SteamGridDB is a website dedicated to the hosting of promotional assets for Steam and GOG. UGC on the site consists of "grids" (box art or small banners), "heroes" (high-resolution landscape art), and logos.

The site acts as both an aggregator of assets from around the Internet and a place to share self-made assets; both are allowed, and the site does not distinguish between them.

Vital signs

  • On 7 March 2020, the site's owner, doZennn, made an announcement regarding the future of the site on its Discord server. The site's Patreon page showed that they were only $41 towards the $250 needed per month to pay for the servers' expenses.

doZennn's announcement

This is an announcement I am not happy to make. We are no longer able to cover the server's costs, even with support from our patrons.

I am actively working on finding a permanent solution for this upset, so there's no need to panic.

In the absolute worst case scenario, where I have to shut the site down, you will be able to download all of your own uploads in bulk, and pledges for this month will be refunded. Of course I will still be making a backup of the database (including all the images) for safe keeping.

I'll keep everyone updated as the situation progresses.
