Custom artwork by Mikey, just another of the great benefits of being a member of Dtoid UK! Also yes I do actually own that hoodie. I post this partly because it's FREAKING AWESOME and also because the closest thing I've come to playing a game this last week has been dicking about (not literally, not yet anyway) in Second Life. I know, I'm kinda ashamed of it too. Turns out that....thing is a lot more bearable if you have something of a tour guide though. I'm not quite comfortable enough to go in there alone yet though. Last time I was left alone I nearly got raped by a rabbit.

Oh yeah, if you want to see the other Dtoid UK peeps Mikey's drawn (he's doing one everyday) then look at the gallery of them here. Currently featuring Halfleft, Darkandroid, Nikmunroe, n0brein, Gemsi, ThePhil, Anus McPhanus, Young Scot and myself. Until tomorrow when he adds another one. I think it's Malcor next.

Also if you like the idea of dungeon crawlers but hate their horrific learning curve then I recommend a little indie game that got an excellent update recently called Desktop Dungeons. It's basically a full roguelike where games can be completed within 5-10 minutes. Also try Spelunky if you haven't already, because it's fucking Spelunky.

I'm really freaking tired as well, so please bear that in mind reading these.

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.
