Today marks the 2nd anniversary of Backloggd and the first year being released at 1.0. As a mini-celebration we’ll take a stroll through memory lane, look at various site-wide stats, and then see what’s on the horizon for Backloggd.

The Past

The Present

As of today we have hit over 615K game logs with more flooding in by the hour! 300K of those contain ratings with a total of 20K reviews. That’s something that only could be possible by our 2235% increase in users since last year. From 216 to over 5,100 today, a growth that only seems exponential from here. That makes it about to 4 reviews and 120 games logged per user.

And to think most of these came within the last 4 months! It makes me very excited to see how the future looks from here. Speaking of…

The Future

First look at 1.5

If you look very closely you may notice something different about the game page.. okay it’s actually pretty obvious, the reviews count icon is now purple.

Oh that and the reviews have been visually overhauled.

The current reviews were starting to feel a bit cramped in their cards and information was scattered all over the place, we needed something better while keeping the amount of information the same. So now we have log info at the top, content in the middle, and interactables at the bottom. Strip away the card and you get what you see above! Don’t worry 1.5 will be much more than just a visual update, this screenshot alone has a few implications we’ll discuss later down the road.

Thank You to Everyone!
