In addition to Steam and mobile platforms, links to the web storefronts of additional platforms would be helpful.31 votes
Update on this, we identified one possible issue which is that unlike PC stores, most console links are region specific.
So we’re investigating how we could either generalised them or whether we’d introduce this when we tackle localization of IGDB.
Few companies maintain the same name forever. Some rename, merge, are bought out, or generally acquired. It would be helpful to manage the progression of various devs and publishers with a timeline progression and/or a tree of ownership.
1) Squaresoft > Square > Square and Enix merge > SquareEnix
2) Namco and Bandai merge > Namco Bandai > Bandai Namco Games
3) Activision and Blizzard Merge > Create holding company called Activision Blizzard that owns the two companies Activision and Blizzard.22 votes
We are looking at redoing our company data taxonomy, part of which is possibly adding several ‘layers’ to companies, such as Divisions for example.
Companies are a bit lacking at the moment as we historically have been focusing on Games, but we gradually intend to start giving them more love :)

I'm not an advocate for the platform, but I feel if Sega CD and 32X addons are their own platforms, this should probably be one as well, even for as short lived as it was.4 votes
When you click on the personalize button on the home page, there is no Playstation 5 or Xbox Series XS options there. It should be there?3 votes
Hey! Yes that is absolutely correct the new gen platform should be there.
We’ll take a look into that, thank you for pointing it out!
I wasn't sure what to use for this and I think that's the point. Puzzle titles like Tetris, Pong, Breakout, and the like are very hard to define in terms of a Theme based on the choices available.
An Abstract Theme might be the best case in these situations.3 votes
Good input! We’ll take a look if this is a good fit, thanks!

Can't receive updated data for this game through the API.2 votes
Heya! We’re currently doing large changes around the consistency of data between our site and API. These out of sync issues should be resolved very soon, and we will be going back to look at individual cases such as these games afterwards if there are still edge cases.
If you spot any more feel free to add them in the comments as it could be helpful.
Thanks a lot and apologies for any inconvenience in the meantime!

Hey! thanks for pointing it out. It seems to be due to a bug rather than a false release mind you. We’re taking a look!
