was actually surprised it's not more popular. I saw the game got good reviews in general and this has helped indie games in the past, look at sword of the stars the pit for example.

I think releasing before the Steam Sale might have been an error. As was releasing without doing months of ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ hype.

There are a few things incoming, but for now the best thing people can do to help keep the player numbers up is just to *tell everyone* about the game, don't close this window down and forget the problem. Rave about the game on Reddit or in forums or wherever's suitable.

And yeah, if you want a key to play someone else, please do still email me.

I have already emailed you but is it the full game forever for my friends a short time like a week?
danthat  [developer] Jul 23, 2013 @ 7:52am 
Forever :)

Nice one :)

Thanks for the keys :)

So basically I can only play with my friend that I gifted the game to? Sticky this topic please

You can play with anyone on the servers. The servers have been pleasingly full since the price drop :)
