LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 2/1/09 + SilverDragonisms

   0

Let me just say, that today was an absolutely crazy day to do the recaps, thanks to all the "10 things you don't know about me" blogs that everyone wrote. I guess I can't really complain though, seeing as how I brought this upon myself. What can I say, I'm a gluten for punishment. I was originally going to list all of them in this recap, but there were just so many that I decided to create a separate recap. You can check the entire list out here.

One thing that a day like today helps me realize, is how awesome the Destructoid community really is. It also makes me realize how badly I want to go to PAX '09 to finally meet you all for the first time. I was thinking I could tag along with Yojimbo, since we would both be flying out of the same airport in Raleigh, NC. I haven't discussed this with him yet though. What do you say Yojimbo? Would you be up for some company on the trip? I promise to take all the tequila shots you want me to take, which I can only imagine will be a ton.

Well ... let's get on with today's recaps shall we ...

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.
