MobyGames News

ANNOUNCE: MobyGames hits 100,000 promo images archived!
We only announced this section in June 2016, but we're delighted to announce that we have over 100,000 images added to the promo images section on MobyGames.

Many of these are automagically 'scraped' from major stores (Steam, iOS, Google Play, etc!), which is still important since these screenshots change and sometimes disappear over time. But a large number are also grabbed from other sources, like '90s FTP sites or even press CD-ROMs. And MobyGames' high Google ranking means the images often get prominently displayed for Internet users to check out and use. So... great work, all contributors who made this happen!

(We're planning more ability to contribute other types of images to MobyGames soon, including a way to add magazine advertisements, so watch out for an announcement on that!)

Spotlight on: Kabushi's amazing work adding obscure games!

While we've been focusing a lot on the recently added promo art, we also wanted to point to some regular contributors who don't get enough 'MobyGames news section love'. In particular, Sweden's Kabushi continues to regularly add super-important credits and game entries for obscure systems.

For example, here's the 200+ games he's added this year, including rarities like Addition Magician, a rare Lumines J2ME game, and even a Sonic title for the Leapster.

You can check out everything he's added in 2016 here, & since many of these titles are not well-documented on Wikipedia or elsewhere, the info, credits & screenshots are super important for documenting game history. Much kudos to him!

MobyGames adds API, asks for more Patreon help!
As we just updated on the MobyGames Patreon page: "Thanks in part to the help of our wonderful Patrons, we have built a MobyGames API and are currently in the process of alpha testing! There's still a lot of work to do, but this is a big step forward."

We're keen to keep adding features to the site, and your monthly pledge really helps to pay for server costs and for coding time to both add to the existing site & continue working on a new one. Please consider adding to our Patreon today - we have some new tiers & special icons for supporters!

Preserving '90s PC promo screenshots on MobyGames!

Since we launched the promo images section on MobyGames, there's been over 90,000 images uploaded (!), including many rare press CD-ROM images & raft of automatically 'scraped' images for Steam, Nintendo and iOS - thanks to _all_ contributors who've made that possible. (The image 'scraping' tech will be rolling out to all contributors soon, by the way - it's approver-only right now.)

In any case, we wanted to also highlight the amazing work of MrFlibble, a MobyGames contributor who notes on his profile: "I'm primarily interested in more or less obscure shareware games of the 90s era for DOS and Windows." And he's been uploading lots of rare images - many pre-release - from the games of that period.

Some great examples he pointed out to us - Powerslave pre-release pics from 1996, some rare concept art for Z, some Dark Colony official images, and early Redneck Rampage images. Thanks so much to MrFlibble, and we'll try to highlight other great contributors - both for promo images and to our regular credits/game additions - soon.

Edge's 'Art Of The Pixel' features MobyGames screenshots!

Just a quick note to point out that MobyGames is thanked specially in the credits of Edge Magazine's excellent 'Art Of The Pixel' special that came out recently. Here's a couple of scans of the magazine, including the credits page where MobyGames is thanked.

'Art Of The Pixel' largely features contemporary pixel artists, but has 'interlude' screens that include retro pixel art, much of it using screenshots uploaded to MobyGames, apparently! You can order the magazine here for worldwide delivery.
