Game Innovation Database

The Game Innovation Database (GIDb) has been developed by a team at Pittsburgh's Carnegie Mellon University. The online database will be completed in a Wiki fashion. The goal is to make it 'the first complete online record of a rapidly changing industry and a useful resource for those who don't know their Pong from their PacMan'.

It is a nice resource for researchers but it could be even more useful for game developers who are trying to come up with next killer idea in games. New innovations and solutions are expected for the game industry to continue to grow. History of games is a perfect way to start the journey as there are many lessons to be learned from the history.
