It would be great if I could do a search for "Steam %game name%" and get an instant answer that gives me info (like price, description, and game cover image) of the game.

Great idea! It looks like Steam does have a few API's, but none of them look like they allow you to search for games. Anyone know if there are better or alternative sources for this information?

GiantBomb has a neato API, available at http://www.giantbomb.com/api/ - I'm currently trying to replace the redundant game_info spice's backend with it. It's not steam-specific, but has pretty much every game on Steam covered A-Z.

Nice! His code is in https://github.com/duckduckgo/zeroclicki..., but I haven't checked it yet. It looks promising, Tom. Have you looked into Steam's API?

As far as I've looked into it, steam doesn't have an official game search API, which is... frustrating. https://code.google.com/p/steamcommunity... uses a http://steamcommunity.com endpoint which doesn't seem to be working for me at the moment. I'll look into alternate solutions.

A bit late, but what about http://steamdb.info/ ?
