api key requests

Working on an app for Chromecast that's basically the same functionality as the default Chromecast screen saver, except shows random game box art/info. I have my proof of concept up and running, just needs some real data! (Mostly for personal use, it would just be browser-based and free )

After reading some more through the forums, it seems like there's not really a good setup for accessing a random game. Is it possible to get a db dump to make my own mirror? Or would implementing an api call for (filtered) random access be possible in the future?

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 here.

You can find SQL and JSON dumps here.
I'm not sure if random game endpoint is needed. The most preferrable way is to make own mirror and update it via updates endpoint.

Good luck!

I'm afraid we can no longer provide API access to you since it's for devs only.
