Background: Nowadays, game recommendation is based on the genre of the game that a player often plays. However, the different game with the different genre but by the same producer may be also a essential factor to discover the game that the player would like. Like Shigeru Miyamoto, the person that create Mario, Link and some other great games with different kinds of game play has his own way to attract player. The players who likes Mario usually like link too. This may be the clue that our idea can be somehow interesting. Aim: Trying to help people find the games that is similar to their favorite games. All you need is the game title that you like. Concept: By using the linked open data from wikidata.org, we would like to link the specific game title to its producer so that we can find out the other game that is produced by this producer since the producer affect the game style mostly.

Here the system will show a list of games with the description which can be found on the Wikipedia page of the game. Since the main producer and creator of "Metroid", which you entered before, is Shigeru Miyamoto, the game listed here are all created and produced by Shigeru Miyamoto and the genre is action. I suppose that you might be able to tape the "Learn more" button to get further information about this game, maybe the URL to the purchasing page in the future.
