About Leinstay & Demonik


We (Leinstay/Demonik) are the team of programmers who created Game Gauntlets, the website that is used at the annual convention of russian top-rated streamers Strimhata and local HPG and SGG events. More often, our site is used as a one-of-a-kind randomizer and a database of all games that existed on Steam, with additional information about difficulty, rankings and gameplay length taken from GameFAQ, SteamSpy, HowLongToBeat, Metacritic, Gamerankings and IGDB. Our parsing scripts collect information from all these sites daily and continuously to ensure the most up-to-date information.

About Patreon and the future:

At the moment, we have implemented almost every thing that is necessary for the smooth operation of the website and returned to our main work. And the Patreon was created to see whether our users need a further enhancement of the website. In the future, we could implement:

  • Games from the following stores: Uplay, Origin, Battle.net, GOG (Already done!);
  • More filters: availability/non-availability of discounts, achievements, etc.;
  • Search for specific games by name (Already done!);
  • Open API for accessing our database (with limits);
  • Statistics and summary for all trading platforms (Already done!);
  • Speedrun information for each existing game;
  • Applications for Android/iOS (Already done!);
  • Possibility to maintain a list of completed games and get experience and profile level for those games.

How much to donate and what to do if you have no money for donations:

Even the smallest donation is of great importance. $1 is a pack of apples or rice. It can help to live and not to grieve! Plus, you can unsubscribe at any time if you will lose an attraction to the site.
No money? No problem! Our site, as before, is freely available on the web. Nothing will change for you. Likes and comments excellently help and support as well.

Examples of challenges:

  • SGG: Complete games in the specified time periods: 1985-1990, 1990-1995, 1995-2000, 2000-2003, 2003-2006, 2006-2009, 2009-2012, 2012-2014, 2014-2016, 2016-2018;
  • HPG: Complete games in the specified price periods: 0-5, 5-10, 10-20, 20-30, 30-35, 35-40, 40-45, 45-50;
  • Speedrun GG: Complete 10 random games 15-25% faster than in "time to beat";
  • Indie GG: Complete 10 random Indie games and support independent developers;
  • Coop GG: Any SGG with a filter for cooperative gameplay with an interested friend;
  • One-trick GG: Any GG in one specific genre (only RPG, FPS, etc.);
The point of the this challenges is to experience how the video game industry has changed (and whether it has changed at all). The difficulty and duration can be changed by increasing or decreasing the number of games.
10% complete
This sum would inspire us to further enhance our service and will also help to cover the cost of maintaining the server and paying for the domain.
