How it works

Welcome to Steam Spy

Steam Spy is Steam stats service based on Web API provided by Valve and cool idea of Kyle Orland from Ars Technica. Steam Spy automatically gathers data from Steam user profiles, analyzes it and presents in simple, yet beautiful, manner.

Steam Spy is designed to be helpful for indie developers, journalists, students and all parties interested in PC gaming and its current state of affairs.

You can follow Steam Spy on Twitter for the latest announcements: @Steam_Spy. You can also follow its author: @galyonkin.

Youtube data is obtained using YouTube API and is subject to YouTube's Terms of Service. By continuing to use the site you are agreeing to be bound by the YouTube Terms of Service.

Please note that Steam Spy extrapolates data from limited number of user profiles and thus isn't 100% correct.

Steam Spy pulls data every minute, but updates visializations only once a day at night (GMT+2), so there is no point in refreshing it more often. The data is based on several days samples: from three days for individual apps to seven days for location-based info. It means that Steam Spy is competely unreliable for recently released games.

This service relies on data provided by Valve and, well, sometimes Valve Web API servers do not work as intended. So you might see missing or wrong information here and there.

Steam Spy API

Most of Steam Spy's data is available through API here: http://steamspy.com/api.php. It is pretty self-explanatory, take a look.

Steam Spy is still in beta, so expect major bugs.
