I gave a few comments on the proposal:

1. minNumberOfPlayer / maxNumberOfPlayer

I suggest using a single property numberOfPlayers with a range of schema:QuantitativeValue instead. This allows using point values (5 players), and open and closes intervals (at least 3 players, 3-5 players, max 5 players). It will also be more consistent with modeling quantitative values in other parts.


2. addOn already exists in schema.org for linking offers to optional extensions. Since the meaning of the proposed property addOn for Software application seems to be different, I urge you to use a different name. Also, I do not really understand what "Additional content for software application" means.

3. For gamePlatform, you could include "Thing" in the range - URL or Text or Thing (formally, this would be equivalent to Thing, but we will want to point developers to the fact that they can use entity URIs, page URIs, or strings).

4. playersOnline should have a range of Number, not Text.

Example for numberOfPlayers:


<div itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/VideoGame" >
  <span itemprop="name">ACME Hide-and-Run</span>
...
  Number of Players: <div itemprop="numberOfPlayers" itemscope 
       itemtype="http://schema.org/QuantitativeValue">
      <span itemprop="value">5</span> 
  </div>
</div>



<div itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/VideoGame" >
  <span itemprop="name">ACME Hide-and-Run</span>
...
  Number of Players: <div itemprop="numberOfPlayers" itemscope 
       itemtype="http://schema.org/QuantitativeValue">
      <span itemprop="minValue">3</span> or more
  </div>
</div>


<div itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/VideoGame" >
  <span itemprop="name">ACME Hide-and-Run</span>
...
  Number of Players: <div itemprop="numberOfPlayers" itemscope 
       itemtype="http://schema.org/QuantitativeValue">
      Up to: <span itemprop="maxValue">5</span> 
  </div>
</div>

<div itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/VideoGame" >
  <span itemprop="name">ACME Hide-and-Run</span>
...
  Number of Players: <div itemprop="numberOfPlayers" itemscope 
       itemtype="http://schema.org/QuantitativeValue">
      <span itemprop="minValue">3</span> to
      <span itemprop="maxValue">5</span> 
  </div>
</div>
