We have made our powerful API available to the public! Whether you need the VGDB API for personal use, or as a strong foundation to build apps of your own ontop of (with users of your own), the VGDB API has you covered!


  • Powerful
  • Documented!
  • Easy-To-Use
  • Supports OAuth Authentication
  • Not Overly Complicated. Seriously, simplicity is the ultimate sophistication, and we believe in we believe in K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple, Stupid). If you can code and have even the most basic development experience using an API, you can do this, and even if you don't have prior API experience, you can pick this up easily. SUPER easy.

To begin, you must register a client. A client you can think of as an app of your own which will consume the VGDB API. Your app can easily take advantage of basic features, such as searching games, and if authentication is needed, OAuth is available.
