Gun Monkeys Generates Free Steam Keys

Size Five Games announces an innovative solution to the problem of needing opponents to enjoy Gun Monkeys, their procedurally generated deathmatch platforming shooter. "It's a unique solution to a frustrating situation", says 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." The game is already sold on Steam as a two-for-one deal, giving you a key to give to a friend, but now waiting too long for a game can generate additional keys to hand out. Here's word:

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.

“The most frequent comment in my inbox ant the moment is ‘this game is amazing, why aren’t more people playing it?’ Well, hopefully this move will bring in new interested players too, since they’ll always be able to play friends when servers are quiet.”

"Free keys are limited per player, and it won't generate free copies for ever, but for now it's a fun and unusual way to combat the Curse of the Indie Multiplayer Game. Let's see how it goes."
