I've been making a site with the API, and I thought I should show it off in here. Presenting... MICROTRANSACTION ZONE:
If you want a detailed description of what the idea behind the site is, we released a mission statement a while back (Link), but the skinny is as follows:
- We've divided modern video game DLC/microtransactions into several broad categories/"tags"
- Anyone can browse to a game, check off the tags that apply, and write a paragraph or two about exactly how the game's monetization schemes are put together. There's also support for external links, to wiki pages/articles/youtube videos with more information
- Once a submission has been approved/proofread by a moderator (me or my co-founder), it goes live on the site for everyone else to see
- There's also a filtering engine in place, so it's possible to look up "All the [PS4] [First-person shooter games] that have been marked as not having [Randomized real-money loot boxes]"
We're in closed beta right now, polishing off the last few corners before we launch for real. I hope you'll check it out once we open our doors!
