There are of course a lot more games coming in 2015 that are awesome, but these are just the ones that stand out the most to me. Continue Reading
Today we released some updates to user Profile pages on Groupees including our version of The Wall where you can represent yourself and share your love of games, music, video and other media.
In the weeks ahead, we’ll be adding lots of new interactive widgets to user Walls including an in-system Trading capability.
We’ve also added Filters on the Profile game listings so you can easily sort your Groupees purchases and locate Unused Keys. Click on your name upper right on Groupees.com and check out all the shiny new stuff!
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.
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.
I hope that everyone is preparing for a wonderful holiday season. On our end, we are quite busy putting together some holiday bundles of joy for everyone while also continuing to work diligently on new platform features. Here’s a quick update on the dev front. We will be rolling out some new features, likely next week, including the first iteration of the Groupees Wall.

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.
