Measuring engagement in video games

GameReach.io aims to measure how much the fans love a given game title - even before launch! Not just the critics. Not the people who collect games but never play them, but the fans.

It works by combining data points from several sources, all publicly available, and using special secret sauce to produce a score that reflects how engaged people are with a game. The database is updated weekly.

Engagement, as we define it, includes everything from people talking about the game, streaming it, and reviewing it - to playing it for hours on end.

A tool for game publishers, streamers, and video game marketing

Who is GameReach.io For?

  • Indie teams, who are building communities around their titles
  • Journalists, researching influential and popular video games
  • Marketers and community folks, tracking if their efforts are working
  • Streamers, YouTubers and content creators, looking for games to feature
  • Publishers, looking for indie games and teams to invest in
  • Designers, researching similar projects similar to their own

Since GameReach.io measures actual fan engagement, rather than sales and reviews, the tool is primarily aimed at industry professionals and video game content creators. The score is updated periodically, to reflect changes in how a given title is perceived, and can be used to track a title over time.

Why is it needed?

In video games, there are many variables that play into the success of a title. It is generally agreed, that building buzz and community around a new title is what makes the difference, between putting out another obscure title, and the next Big Thing.

GameReach.io is being built to quantify people's engagement, as a tool for tracking that process, and a way to measure what is popular now, and what has a long tail appeal.

GameReach.io is a Work-in-Progress
