LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 1/7/09 + SilverDragonisms

   0

So let me just say that today was not only a depressing day in the world of gaming, it was also a very depressing day to read the Cblogs. This is, of course, all related to the recent news of the demise of both 1UP, EGM, and a large amount of it's employees who are now jobless. I was personally very much affected when I heard the news. I have been reading EGM for over a decade now, ever since i was a teenager. I still have an annual subscription, which I have been more then happy to pay for year after year. I can't tell you the joy I get when I open my mailbox and discover a new issue has arrived. That is a feeling I will no longer get to experience, since after this month an EGM will never come to my house ever again. If that is not a horrifyingly empty feeling, I don't know what is.

I would just like to say goodbye to EGM and 1UP. You will be missed by many .... :-(

Typically I start off my recaps with an image of a dragon, but I thought it would be more suitable today to start off with an image of the very first EGM ever printed ....

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.
