MobyGames News

Sciere = 500,000 MobyGames points?!
It might seem outrageous, but it's true - Sciere, the top all-time MobyGames contributor, has reached a milestone that no other user on the website ever has - 500,000 MobyPoints!

Please congratulate and thank him for his 15 amazing years of service to game history on MobyGames.

Why the MobyGames 'promo image' section is important...
As many of you know, the 'promo image' section on MobyGames is where all the game images/screenshots from digital stores go, and also where promotional artwork is placed.



It means you can compare screens and hi-res promo art across many years - the Giants: Citizen Kabuto promo art section is a great example, since it includes everything from original '90s promo CD-ROM rips to the brand new GOG.com and Steam screenshots.

We think this is useful for preservation AND comparison purposes - keep uploading that promo art! (We also wanted to mention that we are finally planning to add the ability to include magazine ads in promo images at some point this year. It just requires some extra coding!)

The big milestone - congrats, two new 100k Mobypoints users!
Massive congratulations to リカルド・フィリペ and jaXen for being the 10th and 11th contributors to reach 100,000 MobyGames points!

It's a remarkable total, and the amount of items they've both added at this point is pretty staggering - thanks to both of them!

MobyGames Stats - 2017 edition
As per tradition, I present to you the database visualization! Made possible by the MobyGames API.

Previous editions:
June 2017 - January 2017 - January 2016 - January 2015 - January 2014 - January 2013 - January 2012 - January 2011 - January 2010 - January 2009



(Click to enlarge)

An explanation: each coloured shape in the graph represents a platform. The horizontal axis is time. The vertical axis represents the number of games released. So the height of a shape on a given point in time indicates the number of games released for that platform that year. The total height of the graph on a given point in time shows the total releases that year.

[All data taken from MobyGames. Of course, the graph is only as complete as our database is - meaning we currently undercount some new digital game platforms like PC/Mac, digital console, and iOS/Android since we don't 'scrape' those databases automatically - and the dropoff in 2015 and 2016 is because we're still entering newer games into the database. Come help us if you can!]

Guess the game logos this MobyGames logo is made from?
Regular MobyGames contributor Pseudo_Intellectual has posted his latest puzzle, as follows:

"It's been a while since I hit you fine folks with a round of my little game, but I hope that it takes you a few more minutes to guess the game-related source of all these letters than it did last time"



The existing forum thread has some correct guesses but there's still quite a few missing letters!
