It was pointed out to me on Slack that the Defold Wikipedia article is a redirect to King (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Defold). Defold should really have its own webpage, just like Godot, Unity and GameMaker.
The problem is that anyone working for the Defold Foundation or King has a conflict of interest and we can’t create the page. The page about Defold must also have what Wikipedia calls notability, meaning that for something to warrant a page it must have references in literature and on the internet from other sources than defold.com.
So, this is a request for help from the community to create the Defold Wikipedia article. The three most active editors will receive Defold swag and/or keys to Defold games on Steam and Nintendo Switch.
For the 2016 launch announcement there’s a ton of news articles. Some examples:
