  1. These types of trailers are common for fighting games and even games like Overwatch had them back in the day.

    Hi! We think this is a great idea, and wouldn't be hard to do. It's indeed a good way to mark all those character trailers (there are a lot of them). We have put this in our backlog and will try to get to it as soon as possible. Thanks!

  2. Add information about if a game is on/included in a subscription service.

    Such as gamepass or stadia (included with the stadia sub)

    And if a removal date exists (as games will leave gamepass)

    Hey Barry!
    Yes absolutely this is planned. While External Games and External Websites are separate they are closely related and may tackle them together.

    For External Games this will be a big focus for us going forward.
    Stay tuned!

  4. Would allow users to import/export their lists from/to other services like Playnite and RAWG.

  5. Previously, I had been able to submit coverart for games on Twitch via a form located on the Twitch support website. This was a critical feature of Twitch to ensure that smaller and/or older games on the Twitch platform wouldn't be left with incorrect or generic artwork. However, as of late, my submissions of coverart via the form have gone unanswered, and the link to the form has been removed from Twitch's support site as well.

    For context, the form is located here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeHi3k8F8Vmu_uayd-ynHWh0fZ8O5FkAc3Smp4lJrj6r-I5eg/viewform

    And it was referenced on this support page: https://help.twitch.tv/s/article/adding-a-game-and-box-art-to-the-directory?language=en_US

    In the past, similar issues have occurred…

  7. Just a button on IGDB to go to a random game in the database. Maybe you can set a date frame or different filters to it but in general a button to show a random game would be awesome.

    Hey!

    This is a good suggestion thank you! This has been discussed a couple of times in the past. We can’t promise any ETA on such a feature but it would be interesting to investigate.

    Our main concerns so far would be what can be included is random: should it have filters, should it be games on all platforms or only selected ones, all age ratings etc..

    If you have more ideas or specifics that always helps, we’ll leave this ticket open meanwhile!
    Thank you!

  8. To build up our personal libraries on IGDB, we wouldn't have to manually search for and add each game. We could simply connect our IGDB accounts to our accounts on all of those services, and IGDB would automatically populate our libraries with the games that exist in our libraries on each of those retailers. Steam, for example, has a 'sign in with Steam' function that IGDB could implement, and we could use it to connect our IGDB accounts to our Steam accounts. Other game retailers have similar functions; that's how GOG Galaxy 2.0's integrations work.
    This way, in IGDB I'd…

  9. Allow a link to a theme song (or theme songs) for a game. For example a direct link to a song.

    download link: http://gamethemesongs.com/song/download/12052
    page link: http://gamethemesongs.com/Goldeneye_007_-_N64.html

    Heya! This could indeed be interesting, however there’s a lot of possible legal investigation to look into when it comes to music copyrights.

    In the short term it’s hard to say how we could approach this. Long term we of course would love to expand our data and game info with music, sounds like an obvious fit!

  10. Many companies exist on the site under two or more names, with a number of games attributed to each of the various forms of their name. A procedure to flag and combine these disparate developer and publisher listings under a single company name would allow this data to be cleaned up and made more useful.

  11. The popular category 'Games + Demo's' currently has missing cover art.

    I reached out to the IGDB team and they said "As these specific categories are directly handled by Twitch and generally handled internally, it would best be submitted to their UserVoice" with that being said, I would like to submit a piece of Cover Art for approval for the category.

    As I can't attach a photo, here are my two submissions (I prefer option 2):

    1) https://pbs.twimg.com/media/GBw7CcibkAA7a85?format=jpg&name=small (Alternative link: https://imgur.com/Fl9OeNW)

  12. When a entry is "deleted" in favor of a duplicate.

    Send a update for and update both entries.

    The old/dead entry, remove all data (consider the remove optional) and add a

    replaced_by: new_id

    entry.

    The new entry is updated with an existed_as which is an array of "old id's" that have been merged into the record

  13. Instead of using random algorithm for similar games on IGDB pages. Make users enable recommend games based on their review. See MyAnimeList for the implementation. Its something like this :

    If you like [Insert game title], then you can try this based on users recommendation and similar theme.

  14. Please add Dota 1 as separate category, as presented here:
    https://www.igdb.com/games/defense-of-the-ancients

    Currently streamers are forced to use Warcraft III as game even though they are playing strictly Dota.

    Hi!


    Unfortunately Twitch does not ingest MODs as streaming categories, and from a categorisation point of view that is nonetheless correct for us on IGDB: Dota 1 is indeed a MOD of Warcraft 3.


    What we'd recommend is to reach out to Twitch Support directly for the creation of a bespoke category, they are able to do override on certain categories. 

    Alternatively you may ask here directly for a new category to be created: https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/310210-discover?category_id=367945 


    Hope this helps!

  15. Specifically for PC games, this website gives info on how to get games running correctly and well, with patches such as widescreen support and workarounds to DRMs. For many older games, the information on this website is essential to get the game running correctly. Thanks!

  16. Games listed as Bundles on IGDB aren't selectable as Twitch categories, and for things like Gunvolt Striker Pack where you're either playing Gunvolt 1 or Gunvolt 2 that makes sense.

    Certain Bundles feel like experiences of their own though. I've been streaming the Game & Watch Gallery series recently and its frustrating that there's no category for it, the games it bundles together are small games, so you're naturally going to be playing around the collection, but Twitch has each individual game selectable rather than the bundle as a whole. I think it would be much better to just have…

  17. We are trying to Add VoxPop Storefront links, What is the submission process for the VP icono to be added to Storefronts?

    This is the VoxPop Games storefront - https://www.voxpopgames.site/store/featured

  18. Hello

    I noticed that there are so many Minecraft categories but none from the Minecraft Bedrock edition.

    In general, this is my suggestion. An extra category for the Minecraft Bedrock edition. I'm from the Minecraft Bedfrock edition scene and because there is no category for which many of my colleagues stream Minecraft Bedrock edition only on YouTube and not on Twitch. It is even often said that the Minecraft Bedrock edition would not be wanted on Twitch and something like that. And I think something should change so that another community can find its place on Twitch.

  19. Sometimes users may not log onto the site for a time, while there may be pending questions from Admins that may require feedback or clarification to get approved.

    Having the ability to enable Email Notifications for new comments on pending entries could help notify users in a more convenient way.

    Hey! There is very much a need for this absolutely. However it wouldn’t be a simple implementation at this point of time.

    We’ll definitely stay in touch when we proceed forward!
    thanks

  20. Company logos change with time and many of them do drastic changes. Suggestion to be able to upload more than 1 logo as well as date input accompanying logos.
    Also have a nice logo picture timeline where each logo has a 'from' and 'to' date associated.
