Pyramid Arcade[edit source]

They called it Pyramid Arcade, and it shipped to customers in late 2016. Check it out if you haven't already, and start playing and designing games with all of these great new components!
Rebirth of the wiki[edit source]
Due to some technical issues with upgrading MediaWiki, the software for this wiki had not been upgraded in years. Eventually, upgrades of PHP on the web host led to the wiki to stop working entirely.
After some consideration, we have done a dump and restore of just the latest version of all pages; this loses all history and all user accounts, but preserves the content of the wiki. The old wiki is still available read-only to browse the history at https://www.icehousegames.org/old-wiki/.
If you had an account on the old wiki, you will need to re-create it on this wiki. The actual user pages are preserved, so once you create your account you should get your old user page back. Note that there's nothing stopping someone else from creating an account with your old user name; apologies for that.
Current Contests[edit source]
Game Infobox Redesign[edit source]
Can you help us improve our venerable infobox, Template:Infobox Game? The new infobox should have available the list of parameters shown on Talk:Infobox, although it doesn't need to use all of them. See Talk:Infobox for the discussion.
