Information on Liquid and Grit's Database Tool in the Design Portal
The Database supplies over 25K filterable and searchable libraries containing screenshots and gameplay videos.
How to access
You must be logged in to access Liquid and Grit's Design Portal and Database tool. For full access to Liquid and Grit's suite of tools, email support at [email protected].
To help you get started, here’s a summary of the content available in the Database:
Gallery contains screenshots and video content of game features, mechanics, events, etc. Each entry contains a gallery of image and often video content.
Data contains a table of our internal tracking data corresponding to your filter selection. The data can be exported as CSV.
Matrix contains a breakdown of the features and/or apps contained in each game we track. Clicking X provides gallery results for the specific feature for that game.
How to use
Use the menu on the left side of your browser screen to filter results in the database. Click either Gallery, Data, or Matrix to view filtered results. You can also search database content with the search bar.
Results can be filtered by market category, date, game, subgenre, and more.
You can set up notifications for when new content is published in our database that fit your criteria:
Use the filter menu to select filter criteria
Click “Add Filter Notification”
Give the Filter Notification a Name, how often you want to be notified, and the day and time of day when you want to be notified
You can view your Filter Notifications by clicking the “My Notifications” tab. You can quickly view the filter results of your notification, edit the notification, or delete it.
Let's say you’d like to build a Banks feature for a Puzzle game and would like to show examples to your design team. URLs are unique to results and so can be shared. To view examples, filter by clicking “Casual”, “Puzzle”, “Features”, and “Banks”:
Images and animations can be downloaded from “Gallery”. You can also export data to CSV from the “Data” tab:
In our taxonomy, features are permanent meta-elements, events are limited-time meta-elements, and content is core gameplay elements (e.g., slot machines, level designs, and heroes).
When filtering by app, you can select either tracked, which will display apps we follow regularly, or deconstruct, which will display apps for which we have performed a specific teardown.
Filtering by popular will display trending sub-categories within mechanics (e.g., battle pass).
