We have formed this task force of WikiProject Video games to better organize information in articles related to adventure games and interactive fiction. We want to cover the areas of games, game series, technologies specific to the genre, companies who produced adventures games, and significant fan games and groups. This page contains our suggestions; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians. If you would like to help, please inquire on the talk page and/or see the to-do list.

There are already numerous articles on adventure games on Wikipedia, of varying levels of quality and depth, from in-depth articles such as Sierra On-Line down to stubs of the lowest quality. This project seeks to marshal the efforts of interested editors to improve and unify these articles and to raise the overall standard of adventure game coverage on Wikipedia. For more information on WikiProjects, please see Wikipedia:WikiProject and Wikipedia:WikiProject Council/Guide.

Issue #1, February 27, 2012
Let's Go!

The future of the Adventure games WikiProject wasn't looking bright for the last couple of months... until now. Since the Adventure games WikiProject moved to a Video game taskforce, quite a few people added themselves to the members list, and there was quite a lot of activity. So, we decided to make a monthly Adventure games magazine! In this first issue we will give You an update on the status of our taskforce, a poll, and a Exclusive article on our beloved Monkey Island!
