Very slow day today. I'm also quite disappointed by the percentage of today's output that was pure fail. When are you guys gonna learn that it is not cool to simply copy-paste your articles wholesale from other sites? This community deserves more effort than that!

So the bookkeeping thing is no longer happening. I arrived Monday to a room three students, one of whom left an hour before class ended. Now, I thought I did a decent job presenting the material, but the ditcher did not. I received an email from her the following day complaining about how it seemed as though I had only recently learned the material. I found myself agreeing with everyone one of her complaints. It didn't dawn on me until then, but these people paid money to take this class to help them with their small businesses. I'd feel terrible if I accidentally fed them inaccurate information. They expected an expert but got me instead.

I gave it a shot. Everyone will get their money back. I'd love to try my hand at a math or SAT prep course in the future, something that I'm more familiar with.

Anyway, slow day. As a treat, I give you Randy Solem's four-part epic Rise of the Mushroom Kingdom! Enjoy!

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.
