Another week with not much to talk about in the 'caps. Sorry folks!

I've pretty much only been playing Animal Crossing and working all week. My house is coming along quite nicely in Animal Crossing. I finally got all the rooms built, and I just have to expand a few more of them before it's as big as possible. I think my favorite room is the upstairs bedroom, decorated with furniture from the Blue and Minimalist series along with some random Japanese things (dharmas, lucky cats), with a colorful Flower Pop wallpaper to make it stand out. I also have a room dedicated to the pirate theme furniture you get from Pascal (one of my favorite characters!) and a huge bathroom with multiple showers and toilets for some reason. I haven't quite figured out what to do with the other rooms yet, but they don't look too bad as they are now. 

I don't know why I find decorating virtual homes to be so much fun, but somehow I never get tired of it in games. It's why I played The Sims so much growing up. 

Anyway, that's really all I've got for this week. And it seems not too much was going on in the blogs today either. Buh...

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.
