A better video game reference

Help build it. Be a Dbljump editor.


The database gaming deserves

Dbljump is a video game knowledge database, API, web reference and community. It's a bit like Wikipedia or IMDb, but designed for games. We're not the first, but we plan on being the best. See how below.

  • Dbljump knows all about games…

    Credits, framerates, genres, images, platforms, release dates, resolutions, titles and more. That’s just at launch.

  • …And the wider world

    With people and company records, plus geographic and time systems, Dbljump is a detailed model of the industry.

  • It’s more than a website

    The Dbljump API will power more apps in future. We also plan to add features like news and game character data.

  • It’s for new games and old

    Dbljump aims to be the best Internet info hub for new and upcoming games. You can look up childhood favourites too.

  • It holds structured and unstructured data

    Wikipedia is deep. IMDb connects objects. With categorised notes built into its relational database, Dbljump is both.

  • It respects owners’ rights

    Dblump stores usage rights information (e.g. Creative Commons licenses) and we won’t include data we aren’t permitted to.

Join a rewarding community

Dbljump can only succeed if we build a great community. That's why we plan to recognise the value of editors, by sharing 10% of monthly ad profits among top contributors.

The Dbljump team

We're a small international team working hard to create something amazing. We're in this for the love, the games and the glory!

Writer and super-proud dad. More likely to be found playing Neko Atsume than to have any time for real games these days 😢

When he's not busy building the front-end side of Dbljump, Joan enjoys exploring the landscapes of Breath of the Wild on his Switch.
