SteelSeries GameSense™ SDK

GameSense™ is a framework in SteelSeries Engine that allows games & apps to send status updates to Engine, which can then drive illumination, haptic & OLED display capabilities of SteelSeries devices. One simple example would be displaying the player's health on the row of functions keys as a bargraph that gets shorter and changes from green to red as their health decreases -- even flashing when it gets critically low.

This repository contains documentation, tutorials, and examples for developers wishing to support GameSense™ in their games or applications.

Submitting a game or app for approval

You actually don't need to submit anything to us.

Feel free to release your own app, and anyone who has your game/app installed should see it appear as a GameSense App inside of SteelSeries Engine. We want smaller devs to be able to develop their implementation completely on their own if they so choose.

Want to partner up and have a full curated experience for our mutual users?

Great, we do too. Contact us through this form and we'll get back to you right away. We can add images, text, links, and other info about your project. We can also help you with implementation, answer questions, and a lot more.

Project info we'll ask for:

  • Game/app title
  • Name of your organization/company
  • Link text & URL
  • Short description: for App tile, cannot exceed 200 characters
  • App tile image: 330 pixels x 200 pixels as a PNG, containing your logo with a solid background
  • GameSense customization page image: 200 pixels x 50 pixels as a PNG, containing your logo with a fully transparent background
