Wikipedia:WikiProject Video games/Requests
|This category has a backlog that requires the attention of willing editors.
Please remove this notice if and when the backlog is cleared.
If you think an article about video games should be added to Wikipedia and know that it meets the inclusion criteria above, please list it below with URL links to the reliable sources that prove its notability (e.g., reviews or dedicated coverage from IGN or Polygon, but not forum posts, blogs without a professional staff, or the official website of the subject). Please do not add games or developers that do not yet meet this notability criterion, as they will be deleted; instead help us work on another current article and remember to add the game/developer if they meet the criteria in the future. Once an article is created, please remove the request. Please see Wikipedia:Articles for creation for more information on what articles are acceptable. Thank you.
If you placed a request here that was since removed, it likely did not meet Wikipedia's general notability guideline, and is not a fit topic for an article at this time.

- Can't find any sources online for any of these, all released in the 90s though so I assume any content would be found in magazines. Samwalton9 (talk) 11:53, 5 July 2013 (UTC)
- Gundemonium Collection - A collection of three PC Indie manic shooters from Platine Dispositif which got an English release over Play Station Network from publisher Rockin' Android. 
- Requesting some notable downloading websites:
- Game X Change - A video game store that sells second-hand games, like GameCrazy. It sells Yobo products (firsthand), DVD's, systems, their games, and accessories. Website
- Source: only ref from italian article
- Clockwork Tortoise - The developers of The adventures of Batman and Robin on the Sega Mega Drive/ Genesis.
- I don't know how plausible this is, only one ref I can find.  ▫ JohnnyMrNinja 22:26, 7 January 2012 (UTC)
- That would be an excellent source for development, but it's not the basis of a company article IMO. Currently all the different versions are squashed into The Adventures of Batman & Robin (video game), this would make a good basis for a standalone MD/Genesis game article. Someoneanother 21:00, 13 January 2012 (UTC)
- Trouble Witches (series) - It would be helpful to have information regarding this dōjin bullet hell series from Studio SiestA and Adventure Planning Service. There has been some mixed information regarding the original dōjin Windows PC release (Trouble Witches Episode 1 ~Daughters of Amalgam~) and the arcade release (Trouble Witches AC Episode 1 ~Daughters of Amalgam~) that could help bridge the gap a lot of the gameplay differences of the Xbox Live Arcade release of the arcade game (Trouble Witches NEO! Episode 1 ~Daughters of Amalgam~), along information on the canceled PC release of Trouble Witches AC (Trouble Witches AC was originally planned for a PC release instead of arcades) and the early development of the game's English localization by the developers entitled "The Tomboyish Witches ~With Amalgam's Cutie Girls~". It also appears that the developers of Studio Siesta and Adventure Planning Service plans on making a sequel to Trouble Witches Episode 1 with Trouble Witches Episode 2 ~with Descendants of ancient Dragon the soulless~ that is expected to be released on Xbox Live Arcade in the near future (according to the developer's homepage).|AnubisOracle (talk) 22:48, 10 August 2011 (UTC)
- Slime Mori Mori Dragon Quest 3 - spinoff to the Dragon Quest series
- Dunjonquest: Sorcerer of Siva - linked by two pages, but this topic does not exist yet. I can upload box pictures.
- Braminar - classic Fantasia-style MS-DOS game popular on BBSs in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Notability of publisher , game info 
- Gen'ei Toshi - JRPG with a mature story and strong cyberpunk themes released in 1991 for the MSX by Microcabin. Never localized. Its graphics are extremely advanced for the time and it remains one of the more technologically-demanding games ever produced on the MSX. I'd like to do the page myself, but I'm new here and I'm not certain about the notability requirements.
- I'm not certain it meets notability requirements, but it was an incredibly lavish game for the time as well as having a very mature cyberpunk-themed story. I think it richly deserves the article. I'm just not sure how/if to go about it. Tien Ren (talk) 23:33, 14 October 2011 (UTC)

- Super Metroid: Redesign - a popular ROMhack of the well-known game Super Metroid, created by drewseph.
- Extremely borderline notable, see this (the writer has pieces on PC World, Macworld etc.), this (Patrick Dugan, quoted in Games TM re indie game), this (same author as the Vintage Computing piece). I'm not sure it's worth creating this if nobody can find any more sources, may well get shot down. Someoneanother 19:44, 26 February 2012 (UTC)
- I'd say -- notable enough to be mentionned in Super Metroid but not on its own. :) ·Salvidrim!· ✉ 14:54, 30 June 2013 (UTC)
- Blast Monkeys - a physics-based puzzle game for mobile platforms (more info at http://www.yobonja.com/)
- Monty's Maze - a classic game from... Some year I don't know which one. It was actually a few games within one, like Exploding Bannanas.
- Exploding Bannanas - a classic game probably from the 80s or 90s, where two people take in turns choosing the angle and speed at which two Monkeys shoot Bannanas at each-other. It might've been a DOS Game, although it was probably a Windows 95/98 Game.
- Monkey Brains - an old game made by Arush Entertainment where you control a lot of Monkeys in their quest to... Do something. More info can be found here.

- White Day: A Labryinth Named School - a korean survival horror PC video game released in Korea in 2001. It was scheduled for a release in the UK in 2004 and then to be released in the US soon after. Unfortunately, the company went bankrupt due to illegal downloads of the game spreading on the internet. Because of this, the game has many bugs, and the English translation patch isn't very good. The plot consists of a young boy that the player controls, sneaking into his school at night to leave chocolates for the girl he likes (White Day is a similar occasion to Valentines Day), named So Young. He also sneaks in to return her diary. As he enters, he runs into two of his classmates, two female students who exchange ghost stories in the hallway. It's not until an alarm goes off, that things take a turn for the worst. The player finds out that this school is incredibly haunted by dead students, raging ghouls, and a crazed janitor who chases the player and kills other students with a bat. This point and click survival horror has a very intense atmosphere, and the player will be repeatedly thrown into very dangerous environments. The player must solve puzzles, hide from enemies, run from danger, and quickly roam from room to room of the labryinth like school. If caught by the janitor, you are brutally clubbed to death. There are many obstacles that stand in your way. This game also features lots of decision making, as conversations with other students can change the storyline based on the players choices. The plot thickens, as you start to learn more and more about this mysterious So Young, and the death of her sister. The other students are very wary of her and don't trust anyone associated with her, even you. So gaining the trust of the other students is key. [ Sadly, there isnt much information about this game, and by creating this article, I hope more people can add to the mystery of this game. It's a decent title and deserves a page.]
- Can't find any reliable sources for this, though being a slightly older game I'm happy to give it the benefit of the doubt and let others look. Samwalton9 (talk)
- The article on this game on ko.wikipedia (ko:화이트데이 (게임)) is pretty detailed and has refs like Gamespot articles that are at least borderline according to our RS board. The full name of the game in Korean is "화이트데이: 학교라는 이름의 미궁" in case anyone wants to look for Korean RSes. -Thibbs (talk) 20:53, 31 August 2013 (UTC)
- Kompu gacha - Free to Play revenue model, popular in Japan. Users buy virtual goods, and then combine them together to get a rarer good (similar to TF2 hats, but more exploitative). When the Japanese consumer affairs agency announced it could constitute an illegal lottery, GREE, Inc. and DeNA lost billions off their market capitalization - that's billions of US$ not JPY, it's that big. I don't know enough about the Japanese industry, or any Japanese to do a decent write up of the article. I don't even know if that name is transliterated correctly, or where the best place for the article is. We should have something on this though. 
- Can't find info on this, but as with some others it's kinda old, might need to look in magazines. Samwalton9 (talk) 12:51, 28 June 2013 (UTC)

I propose that Wikipedia compile a complete list of Black female video game main characters. Heroine or villain, all black female characters that are playable should be on this list. I wanted to give some links and you mentioned IGN so I Googled my query there and all it led to was ign.com's surprisingly hostile and prejudiced forum so no help there. "Shaniqua's baby mama drama"? Really? WOW. So I can't provide links but from time to time gaming sites WILL make a list of Black characters and Wikipedia has lists of Black characters for comics so this is definitely the kind of article Wikipedia would do. I found one article that listed characters I've never heard of including Vazaelle Kaleine, Kate Allen and Catalina Thorne so perhaps Wikipedia could do us a favor and compile a list of all the Black female video game main characters ever because Wikipedia is the encyclopedia of just about everything and having a complete list here would be helpful and educational. It's important to note that the article I mentioned that listed characters I've never heard of was written by an Italian woman. That was nice of her, huh?

Keep in mind that Dream Build Play is not the same as Microsoft XNA, and with the article the winners should be showcased, many which are notable developers in the Indie Game community.

Featuring a score by an emmy-nominated composer, Concursion has been featured in Eurogamer, Kotaku, USGamer, and in a full page article of June's issue of PCGamer.
