I'm going to be filling in for Phil this Weekend. Hey Destructoid what's up? I'm at a fork in a road as of recently. I just graduated from community college and I'm still not entirely sure what I want to do. I'm going to be 22 soon (January 1st), and it finally is sinking in now that I'm becoming an adult. My brother is about to be a father to his first child in the next month, the sister closest to my age is now engaged and after she does all of my 4 siblings will be married. My parents are getting older and I can see their age. I really thought that audio engineer was where I wanted to be, but after I got a C in my Studio Recording Class this semester I realized that it's just not for me (I'm usually an A student) just didn't have that spark. Before that I was set on going to film school, and although I'm pretty good at film making I just lost passion for it. Right now what I'm planning on doing is getting a job, and seriously attempting to write a visual novel. I'm not really worried, but I guess I am sort of scared to see what happens in my future. It's just sort of life I guess you try things out they don't always work so you try something different. I'll figure out my path eventually.

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
Changes

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.
