No Man is an Island… Our Groupees Kids!

I’m a big fan of Hemingway. I enjoy his spare but keenly observant writing style. It is evocative and very moving to me. And his themes and stories are big, like the man himself. I will always remember the first page of For Whom the Bell Tolls, the prologue, a poem by John Donne from which the title derives:

“No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend’s or of thine own were: any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.”

Support Groupees Game Project: Cyber-Chicken

Some folks connected with Groupees are working on a video game in our spare time. A true indie game project with contributors sprinkled around the globe, Cyber-Chicken is a 2.5D side-scrolling, rollicking adventure featuring 8′, 375 pounds of cybernetic poultry as a futuristic killing machine on a quixotic mission to save the World from itself. A satirical romp across pop culture and modern life, the comic-book styled game features weapon-based gameplay, platforming elements and lock/key puzzles in a metrovania-designed World. If you get a chance, swing by the Greenlight page where you can download a prototype of the game and support the Greenlight campaign.

Community and Chat Powers

We rolled out some new stuff this week, including a new home page and Chat Powers, the latter of which most of you certainly noticed. The feature has prompted lots of comments, some good, some bad, but rest assured we are listening. For my part, I wanted to explain a few things. First, we’ve introduced Status levels based on the number of $ spent on Groupees. For now, there are 3 levels, Newbie, Fanboy and Playa. Chat Powers start at the Fanboy level which is reached at $20 in spend. We’ll be expanding this concept and adding a few more status levels. This is both to reward our most loyal customers but also to create some gamification across the community.

Why Give Back

Give back because people are fundamentally good, decent and caring. Give back because by doing so you spread joy and make a difference in people’s lives. We give back because in giving we receive so much more. We believe in the members of this community we’ve created and wish to thank them for their ongoing support. Together, we’ve made Groupees a very special place. Let’s continue to give back to the World in which we live.

Your friend,

Jonny
