LONG BLOG

C Blogs of 15/02/11 + THE POWER IS MINE-ISMS

   0


Nascent plans like vapours have drifted long and far, coalescing with the steadied care of tempered ambition. The subtle discourse of gentle zephyrs has gathered these cottony plots, machinations wafting together on the breeze, slowly building to a furious storm head.

And now, now my surging multitude, my scurrying masses, the obstructions before me have evaporated, carrying me ever upwards in their wake. Here I float, above the modest earth, higher than the greediest mountain's peak. With all the boundless power at my stead, I look down on your piteous works and know that I am now forever beyond you. My laughter is the peal of thunder on the wind.

Cast your eyes skyward and know that your heavens were a lie. This world and everything in it is mine at last. Judgement is at hand. The tides of sorrow will wash upon your luckless shore.

Do you feel that? That cold, all-pervasive damp? That is the wild tempest of unending tears on which I soar. My reign has come at last.

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.
