LONG BLOG

C Blogs of 04/01/13 + smurfoolisms

   0

Well aren't you a spunky bunch today? Between celebrating St. Fool's canonization and Dtoid going Redditoid, y'all seemed to be having quite a larf. With the day winding down, and the delicious half-price Easter candy tempting us all, let's have a rest and a reflect on what this day is really about. I don't know what that is, but someone might. Reflect on that very likely half-assumption.

I was kept fairly busy with the CAPS, partially because there were more blogs than usual, and partially because it was hard to keep track of them, because of Redditoid's stupid voting thingy. Shit jumpin' around and whatnot. So I haven't had a lot of time to think about isms. I played some games, but really, I've just been meditating on the MGSV trailer and playing that Garbage song over and over. Extraordinary people.
I don't know what I'd do without Kojima. Well, I do, but I will still be sad. Perhaps one of the most important people in the gaming industry ever. Anywhere ever.
April fools?

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.
