HAPPY NEW YEAR! Holy crap. It's going to be the same stuff, yet somehow worse again! Anyways, did all see that awesome article that Smurfee put together (feat. art by ChillyBilly)? IT WAS ABOUT YOU GUYS. Yes, yes, we all loves yous heathens. Alright, this is going to be short and sweet. I'm doing Smurfee's and all my own caps.



Before I go though. If you even sort of like survival games, are curious, or just dig the art, buy Don't Starve off of Steam. You get 2 copies right now, due to it still being in beta, but already it's packed with content and features and just keeps getting better. Oh and it's updated every two weeks on the dot, usually. Alright, I'm done pimping my newest obsession. HAPPY EFFIN NEW YEAR! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Alright folks, I know the past two weeks was the holidays and stuff. i know we have all been busy as hell. But I've noticed a lot of good stuff, not getting love here in the c-blogs. I know disqus is a cunt on mobiles. I know we can't fap from some mobiles as well. But we have to support each other or great writers and folks are going to disappear thinking we don't appreciate their hard work. Fap and if you can't or don't think it deserves it, comment. I was thinking about this already and then read TellEmOff88TellEmOff's intro and decided to dedicate my last section to it. Let's do a better job from here on out and into 2013. Let's make the C-Blogs the best place on Dtoid. Oh, wait.... WE ALREADY ARE! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. But seriously, support each other. Happy New Year, my loves. Oh and sorry about the crappy formatting. It's too late and I'm too intoxicated to care! Boosh!

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
Crowdfunded

It feels like it's been a decade since we've seen the rise of the crowdfunded game. I'm always surprised when I remind myself that crowdfunding has been a thing long before the first crowdfunded video game, but nowadays a crowdfunded game seems like a dime a dozen.

Of course such a phrase is an incredible disservice to some of the great games that have come out thanks to websites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo. Games like FTL, Shovel Knight, and even Undertale are around thanks to crowdfunding; thanks to people gathering around and literally putting their money where their mouth is, a game they want gets funded and inevitably the greater landscape of gaming benefits from it. Most of the time the landscape gets to benefit from it anyways.

Don't worry though, this month's bloggers wanted prompt isn't an exploratory thesis on the effects of crowdfunding on video game development. We just want you to talk about your favorite games, as long as they were crowdfunded. This topic can be simultaneously broad and narrow, because you can talk about whatever game you want, however you want, as long as it was crowdfunded.
For me, FTL is the original crowdfunded game, and it was great. It was somehow minimalist and incredibly detailed at the same time, and it was all done because a man wanted to do it, but needed the money, and thousands of other people wanted to see where his idea would go. Shovel Knight to me feels like this natural evolution of the classic 8-bit gaming of yore without also throwing myself back to a time when gaming was honestly comparatively archaic. And everyone's talked to death about Undertale, so we all know where I'd go with that.

To participate in this month's bloggers wanted, just start a blog! Oh, and title it "Crowdfunded: [your blog title here]." I bet this month is going to be pretty diverse, since it's basically writing about your favorite crowdfunded game. So I hope to hear about some good games revisited or amazing games no one has heard about.

Remember: Persona 5 was not crowdfunded, but excuse me as I plow through it.
