Okay, everyone. Today's recap test community member game thingy is extra challenging today, not because it is hard to figure out, just because of my terrible touch pad mouse skills. Anyway, rules are, try to guess what Dtoid community member is depicted in the above MS Paint picture, and first person to leave the correct answer in the comments is automatically the winrar!

I used to own a copy of Final Fantasy VI for the SNES, but due to stupidity on my part, I sadly lost the game (aka sold it for $5 to some kid). Years later, after discovering the internet, I learn that it is one of the best RPG's of all time, so of course I have to go out and buy another copy on eBay. Well I got my $40 copy in the mail -- along with the instruction booklet XD -- and I have yet to play it. I played Puzzle Figher with the Retroforce crew last night, and today I played a heck of a lot of Paper Mario on the N64, but right when I finish that game, I can't wait to start the classic. God I'm dying here.

I also got a new avatar. I got a hair cut, and dyed it a crazy colour, so I decided to just change my avatars for everything, too. But who cares about that, on to the recaps! :D -------------------------------->

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.
