We want to revive and modernize MobyGames.com! Including building an API to unleash a treasure trove of game data.

UPDATE!
Thanks in part to the help of our wonderful Patrons, we have built the 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.

What is MobyGames?
MobyGames is the oldest, largest and most accurate database for video games spanning 168 platforms from 1971 to date. It's essentially the IMDB of the games industry, and often referenced as the go-to source for game credits and classic games. 

We have an extremely ambitious project: To meticulously catalog all relevant information about electronic games (computer, console, and now arcade) on a game-by-game basis. This includes scanned cover art (330,000 and counting!), extensive game credits, rare promo art, screenshots and much more.

How your support will help
Your support will help us put resources into servers, modernizing the site (including making it mobile-friendly), improving contribution tools and building a publicly accessible API.

It's a major undertaking, as the MobyGames codebase is now over 15 years old. The database has over 100,000 game entries, including developer credits, trivia, tech specs, reviews, etc. There are also dozens of tools for the submission and approval processes that need to be overhauled.

Become a MobyGames supporter!
We've made many changes to the site over the past couple years, but there's MUCH more to do and we need your help to bring it to fruition. Your support will go a long way to helping revive MobyGames and ensure it's preserved for another 15+ years.

Let us know if you have any questions and we hope you'll join us!

NOTE
As a special thanks to our early supporters, the first 100 $5+ Patrons (non-commercial) will be forever immortalized as a Founding Patron.
