Hello my lovely dtoiders! <3

You might have noticed that these are the weekend recaps, and might be wondering why they're up on a Tuesday. Well our usual weekend recapper SilverDragon wasn't able to do it over the weekend, but none of the other reservists were available. Why it's done on a Tuesday is because I was in New Jersey over the weekend trying to visit a friend and hanging out with many of the NJ/NYC dtoiders. :D

Typical weekend trip really. Typical good times, typical misunderstandings, typical drunkenness. Played beer pong for the first time, and of course it was with a "bro" who took it way too seriously. Managed to get a cheap fightstick for the 360 finally. Played an epic Sailor Moon brawler, and watched people play Double Dragon: The Movie: The Game. OH, and I also played Samba De Amigo on arcade!

Of course the hilights were the time I spent with people. Killing time playing some games with Tino, playing some co-op Splinter Cell and KoF; spending most of Friday with Val running errands and seeing the sights; going to Digital Press with Tino, Andy, Chelsea, and Elliot... times like these are the real reason I do most of my travelling. <3

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
Changes

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.
