Game Cleaner

Game Cleaner is a cleaner program for gamers.

Game Cleaner is designed to cleanup gameplatforms and freeup diskspace. It's basically created around a filesearch script. There are gamers who have a lot of games on their system. Not every game but many games can create files in the form of logs. Especially 'Early Access' games can create more unnecessary files. You may also want to clean up a certain platform and make it as new again without having to install it again. It uses win32 components to retrieve and display computer specification data. This also extracts the current percentage of CPU load. To show this continuously, a low-cpu consuming backgroundworker is used.

Startup check.

When Game Cleaner starts, you can choose whether you want to close certain game platforms. This is to prevent possible damage to a current session. If you don't want this, you can click ignore. This window only comes up when needed. It is not recommended to use Game Cleaner if a game platform is still active.


Mark your choice.

Now you can select what Game Cleaner should look for. As soon as you click on 'Scan Now' this will be looked up. If an option is later found to be unavailable, it will be skipped. If you only want to search for old files go to the 'search option' and change the search range.


If you took screenshots while playing, you can now view and delete them in Game Cleaner. To remove them, you must first select them. This will be automatically updated in Steam.

Find correct file locations.

At first Game Cleaner tries to detect them automatically.  In Game Cleaner's Paths-tab you can set the correct work location yourself. If you don't have a particular game platform on your system then leave it as it will be ignored. Game Cleaner saves its settings when you close it. You can also add extra game locations if you have games on a different drive installed.

Check the files!

When finished, you can check all the found data yourself before deleting them. If you want to keep certain files or folders, you can remove them from the list with the Del key or 'Remove selected' button. It is also possible to open a particular file and check the content for relevance. Also, you can open the particular location where the files are located.

Delete the files.

When you are done, Checking the files and folders, You can click on the Delete button and all files still present in the list will be deleted. Afterwards, you will see how much of the data has actually been deleted. Please note that the files will then be deleted forever. Current cache data that still appears to be needed is downloaded again after starting a game platform.
