WildTangent (partially found PC/online games; 1999-2007)


WildTangent (PC/web games)

Status Partially Found

WildTangent was a PC/web game company founded in 1998 by Alex St. John.

WildTangent used to develop their own original games, sometimes to advertise various companies, TV and movies. Most of the WildTangent titles were discontinued and have become lost.

Technology

In order to play WildTangent games, the user would have to install WildTangent Web Driver and Microsoft Java Virtual Machine. Java would need to be uninstalled in case it blocks these games from running.

The games had online and offline versions, but the online versions no longer function.

The reason they discontinued their games is unknown. However, they were criticized because their games contain spyware and required anybody to constantly buy more WildCoins.

Most of WildTangent games were all stored in GIT type system/source safe so no one needed personal copies.

Availability of Games

Most discontinued WildTangent games are no longer available for purchase, but some can still be downloaded from other distributors or anybody who has the installer backed up. The list of games that are lost and found can be viewed below.

Yes, I was the one who upload the video gameplay of Corolla Joy Ride broken game. I got the broken copy of that game from someone named Albert Ocampo https://albe...ojects/20092, and he used to work at Saatchi & Saatchi for Toyota and I contact him of that game and he has the broken copy of that game and that's all he has and he don't have anything else in there. But unfortunately, I could not find the download copy of that game and I believe the files of that game are missing. So that's why I can't add it on the list. And could not find anybody who has the original game. The only way which isn't easy to contact was to contact Travis Baldree http://www.b...e_resume.pdf, but he did not respond to me back at all by email, and the best bet was to contact him by phone to see if he can respond, and to ask him if he has the download version of that game.

Oh okay, that makes sense. It's a shame these games have become lost. I'll try to look for anything I can in terms of the games. Hopefully they can be found.

I don't remember if they make adver game from that movie. Just to let you know. WildTangent stopped making adver games probably in 2007 or possibly later. Also the movie Hop was release in 2011. Unfortunately, WildTangent no longer doing adver games. So I'm assuming WT have no interest in adver game business.

I remember playing this 3rd perspective 3d wizard game. The memories are so vague, but there was a cave to the right side of the map, with lots of bats, that drained your health. It MIGHT be Fate. Hey. Could someone update this article to include Fate and many other games from https://en.w...angent_games

Unfortunately, I don't know if I could add current WT games on the list. Because some WildTangent games are still available from WT site. I'm only focusing on discontinued/lost WildTangent games, if I find any. If some games are removed from WT site, then I will add it on the list. Are you sure you want me to add current WildTangent games from the list?

Right now he is still busy at the moment. If he has more time to do that, I'll let you all know if he comes up with anything.

Even though it's a long shot I'll check the archived version of the websites of the ones based off movies. I love the movie A Knight's Tale and I would love to find the game as well.

Well I only find that game here https://web-...r+a+username.

Unfortunately, due to the system WildTangent uses, it needs to login and to connect online. Got it from the information here http://www.i...ale-by-email. And that game is called A Knights Tale Tournament. But sadly, the login will not work and that game is no longer available to play.

For now I'm gonna focus on Island Heads since it's easier for me to focus on one game at a time. According the creator of it, it was never released alone, it came with other WildTangent games, so it's possible it would be with an existing installer.

I don't know if he can reply or not by email. I tried to comment him from his page, but he ignored my comment and my comment was removed. I would suggest you to contact him at Twitter https://twitter.com/faustlogic and to ask him that if he has Island Heads, and I would suggest you to ask him if he has the copy of Medabots Robattle 3D game also. Unsure if he can respond.

If anyone has a way of finding and sharing Pigpen, that would be absolutely wonderful. That game was my childhood and it would be a lovely surprise for my grandmother. We were both really sad when the game was no longer playable and have tried to find it for years.

Here is the Pigpen game that I upload it https://mega...6OCUGNm7W_zI, since a handful of people asking of that game. And you would need to use Windows XP or other old Windows to get that game working, it won't work for newer Windows. And you would need to install Microsoft JVM that I upload it https://mega...349t73b96vGI, and make sure Java is uninstalled, so that it won't block that game from running it. Also Jackedup447 from YouTube, he might get old WT games working again on modern day system to work for new computers, as what I said before. As of now, unsure when he will get to it.

I remember playing a demo for a SpongeBob game back in 2009-2011. I don't remember the name, but you played as SpongeBob going around in a maze while killing enemies to get to the end. My memory of it is cloudy so I may be wrong
