Steam Spy is Steam stats service based on Web API provided by Valve. Steam Spy automatically gathers data from Steam user profiles, analyzes it and presents in simple, yet beautiful, manner.

Steam Spy is designed to be helpful for indie developers, journalists, students and all parties interested in PC gaming and its current state of affairs.

It's my hobby project, so to continue to support and improve it I need your help. Your money will go into paying my server bills, expanding the site and adding new features.

How it works

Steam Spy pulls data every minute, but updates visializations only once a day at night (03:00 GMT), so there is no point in refreshing it more often. The data is based on several days samples: from three days for individual apps to seven days for location-based info. It means that Steam Spy is completely unreliable for recently released games.

This service relies on data provided by Valve and, well, sometimes Valve Web API servers do not work as intended. So you might see missing or wrong information here and there.

Please note that Steam Spy extrapolates data from limited number of user profiles and thus isn't 100% correct.

What will you get for your support?

I'm posting my updates here first and you'll be able to see some stats before everyone else. Think about it as collection of interesting Steam-related trivia. Some of my stats, especially related to revenue aren't posted outside of Patreon at all.

You will also get an extended Steam Spy access to more historical data and some additional charts. You'll need to register on Steam Spy with your Patreon email for this to work.

But the most important thing here is that I'll be able to continue to support and improve Steam Spy, get a new server for it and give everyone access to more data.

How to get the access after pledging?

Please, make sure your Patreon email matches your email on Steam Spy. If that's the case, then you should be able to access Steam Spy instantly, but most likely will need to re-login on the site.
