LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 2/21/09 + SilverDragonisms

   0

Welcome to another exciting Saturday recap here at Destructoid. I'm your host, SilverDragon, and today I will be taking you on your tour of the day's cblogs. Before we begin I would ask that you please buckle your safety belts, and please put all tray tables, seats, and video game controllers in their up and locked position. Please not that there is no smoking or flash photography allowed on this tour, but drinking of strong alcoholic beverages is strongly recommended. We hope you enjoy your tour. Thank you for choosing the Cblog Recaps.

Before we begin our tour, I thought you might like to know what you host, that being me, has been up to. Well I've spent the last week beating the first 15 bosses of Shadow of the Colossus. By this time tomorrow I hope to have beat the final boss and moved on to one of the other many games I have to play. All I have to say is this game was absolutely incredible, and I can't believe it took me this long to finally get around to playing it.

Now onto the recaps ...

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.
