Kickstarter Project[edit]

The actual final funding was over 3million dollars. I'm not very familiar with Wikipedia, could somebody update the article in a proper manner? I guess this would need to be sourced but I don't know how to do that. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2.231.49.195 (talk) 00:54, 31 March 2012 (UTC)

Hi. I'm not really sure how this editing thing works, but I just changed "San Francisco bridge" to "Golden Gate Bridge" in the article. It just bugged me as a Bay Area resident to see the bridge identified incorrectly. I'm sorry if I did anything improper, but if I did, I'm sure somebody will fix my goof eventually.

No problem! I linked the Golden Gate Bridge to the relevant article. Have a look at the How to edit a page article, if you're not sure whether you're doing it right. ;) menscht 11:07, 7 July 2006 (UTC)


As said in the article, Spinner Spips is a tenative name for the game.

But where did you find that information? Is it somewhere on a game site? menscht 22:25, 15 November 2006 (UTC)'

On a release date sheet. On 2007? area.

The story info came from an internal document claimed by an unnamed ex-employee. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Wheeliedude (talkcontribs)

Myeah. I wonder why the game sites haven't picked it up yet. Sounds like a hoax or at least misinformation to me. The fact that it would be released on the Wii is also pretty strange, since Psychonauts was released only on XBox, PS2 and PC. Until there's a proper source I think the information shouldn't be included. menscht 23:13, 15 November 2006 (UTC)

Okay, you got me. It's a hoax. I will promise not to mislead people anymore. Good day, sir. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Wheeliedude (talkcontribs)

Well, at least you're honest about... menscht 12:42, 16 November 2006 (UTC)

I try to be. -Wheeliedude

I don't know that the Double Fine name story is accurate. In 2004, I interviewed at Double Fine and asked Tim about this personally. It apparently was a sign he saw in his childhood that made him think that the neighborhood he was in wasn't just fine, but double fine, it was that good. Unfortunately, this is original research - it would be good if someone could get Tim to confirm it in a web interview or some such that we could reference. — Pyrenil (talkcontribs) 00:19, 20 June 2011 (UTC)

Proposed merge with Massive Chalice[edit]

Wikipedia is not a collection of product announcements and rumors. Please see WP:NOTCRYSTALBALL. Therefore, the planned video game Massive Chalice should not have its own article. Unforgettableid (talk) 17:17, 9 September 2013 (UTC)

Oppose It's been announced, has a successful Kickstarter, and there's sufficient development information as the game progresses. Yes, it may fail to be released, but even cancelled games can have articles. --MASEM (t) 17:23, 9 September 2013 (UTC)
Oppose Game is going to happen therefore WP:NOTCRYSTALBALL doesn't apply. There are hundreds / thousands of examples of movie or TV show Wiki pages being created before the show actually debuted. Ckruschke (talk) 19:41, 9 September 2013 (UTC)Ckruschke
Oppose Not only has it been announced, but it's the subject of significant coverage already. Let me see if I can go rummage some up. Sven Manguard Wha? 19:47, 9 September 2013 (UTC)
  • This VG247 article discusses the concept in great detail.
  • This IGN article also discusses the concept in great detail.
  • This Eurogamer article announces the success of the Kickstarter, and mentions that same-sex couples will be supported in the game.
  • This Rock Paper Shotgun article describes how Kickstarter feedback shaped how same-sex couples would be incorporated into the game, and about the development in general.
  • There's also a bunch of videos of the development team describing the development, if we can use them.
Sven Manguard Wha? 20:35, 9 September 2013 (UTC)
Oppose WP:NOTCRYSTALBALL doesn't apply since it's not a rumored production, but rather has been confirmed to be in development, and already received pre-orders of sorts through a successful kickstarter campaign. It meets the requirements of Wikipedia:Notability_(video_games) since the links posted by Sven Manguard above and the reference links already at its article show that it "has been the subject of significant commentary or analysis in published sources that are independent of the game developer".
