Be Mine Subscriptions

Concerns have been raised about status of the Be Mine subscription. On our end, nothing has changed and we intend to fulfill the commitment as originally stated. Summer is slow and we don’t want to push out bundles and call them Be Mine if they don’t meet our standards. The next Be Mine will be released soon, possibly this coming week (+Jonny art). If we are unable to meet the 10 bundle commitment within the year, we will extend the timeline so that the full commitment is met though we don’t expect that will be necessary. We apologize for making you uneasy and thank you for your continued support.

Chat/Community + New Dev Updates

I hope that everyone’s new year is off to a great start. Ours is certainly quite busy!

I first wanted to address a concern that many users have brought to our attention. Behavior in chat seems to have taken a turn for the worse with certain users seemingly only wanting to disrupt and disturb others, either out of spite or perhaps some perverted need for attention. While we are big believers in free speech, we also recognize that what makes Groupees a unique place to visit is our social layer, particularly group chat. With this in mind, we will not sit idly and let a few bad apples ruin Groupees for everyone else.

“Thanksgiving” Dev Update–NEW STUFF

First of all, I want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving, including those who live outside the US and may only know of our tradition from the vantage of curiosity. It is absolutely my favorite holiday as the whole focus is giving thanks for what we have and what we share together. In that spirit, I wish to thank each and everyone of you. I know that I may sound like a broken record, but the reason I’m committed to Groupees is I value what all of you bring to our community. Without your involvement and contributions, we are really just another site selling things for cheap.

Dev Update for September

I do apologize for the delay in posting any updates on the dev front but it was a busy Summer + I wanted to wait until Trading Coins were implemented which I’m happy to announce indeed was recently accomplished.

If you happened to purchase Be Mine 14 and didn’t already notice, you will now see a Coins tab on your Purchases Page with your coins listed. Be Mine 14 purchasers received either the $3 Jonny Antimatter Coin or the $1 Slug Plutonium Coin. These coins were special as they increase in value as the total number of coins in circulation decrease. For instance, the value of the $3 Jonny Antimatter Coins has already increased to over $4.

TyranoBuilder Visual Novel Studio and the Groupees: The Visual Novel

The TyranoBuilder Visual Novel Studio is a fantastic app. Intuitive UX, easy-to-use yet robust feature set and controls make creating your own Visual Novel a breeze and lots of fun! If you haven’t seen this wonderful game creation tool on Steam, by all means check it out:  BUY ON STEAM  At $14.99, this app is a steal, and I would strongly endorse it even if it were three times the price.

April 2015 Dev Update

My apologies for the gap in providing some updates on the development side of Groupees. Ideally, I would like to do this every other month so I will do my best to keep to that cycle.

As I’m sure most of you can imagine, there’s lots of work that’s done behind the scenes and beneath the surface. Lot of non-glamorous but necessary stuff to keep things running well and make the experience generally a positive one on Groupees. Changes in APIs, new payment methods, bug fixes and the like keep our small team very busy.

Gifting and Trading on Groupees

Unused keys are really lost opportunities for everyone. For developers, one of the main reasons to participate in a bundle is to create exposure, to put the game in the hands of gamers who might not otherwise find the game or buy it at retail. The hope is that some, perchance many, will actually play the game, like it, post reviews, tell friends, generally spread the word, which ultimately provides a promotional boost for the game and the developer, something particularly important for indies.

And, no doubt, not every game appeals to every gamer, though conversely, most every game will have an appeal to some gamers. Keys that were included in a bundle that are left idle represent the opportunity for joy unrealized by some gamer.
