    Hi All -

    I've been developing a site which to host game and other stats centrally. It allows users to collect all their stats in one place. :)

    I'm looking for developers with online games to integrate the game stats (and trophies) with this platform. If even if you don't have a game, then I'd welcome input.

    At the moment there's just a couple of open source plugin's, for minecraft and iTunes.

    I suppose, I'll open this to the floor, let me know if you're interested, or if I can help you with an integration, etc. As I can't post any links right now, then please drop me an email or reply to this thread.

    All the best,

    Phil.

    The problem with this is that there are already plenty of other services offering similar things to this, but better, such as Steam, which is the giant amongst all of them. And something like Steam has already GOT a stats and achievements system for lots, and lots of games. And even Steam couldn't possibly get all games, there are plenty of PC games that can't be found on Steam, such as Minecraft.

    Which is a key point here. It's simply too much to ask to get every PC game in the world to integrate their stats with one central system. It's too much to ask to get even half of them to integrate their stats with one central system. What Steam offers is that it's already the status quo, their leader in the market, and developers join it all the time. Making this kind of system in what is a hugely crowded market, as a LONE developer, would be pretty much impossible for you to make much presence.

    Also, I, personally, like shugo, don't have much interest for gathering all my stats in one place anyway. Sorry.

    what he said ^


    First my stats for Roma are too unique to be able to integrated in a generic stats collection site. Second why would I want to? I already have my own system for storing and distributing it. It only seems to be more effort for no reward.
