Opening API for the largest video game database in the world

There are two types of companies: hoarders and givers. RAWG is the largest video game database and game discovery service. And we are gladly sharing our 300,000+ games, search, and machine learning recommendations with the world. Learn what RAWG games database API can do!

Open API endpoints

  • search for a game by name: https://api.rawg.io/api/games?page_size=5&search=gta%20v
  • get detailed information about the game: https://api.rawg.io/api/games/grand-theft-auto-v
  • find more games like X — our machine learning algorithm analyzes in-game content to find similar games: https://api.rawg.io/api/games/grand-theft-auto-v/suggested?page_size=5

You may find these Python (by Laundmo) and Node (by orels1) wrappers helpful.

API Rules

  • every API request should have a User-Agent header with your app name;
  • no mass extraction. If you need the whole dataset for research or any other purpose — drop us a line at api@rawg.io and we will figure out how we can help you;
  • no cloning RAWG. It would not be cool if you used our API to launch a clone of RAWG. We know it is not always easy to say what is a duplicate and what isn’t. Drop us a line at api@rawg.io if you are in doubt, and we will talk it through;
  • commercial projects need our consent, email at api@rawg.io and we will figure out the terms.
