  1. Simple as. While they should adhere to guidelines, users should be able to opt for which box art they prefer on IGDB. Doing so would not only be preferable for some who prefer some art over another, but would also fleshen out the Database by letting users see which artwork corresponds to which region.

    Heya!

    There’s absolutely a need for multiple covers as a data point, we hear you :) Let’s clarify what this could mean in the near future:

    One thing that we are currently looking at is expanding data for Localization, and covers are an obvious fit for this. However it’s worth pointing that Localized cover and additional cover might not mean the same thing. For example offering the Japanese specific cover doesn’t mean having multiple variant for it (different artworks, logo style, dimensions etc..).

    We will start with Localization, which will help provide API users more options for their own communities. And as a second step from there we would begin looking at how to offer multiple variant of a single regional cover so that users may pick & choose.

    Hope this helps!

  2. Add new category.

    Called "AOFrost" since it is an independent development of another game, called "Argentum Online" that already has its category.

    We have brand logo and website
    .
    Sorry for my bad English, do you have Spanish support?

  3. A new game type "Expanded Bundle. I have run into a couple of situations now where a game bundles a couple of older games within it's new release. Right now they usually sit as a main game, since the new content falls under a new game, but adding this would allow us to link the bundled games additionally to reduce confusion.

  4. I think the "Want" and "Playing" options are good as they can get, but when it comes to "Played", I think it should be more than that.
    * There are games that I've beaten and/or completed
    * There are games that I started to play, but then I stopped playing and won't get back
    * There are games that I started to play, and took a break from, but I'm planning to get back to them eventually

    I don't know the best way to present these buttons on the game pages. For example, when you click the "Played" button, then…

  5. There's already a request for logos and I would like to add this request for icons, like the ones used for the game shortcuts.
    It is common for computer games to have them, and some other platforms have icons of the games in some places (like on the memory card management system).

  7. 6% of males and ~0.4% females have color blindness. A good number of games feature a colorblind mode (Forza 5 for instance). Many don't and have nearly unplayable sections as a result.
    When I'm looking for a game, one of my greatest concerns is with color-coded information. If it exists, I need to see it in action, and if it's red-green or any other combination that is a problem, I need to know if I can change it. If I can't change it, I'll usually pass.

    Some examples:
    RTSs sometimes use red and green icons on minimaps - literally any…

    Hello!


    This is a great suggestion thank you! Actually the timing couldn't be more ideal, as we are in fact investigating how we could tackle accessibility data in games, which would cover Colour Blindness of course. 


    This might be a long process (no ETA unfortunately), but something we are very interested in indeed :) 


    Thank you!




  8. The remake of work, Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer (IGDB ID: 78341, NDS Shiren) appears on Twitch, but the original, Fushigi no Dungeon 2: Furai no Shiren (IGDB ID: 103496, original Shiren), is registered with IGDB but does not appear on Twitch. NDS Shiren is not just a port, it's a completely new remake, and there's no way original Shiren can be broadcast under the NDS Shiren category.
    Twitch shows other remakes, but why doesn't it show Shiren? The reason may be that it's considered an alternative to other games, as shown on the following page.

  9. Just like we have websites like Wikipedia and Wikia, Google Arts and Culture also have info pertaining to games.

    Example: https://artsandculture.google.com/asset/video-game-super-nintendo-super-mario-world-nintendo/aQG4PR61zCQHRA?hl=en&avm=4

  10. Hi,

    I'm having issues with the APIs Pagination features. When making the following call the last item on the list of games is 'Pokemon Silver':

    request search "Pokemon";f id,name,cover.image_id,aggregated_rating,aggregated_rating_count,first_release_date,summary;l 20;w version_parent = null&category = 0;

    I then make this second call to get the second page of items, which returns 'Pokemon Silver' as the first result:

    search "Pokemon";f id,name,cover.image_id,aggregated_rating,aggregated_rating_count,first_release_date,summary;l 20;o 20;w version_parent = null&category = 0;

    At first I thought this was an issue with the offset, but if I search for another term it works okay. Any ideas what may be causing this?

  11. ELSPA was the rating system used in EU before the PEGI system replaced it.

  12. Currently, IGDB provides all the current CERO age ratings [A, B, C, D, Z], but not the pre-March of 2006 ratings [ALL, 12, 15, 18], which the organization still considers.

  13. This could allow to link to itch games using their itch id and would make easier the process to find games by store.

    I know it can (somewhat) be achieved using the websites categories. It is a bit more tedious, less consistent and probably way slower !

    Thanks,
    atn

  14. Why have you changed the way you sort games in custom lists?
    I have several lists with 200-400 games and sorting out new additions now is a nightmare.
    I'm sorry but among the many things that need to be improved you have made one worse...

    Hey! This update was merely one step in a series of improvements we are planning. We acknowledge currently it isn't ideal, but we are planning several new fixes soon. 


    Stay tuned!

  15. While this may need a bit of oversight, there are some extremely good examples of documentaries or historical breakdowns of game releases and/or even controversies. These are topics that are not generally covered in the official trailers or dev logs, or even gameplay videos. These videos can lay out a history of why some titles are cancelled, or overhauled, or have a troubled history outside of the game itself.

    Examples:

  16. If you make a version, or port of the game, the majortiy of things like categorization, series, cover are likely to be the same. It actually deters people from creating new versions by not providing a function like this as a template

  17. I often omit the endings of titles from the Storyline section to prevent posting spoilers, but I realize I'm not everyone. Generally I feel if people are just looking for more info on the game, why play it if you already know how it's going to turn out?

    I'd love to see a section you could add or highlight sections of a plot in Storyline that might be best hiddened for new users, rather than a full block of the field.

  18. I would like to get suggestions based on what my friends are currently playing. Just a section that says what my friends are playing, not the whole discover thing.

  19. I'm not personally a fan of these titles, but I feel it would be helpful if we had a more high level flag for these entries. I feel this would have several benefits over a simple keyword, such as filtering search if you want to include or omit these titles, or on the Twitch side that would serve as an instant highlight in the categories that would appear next to the game itself.
