Gun Monkeys has been given a price reduction by Size Five Games. According to an update on the studio’s website, the team has cut the price reluctantly in order to help draw in more players. Also coming along with a new price drop, people who buy the game on Steam will receive a second key to give to their friend. Size Five Games has gone this way purely to widen the audience of the game, which was already well received.
“It’s something I’m doing extremely reluctantly, because I don’t want to devalue the game,” said the firm’s Dan Marshall. “I 100% think it was worth $10. But I’ve come to the conclusion that the game’s multiplayer-only concept is a tough sell, so a pricing change is a necessary evil.
“It’s just not fair on the people who are playing and enjoying the game that they’re struggling to find people to play, so I’m doing everything in my power to remedy that. You really do have to sell HYPER-LOTS of copies in order for the servers to have anyone in them, triply so if you’re trying to get a game at 4am. This is a fact I now know that I didn’t really appreciate before.”
Gun Monkeys is now $5.99/£3.99/€4.49.
