Our biggest Youtuber event ever!

To help celebrate our two year anniversary, we teamed up with a team of great YouTube personalities and we’re also using this opportunity to raise money for charities. The charities are Unicef, Doctors without Borders, St. Jude, and Hearts for Healing. Every copy of the game we sell while we’re on sale will have a portion split between the charities based on their team’s wins.  The more wins a team has, the more of the sale earnings will be driven to their charity!

I spy matchmaking on the horizon.

Hello Everyone!

As matchmaking gets closer, we want to share everything we’ve learned working on it in the past six months, the monumental changes and shifts we’ve made due to the amazing ideas and feedback that’s been given to us, and what you guys should expect to see in your game very soon. You’ll find us live at 3 pm eastern at twitch.tv/gunsoficarus.

We’d love everyone to show up, supporters, detractors, and everyone in between, so you can hear what we want to put forth and we can get your feedback as we wrap up on some huge changes.

We’re more than happy to talk about everything from what led to this choice to some of the crazy steps we’ve taken along the way so bring your questions and an open mind.

Thank you again for everyone who came out to help us test at any point. Your efforts, critiques, and input made the system 100 times stronger than we could have ever imagined.
