About the GameDiscoverCo newsletter

Welcome to the GameDiscoverCo newsletter, a regular look at how people discover and buy video games in the 2020s, written by ‘how people find your game’ expert and GameDiscoverCo founder Simon Carless.

If you sign up to the free version of the newsletter, you’ll get multiple high-quality newsletters every week. These feature overviews, analysis and notable links around ‘premium’ PC and console video game discovery, games, and platforms.

In addition, the GameDiscoverCo Plus paid newsletter tier gives you a whole bunch of extra stuff, including:

  • Full access to GameDiscoverCo’s Steam Hype data back-end, which analyzes and ranks all 8,000+ unreleased - and now also 70,000+ released - Steam games by popularity, ‘Hype’ conversion & more - with searching by Steam tag, exportable .CSV data, daily reports, & lots more.

  • The very helpful 'Plus' member-only GameDiscoverCo Discord server, a low-volume but high-takeaway location for talking ‘game discovery tips & news’ with hundreds of your peers and the GameDiscoverCo crew..

  • 'Plus' data-driven newsletters, covering full Steam trends, Xbox, PlayStation, Switch, Epic Games Store & more, weekly every Friday. Here’s a free sample Plus newsletter from May 2022, if you want to see what they’re like.

  • eBooks, including ‘The Complete Game Discovery Toolkit’, an enhanced compilation of the very best ‘evergreen’ advice and data from the GameDiscoverCo newsletter, and Derek Yu’s book on the design & discovery of Spelunky.
