Super Hexagon stats

Cool stats for Terry Cavanagh's game Super Hexagon. I love this game and you should love it too. Try the Flash version so you know how awesome it is (Super Hexagon is even better).

Website is live on If you have any ideas for new features, just create a new issue.


Would it be possible to do something like this for another Steam game (or all other Steam games) with a leaderboard?

Yes, but I don't want to simply because Valve now knows that e.g. group leaderboards are useful (thanks, greuben :)) so I hope they will implement it as a native Steam feature. Or it may be available on awesome sAPI in the future, I don't know.

Does it work in IE or similar ancient browsers?

I have no idea. If there are any problems, create a new issue or make a pull request with a fix.

I have more questions!

Tweet me or add me on Steam.

Oh, also buy our game Euro Truck Simulator 2. It's required to use Super Hexagon stats... Ok, just kidding. But try it.

Technical stuff

This site was built with AngularJS. It's my first project in it, so it may be ugly. I'm using Ruby for server stuff (specifically Sinatra), MongoDB (MongoLab) for the database, CoffeeScript, and Twitter Bootstrap because you wouldn't want to look at the website if it was designed by me.

I want to try it on my machine!

  1. You definitely want to get RVM (Ruby Version Manager). Life would be hard without this awesome tool. Or try pik if you are on Windows, but I haven't tried that so it's possible that it doesn't work.
  2. Go to the directory and run bundle install in the terminal.
  3. Open file env_variables.rb.example, rename it to env_variables.rb and change it to your needs (used in development, use e.g. Heroku config in production).
  4. Run rake hex:update_data to update leaderboard and users. It will take a while, Steam API is slow.
  5. Install Node.js and then sudo npm install -g coffee-script to install CoffeeScript compiler.
  6. Run rake js:compile to compile CoffeeScript files in the coffescripts directory. It's a good idea to put it in a shell script before launching the server (or if you use RubyMine, just set Run Rake task js:compile in the Before launch option).
  7. Run Super Hexagon stats with thin start, rackup or however you want!
