Data shows what's hot on Steam game platform

GameDataCrunch is a project by Lars Doucet that aggregates stats about the Steam game platform (with data from the Epic Store and GoG to come). The presentation is simple and straightforward (for example, its trending list for popular releases) and a surprisingly good way to discover interesting new games. (via Bennett Foddy)

Who is it for?

Anyone who's interested in learning more about the games industry by looking at data! That said, I specifically designed this website with developers, publishers, PR agencies, curators, influencers, researchers, and journalists in mind. … We collect all the publicly available facts that we know correlate with success — however loosely — and present them to you all in one place. Stats like — how many reviews does a game have? How many concurrent users? What's it's most recent position in the top sellers chart? We can measure these stats directly and report them accurately. But how many sales has game X made based on these stats? That we can't say. But we can say this: if you look at game X's performance stats, the game is ranked in the top 250 games on Steam. That starts to paint a picture.
