Another week, another double dose of me all over your face! Big happenings this past week! Infinite Bits landed in Miami this past weekend and I hit it up on Saturday. I'm a bit disappointed that I couldn't make it on Friday to check out the Destructoid weird games panel. I had hoped that some of the crew would show on the following day so I could say hello, but the only person who appeared was Rey and I didn't want to interrupt him as he was busy filming and getting biznis done.

The rest of the show was pretty bitchin'. Ben Heck was there talking about his mad genius modding skills. Billy Mitchell was all smooth and shit. Egoraptor was Egoraptor, which is to say he was AWESOME! LIKE, OHMYGOD! HOTNESS! I WANNA BANG YOU! Finally, there was Doug Walker, a.k.a. The Nostalgia Critic. Cool guy. He's got a new video coming up and when it drops I'm gonna talk about it.

Of course, the big draw was the games. There was a slew of games spanning every console EVAR, but I found myself being drawn back to the big widescreen where a massive game of Saturn Bomberman was going down. Seriously, you guys, ten-player Bomberman is, like, the best game ever. No denyin'. I need to get myself a Saturn, a copy of that game, and nine other people. That stuff is dope.

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.
