Visit the game's page in the database, scroll to the bottom of the page. Left hand side column > Community Stats > click the Add link for 'Owners' and then the Add link for 'Now Playing'.

There is none for Hollow Knight, which is the one I want to add.

It needs to have a release date added to it so that the database knows it's been released.

Found a work around it.Enabled the wishlist option, then went to My Games, and enabled the Add option from there.Then finally was able to enable now Playing option.

But it has already been released on PC.Someone needs to add the PC as a platform on the database?

Yeah, the PC version hasn't been added yet. Anyone can do it though, that's the beauty of the database.

Ughhh....spent hours researching games and developers for games not in the system only for them to be added by others. Kind of sucky.

My box art submission for Powerdrome was rejected, but I'm not sure why since I can confirm that the current American box art is wrong and the one that I submitted is correct (unless it had a watermark or something on it).



Hey guys, it's been about 6 days since my Metro submissions for PS4 and XB1, but they haven't been accepted nor rejected. I was wondering if the one who has it queued could take a look at it?



How do I add a release date for a self-published game? To add a release date, you need to add a publisher, and unsurprisingly, most small devs are not in the publisher database... Alternatively, what do I input as the publisher for self-published games?

For context, I was trying to add a game to my owned games but I couldn't, and then I realized it's probably because the game lacks a release date. (Funnily enough though, somehow the game has one owner.)

Adding publishers is restricted to the DB team.
I have been adding a lot of smaller devs/pubs in the recent weeks but there are still so many left.

Tell me which ones you are missing and I will gladly add them :)

Ah, I see. I would like Crate Entertainment added.
