Cblog Recaps of 04/02/14 and KERBISMS

   0


After enjoying quite a few games on Steam with my new laptop, my library has grown exponentially. Steam sales are an addiction unto themselves, enabling me to buy so many games at slashed prices. But of course, I'm talking as if this is new. You all probably are all used to this Steam nonsense. In fact, you guys probably have a resistance built up over the years. Me on the other hand? I'm not sure what will happen to me when the Steam Summer Sale rolls around. Oh my god am I not ready to face that.

In the short time I've officially started Steam, I've bought...

- Mercenary Kings
- Kerbal Space Program (-40%)
- Luftrausers (-10%)
- Volgarr the Viking (-25%)
- Humble Indie PC & Android bundle ($5)
- Humble Destructoid bundle ($10)
- FFVII (-60%)
- Eryi's Action (-60%)
plus everything I'd already bought before I had a decent PC in preparation for such a moment like...

- Prison Architect
- Humble Indie bundle 3
- Terrariia
- TF2
- Portal
- L4D[2]

Not only that, but I'm obsessed with collecting Steam cards. I'm finally one card away from crafting my first legit badge for FTL. Plus I've stockpiled badges for Prison Architect, TF2, KSP, and Hotline Miami.



Speaking of Hotline Miami, I of course owned it before the Dtoid bundle came out (-60% sale). I've got a spare code up for grabs if you happen to not have that game yet. If you want it, follow me on twitter (@Striderhoang) if you want. Mainly comment here if you want it with a number choice (for RNG purposes) and the name of a spaceship I should dub  one of my future KSP ships.

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.
