London, UK – 19 th November 2012 – TeePee Games, is pleased to unveil details of its latest games venture gamesGRABR ( www.gamesgrabr.com), an innovative social network for gamers. gamesGRABR is a “pinboard-style” website and smartphone app specifically tailored for gaming culture, planned for launch Q1 2013, that will allow users to create, discover and manage game based collections.

Gamers will be able to create collections of their favourite games and products by GRABing games, images and videos from across the web using gamesGRABR’s unique GRABit button. The gamesGRABR smartphone application will include features such as the ability to use the camera as a barcode scanner, allowing gamers to scan boxed video-game products and upload them to their game collections on gamesGRABR, where their friends will be able to see, comment or buy the item with just one click.

gamesGRABR has been created to connect casual and hardcore gamers to everything they love about games in a social environment. Gamers will be able to follow, share, rate and play everything they GRAB and be part of the ultimate gaming community. They will also be able to browse game collections created by their friends or find and follow other gamers with similar gaming interests. GRABing provides users with access to reviews, blogs and merchandise, and will allow them to discover and play great games.

Thanks to established affiliate deals with games publishers and developers, gamesGRABR users will have instant access to thousands of games across mobile, online and Facebook from day one. Upcoming partnerships with online retailers will allow users to discover and buy console games, hardware, accessories and other gaming goods.

Tony Pearce, CEO of TeePee Games and GamesGRABR, comments; “ gamesGRABR aims to connect users with the same gaming interests and make it easier to find great games and gaming stuff. There are lots of online publications that discuss gamer culture, but none have enabled gamers to share, curate and discover new games and gaming products in one place.”  

gamesGRABR is due to launch in Q1 2013 and will be available online and as an Android and iOS app.  TeePee Games is currently inviting gamers to sign up for gamesGRABR at http://www.gamesgrabr.com/. Those who do sign up will be entered into a draw for a chance to win an iPad mini or Wii U games console.
