LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 1/31/09 + SilverDragonisms

   0

So the other day I wrote a little post I entitled 10 Things You Don't Know about Dragons. The idea was to tell you some things about myself in an attempt for the community to get to know me better. In my post I mentioned how it would be great if other members of the community could create the same type of post. Pretty much I was calling on the community members to reach out and try and get to know each other better. So far a couple of people have actually followed suit and written their own "10 things you don't know about me" posts. I've listed some of them below in the "topsauce" section.

I am calling on everyone in the community who reads this Cblog Recap to sit down tomorrow, on Super Bowl Sunday, and write their own "10 Things you don't know about me" post. Anyone who does, and takes it seriously, will be featured in tomorrow's "topsauce" section. The best part of this community is the people who are in it, and I think it would be great if we could all get to know each other a little better.

Ok now time for the 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.
