Infobox non-game at Wikipedia

A less commonly used infobox, it is meant for general software that is related to games in some manner (ex. DOSBox).

Note that it is far more sparse then the game infobox in terms of information provided to the reader. No specialized row templates are used for this infobox, instead it borrows a few templates from the game infobox.

  • {{Infobox game}} - the main template this is based on.
  • {{Infobox software}} - related template that supports more parameters from the original infobox game template.

Parameter Description
title Optional. Add if game title is stylized in some way and therefore varies from page name.
cover Only include this if a cover for this game is present on the wiki or on Wikimedia Commons. The contents of this line should be just the filename, excluding the namespace.
website Add the full URL of the official site from either the original developer or the current rights holder. Do not include store pages.
developers All information included under this argument must be related to developers and porters of the particular game.

Possible rows include:

{{Infobox game/row/developer|1|2}} - This row defines Property:Developed by.
  1. The first argument should contain the name of the developer.
  2. The second, if necessary, a subtitle as to what the developer was responsible for.
release dates All information included under this argument must be related to release dates of the game.

Possible rows include:

{{Infobox game/row/date|1|2}}
  1. The first argument defines the OS the date is related to. Possible options include:
  2. The second argument should specify the date the game was released on the system in question.
  • The date must be in a valid format to be recognized ("21 February 2001", "February 21, 2001", "2001", "February 2001"), or a recognized special state such as "TBA", "EA", "Unknown", "Likely cancelled", or "Cancelled". See the Editing Guide for more information.
  • Correctly using the property (that is, with the appropriate OS name) will result in the appropriate categories being automatically placed on the page.
  • Regional release dates should never be listed. Only ever list the relevant OS release date, always choosing the earliest it was made available in any region on that specific platform. Similarly, release dates for digital distribution services should also be ignored.
wikipedia The name (not the full URL) of the Wikipedia page for the game. The Wikipedia favicon will appear when it's defined.
