Continuing with the spirit of the original Bundle in a Box, Groupees will award an Indie Grant based on charity contributions made by purchasers in each Bundle in a Box. The Indie Grant is designed to help indie game developers create their games. One indie developer (be it a group or an individual), voted by the Groupees Community, will receive the full amount raised from the bundle. Indie devs may apply for an Indie Grant by submitting their projects to firstname.lastname@example.org. Voting periods will last for 7 days.
Below are the five contenders for this month’s Indie Grant of $927. You can only vote once, so make it count!
Developer: Blauwprint Games
|A terrible disaster is about to happen and you’re the only one who can warn humanity. They ignore you though, because they’re all too busy checking in their +1s and subscribing to their tweets. Your only choice is to relieve them of the terrible stress of tweeting all their food before it’s even digested, and make them aware of the dangers they’re facing. Run through the mall, evacuate phone-relieved people to the safe haven that is your cardboard box, and dodge the ignorant cops who are probably only attempting to stop you because they’re in on it.|
