LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 01/30/09 + Garisonisms

Hello everyone. Welcome to Garison's first Cblog recap EVER! You guys really have no idea how excited I am to be doing the friday recaps, for some reason, I just like doing really repetitive copy/pasta sorting links kind of work. Usually, the recappers usually write a funny/embarrasing story about happenings in their daily lives to kind of entertain you, but really, I have nothing.

WAIT! Forget that last thought. I went to check the mail today, and what do I find waiting for me? My copy of Ico has finally arrived! On a shopping trip to the city in August, I found this totally rad import gaming store, and I ended up spending like $600 on games, one of the games I bought was a second hand copy of Ico. I brought it home, and much to my dismay, the game was broken. I sent it back, they sent me a new one, it got lost in the mail, I called them back a month later, and now I FINALLY get to play this masterpiece. But that gets put of for now for much more important things, like the Cblog Recaps!

[Edit: Also, if I forgot anyone's blog, please tell me in the comments so I can fix ASAP.]

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.
