It has been 8 months since our last update and seems it’s a good time to go for a general update. So here is what’s happening lately.

Renamed project:

As you may remember our old domain was which we decided to drop and got a brand new one;! You can still access the site through our old domain but it’s a good idea to update your bookmarks.

Recap: what is hypetraq?

So for new comers we wanted to recap our project; is our take on tracking, analyzing and measuring hype for games that we have been working since February 2018.

As of February 2019 it tracks data for a total of 34.5k games!

What has changed?

Since our last blog update, we have completed lots of tasks. Here are a few of them;

  • Improved our data processor — “hypeengine”. Now it’s fast, really fast!
  • Imported historic steam data — though we’ll be running another take soon to fix historic hourly data that’s missing.
  • Improved charts! Now you can see gain and percent gain data too. Exporting is also possible.
  • Added tabular data support;
What’s next?
  • Soon we’ll be re-writing major parts of the hypeengine which will allow us to track more data like sales, store positions.
  • We’ll be fixing the missing “hourly historic Steam players data” soon. Until then we still have historic daily data.
  • You’ll be able to sort games by gain and percent gain data.

If you have any feedback you would like to send, remember that we do have a discord server!
