Welcome to the Sitekick Remastered Wiki!
This is a knowledge base of all things Sitekick and the Sitekick Remastered project. Maintained by the community, for the community.
What is a Sitekick?
A Sitekick is your very own personal robot friend! Sitekicks run on things called ‘Chips’. By installing different Chips, you can do all sorts of cool things with your Sitekick – like customising its appearance, trading with others, playing games and more.
'Remastered'? What happened to the original?
'Sitekick' was originally a game that overlayed the broader YTV.com website, an official online portal for the Canadian national children's broadcasting station of the same name. YTV premiered across the country on September 1st, 1988 and remains on the air today.
Sitekicks were originally implemented to the site in 2003 and finally removed in 2015 following legacy code issues. Despite this, Sitekicks are a source of significant nostalgia for many Canadian millennials, and this project aims to preserve knowledge and assets from this time, as well as develop a new full-featured version of the Sitekicks game.
