API Request

Post by jcards »

Hello,

I just downloaded the data dump from your recent announcement and was hoping to map the developer, platform, and genre ids to their text counterparts. Is it possible to get access to your API so I can run these requests?

Thanks,
Jack

Hello,

I'm hoping to analyze the number of cross-platform developers/publishers/game titles for an upcoming presentation. I will not release any of the raw data that the API provides access to, and will be sure to cite to TheGamesDB as a source of this analysis. As part of this analysis, I want to have some sense of the types of developers/publishers that work cross-platform, versus those that do not. I think that it would be more useful to have their names, instead of ids in order for me to do more research into these developers/publishers.

Happy to provide additional information, if you have specific questions.

Hello!

You've been granted an API key which you can access through this page.

Please check the Announcements forum on a regular basis to ensure compliance with any changes or updates.

Documentation is available on Swagger here.

Thank you for your interest!
