Cblog recaps 10/18/08 + Randombullisms

First: A big thanks to Yojmbo for making this awesome header. Nice work.

Second: A big thanks to Podtoid for letting me make Bonerquest. What was once a joke, now is a crummy world of plot holes and spelling errors. No really. I've outlined the majority of the game and actually have some things ready. My big concerns right now are the design of the monsters keeping with 8-bit look and of course living up the hype of Bonerquest itself. If anyone would like to test play it in a few days, that would be really awesome. Soon as I'm done recapping its back to work on Bonerquest.

A snippet of dialog from a towns person.

"You look like a man on a quest! Oh you need help with a boner. I can't help you with boners."

Did I miss the failure today? I always ask myself "Did I miss a post?" So if I missed a post, that's your failure for today. I worry if I erase things by accident as well or if I'm putting things in the wrong sections. Almost failed a few things, but I guess I was feeling nice today. I won't be so kind tomorrow night.



Back to Bonerquest talk! Hooray!

What music should be put in Bonerquest?

What do you like/dislike about role playing games? I'd like to know so I can have a better idea of what people want and don't want in Bonerquest.

What do you expect from Bonerquest?

Why does every question end in Bonerquest?

Will you accept the Bonerquest?

No seriously, that's the tag line. "Will you accept the Bonerquest?"

That's it for Saturday's recaps!

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.
