GSGP: Game Scry Game Protocol - show live data from your game

GSGP is a standardized JSON structure which you can make available for GameScry or other sites to ping for real-time data about your game. It is intended for online games but anyone capable of creating an endpoint for it is welcome to.

Devs:

GameScry will automatically begin pinging your GSGP endpoint for updates to display, approx every 30 min.

Important - the endpoint is currently arbitrary (enter it on your game listing, GameScry will look there), but it is encouraged to use only "/gsgp" GET going forward, as other sites are beginning to look for that.
