Telltale Games Wiki?

posted by RAnthonyMahan on - last edited - Viewed by 139 users

I was looking through the Homestar Runner Wiki, and I really liked the pages they had for Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People. They not only have walkthroughs which explain how to both beat the game and get maximum awesomeness, but (mostly) complete response pages that list the various lines of dialogue in the game.

I was wondering if it would be feasible to have a wiki like that for Telltale in general? Discuss their various games, characters, staff et cetera, and have similar walkthrough/response pages. (Maybe explain how to get every achievement/trophy in the games that have them...)

How would people feel about this idea if it happened? I don't have any plans to start such a wiki myself (while I've played quite a bit of Telltale, I'm not exactly an expert on all their games. And besides, I'm awful at coding :p), but it'd be nice to hear if people like the concept.

  • It might be weird considering in addition to the Homestar Runner wiki, there's a maintained Sam & Max Wiki, Monkey Island Wiki, etc, with info abut Telltale's games.

    If people want to make a TTG wiki they should be more than welcome to though!

  • Yeah, I'm not sure why I would visit or contribute to a Telltale wiki if all the information is well taken care of by license-specific wikis. And filling out wiki pages with all available info on Telltale employees would get uncomfortably close to stalking. A fanpage with some basic info and appropriate links to existing wikis would make more sense.
    Now if Telltale starts to do seasons based on its own IP, that would be a different matter..

    Well, I didn't mean staff pages getting really in-detail with stuff like "The color of Jared Emerson-Johnson's favorite pair of underwear is..." Just like a brief write-up of what they do, which games they've been involved in and how, and maybe any notable non-Telltale projects they've been involved with. Stuff like that is fairly standard procedure for fiction-based wikis. Have some examples. And they wouldn't need to be as detailed as those, either.
