Gun Monkeys [No Strings Attached] Giveaway
ATTENTION EVERYONE: UPDATED 06-18-2014

As a courtesy i wanted to remind everyone that this initiative is no longer in effect. Thank you for your interest in the game.

Special Thank you shout out to:
Danthat & TimeGentleman for helping trying to support the initiative

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A message from Danthat

"As part of ongoing efforts to keep indie Deathmatch shooter “Gun Monkeys” the success it almost definitely deserves to be, the game now automatically generates free Steam keys for anyone struggling to find a game on the server, so they can play against their friends instead."

“It’s a unique solution to a frustrating situation”, typed Size Five Games’ Dan Marshall. “Despite universally positive reviews, Gun Monkeys just hasn’t sold enough to keep servers perpetually-buzzing with players. It’s infuriating, but the important thing to do now is to make sure the people who have bought the game can enjoy it as intended.”

As of the most recent update, if you’re sitting on an empty server for a few minutes, and no one comes along to play against, the game will now fling you a free Steam key for you to gift to a chum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is the part where i come in. I understand there are people out there that will seize a opportunity like this to benefit themselves. To those people i have nothing against you. Honestly it is what it is.

I also know there is a group of people that may get these keys and would genuinely like to give them out to someone who will play this game to keep the community of active players growing.

This discussion is catered towards the second group of people who are looking to give the extra keys to someone genuinely interested in playing the game. I am one of these people and i know there are others out there. I have created a process to allow those of you to donate a key to steam users that would be interested in giving this a go. I have also designed it to be transparent so that you can track where your keys go.

Lets use this thread to help those of you guys that want to give a key away with no strings attached to people that want to play the game. If anyone else is interested please follow the instructions on the form to either participate as a person who is donating a key or jumping in line to receive a key [First Come - First Serve while supplies last] or as long as people are donating keys.

I look forward to being able to support this game and providing a outlet for helping these keys find a happy home.

Great! Hopefully the recipients will in turn donate their own generated keys, to keep things rolling forward!
Dick Dastardly Sep 6, 2013 @ 4:24pm 
That is the hope Inky. Just trying to do something productive to help the community and the game devs out. I wish i knew what Danthat thought about this.

I've stickied this. Delighted to see people independently organising this kind of thing (rather than leaving it to/ expecting it of the dev), and trying to get more players involved. Thanks for your support :)

If there's anything I can do to help though, just ask.

Thank you, it's a shame that even with all the keys there are not much giveaways.

Yeah it is surprising. We are now up to 33 people on the waiting list for someone to start donating. But it is cool that we have that many people actually interested in the game.

@danthat Its a pleasure to help as I really enjoy organizing these type of events so long as life schedules permit. It is really great to see so many people participating and taking a interest in your game. I believe in transparency when i do something like this so If you are interested in seeing more about how this was organized just reach out to me via steam and i would be happy to give you a little more visibility or even control on this.

Please let me know if there is anything else that i can do to help you also. No Strings Attached.

Game On!

Still looking for some support from the community. I am disappointed to report that despite the really positive feedback about this initiative there has yet to be any participation of donating giveaway keys.

If anyone out there has received extra keys and are still looking to give them away please help out as there are about 40+ people that are currently excited to take part and play this game.

If you are interested in this game there is still room to be added to the waiting list. Just follow the above steps.

Take Care & Game On!

I just donated a key! I hope whoever it goes to (will that be you DD? Looks like you're top of the list) will pay it forward, and also that they'll become part of the community and help populate/promote the game!

Great! If the one who have the key give it to another one it could lead to a chain and everybody would have a key! :)

I just received the key. Thank you for the submission. That was my hope to be able to start generating keys to then donate them out and hope the same thing starts to happen with others once they receive their keys. Thank you for donating the first key TimeGentleman!
