The TVRS Wiki is the official wiki based on PHIA's YouTube channel and Twitch streams centering on The Virtual Reality Show, or TVRS for short.

Overview

The wiki was started on June 14, 2020 by Krayfishkarl alongside EXXOmixin, one of TVRS' video editors. It aims to be an in-depth information repository on the topics covered in TVRS, the culture of the TVRS community, collaborations that PHIA and TVRS have been involved in, and any major influences of TVRS. The wiki would be officially announced to the public at the 10k VRChat meetup on June 28, 2020 while its first appearance in the TVRS main series was in the episode OCULUS RIFT S vs VALVE INDEX : Is it Worth the Upgrade? released on July 27, 2020.
