You can fill in and add the following code into an article in order to generate a standardized "infobox":

{{gameinfo| name = 
|developer = 
|released = 
|updated = 
|status = 
|licensing = 
|language = 
|platforms = 
|genre = 
|interface = 
|site = 

Not all of the fields need to be filled in, but all of them should be included. Those that are not filled in will display as blanks on the infobox.


{{gameinfo| name = NetHack
|developer = [[The NetHack Dev Team]]
|released = 1987
|updated = 3.4.3 on Month 1st, 2003
|status = [[Stable]] 
|licensing = open source
|language = [[C]]
|platforms = Amiga, Atari, Linux, Mac, Msdos, OS/2, Windows, Windows CE
|genre = [[Fantasy]]
|interface = [[Graphical tiles]], [[ASCII]], Keyboard, limited mouse
|site = http://www.nethack.org/

...will add this box:

Genre Issue

The "genre" field isn't displayed - at least on my system (WinXP, FireFox 1.5) --Copx 22:54, 29 Sep 2005 (CEST)

I see that the 'genre' and 'feature' rows are commented in the template; is there any reason for this??? --Slash 23:02, 29 Sep 2005 (CEST)

They are hiding, and the instructions here are now outdated. They're easier to restore (if need be) if they're commented out. John Shedletsky and R brought up some points for and against them, so I'll be removing features and changing genre to theme. I'll also add influences and length.
