Here's more information about it and how to access it, if you're interested. (And we do have a commercial license if you need to use it that way too!)
While we're doing well adding games in general to MobyGames - see above graph where red is # of approved items, particularly the right hand part of it which shows our all-time record is in 2017 - we've been slowing down a bit in the last few months.
Part of the issue is that there's SO many Steam games nowadays, that it's difficult to work out what to add, honestly. One method I've found helpful is to look at SteamSpy's sales countdown for a particular month - like January 2017 - and then check to see which games we are missing that cost more than USD $5. In many cases - like Avorion, which has more than 100,000 players, we've got it added. But in others, not so much.
We'd love to get to the stage where all Steam games that cost more than $5 and have more than 5,000 players are documented on MobyGames, but we know that's a tall order. Don't forget that you can use the Entry Helper to enter these games!
Also, Alaka now made it to 50,000 points (very impressive!), and Vedder is now at 25,000 points - also a great total, which puts him in the Top 50 overall. All of these folks are doing amazing work contributing historical and current data to MobyGames, and wanted to thank them here - keep it up.
This year alone, he's added over 1300 Critic Scores, as well as over 600 promo images, 55 games, nearly 400 release infos, and a whole bunch of other stuff. The fact that we have such diverse reviews, even for obscure games, across many languages - and with sites it's difficult to grab scores from automatically - is down to users like him. Kudos, Sir!
Thanks to MobyGames contributor Kam1Kaz3NL77 & others, we now have over 100 items in our 'dedicated handheld' section, and have completed documenting Nintendo's Game & Watch handhelds.
Some examples: Manhole, Mario Bros., and, of course Snoopy Tennis. What's particularly nice about this is that we now have Nintendo games documented in a relational database from 1980-1981 all the way to the present day. Hopefully we can do more with this data in the future, but in the meantime, great work, y'all.

Tip Of The DayCruisin' for Contribution Points, Volume Two: If you own a game that doesn't have screenshots in MobyGames, take a few -- they're worth 2 points each. Even if a game already has screenshots, you can still get your screenshots accepted if they are better than what we have on file. What's better than what we have? Examples include shots that have actual gameplay in them instead of just an intro cinematic; shots that don't give the ending of the game away; shots that are encoded properly (320x200 games saved as 4/16/256-color GIF instead of a 640x400 JPG). The last section of the FAQ has some pointers on taking screenshots. more tips

While you could just drive around the maps, the real fun is of course the myriad of objects and natural forces you can use to destroy BeamNG.drive's set of planes, trains, and automobiles.
It's a lot to ask of an indie studio, and the developers' ambitions don't end there; they plan on adding more modes in the future, including a full-length campaign. However, it's hard to worry that this is yet another case of a small team biting off more than they can chew. Instead, their focuses on communication, realistic expectations, and user support all contribute to a very positive feeling for the game's future. This is definitely one to keep an eye on as its development progresses.
