LONG BLOG

C Blogs of 7/10/10 and 7/11/10 + SilverDragonisms

   0

I don't have much to share with you all because the truth is I haven't played a video game in over a week. Instead I've been spending all my time reading Starcraft novels, getting caught up with the story for when Starcraft 2 comes out at the end of the month. In the last 5 weeks I've read 4 1/2 novels, and I hope to finish another 2 1/2 before the game comes out. You could say that I'm a little bit obsessed with Starcraft right now, don't ya think?

Besides that I don't really have much else to report. I guess I could mention that I'm selling my house and after being on the market for a little under 2 weeks, I finally have people coming to see it this week. Two different couples actually, so you could say I'm pretty damn excited. The housing market is complete shit right now, so if I could actually sell my house, I would be ecstatic. I know that's not video game related at all, but I thought you might like to know.

Let's get on with the weekend recaps shall we.

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.
