Whew! It's been a few months. Seems the core recap team hasn't needed to call on reservists too much, and when they do the always eager newer reservists immediately scoop up the opportunities. They're always so adorable before the world crushes their spirit. <3

Hello once again my lovely Dtoiders! I hope you have been taking care of yourselves, and each other. Have you been watching much of the Olympics? I have, and it's been a real treat to see so many fellow Canadians do so well. Although next time it would be appreciated if the men's hockey team wouldn't give us all a heart attack. That was one stressful game to watch. :)

Other than that nothing much to say really. While on government assistance my life has been rather dull sad to say, and I am still struggling with the motivation to move on... HOWEVER! I am playing and greatly enjoying Deadly Premonition! I just have to listen to my coffee more... and start drinking coffee so I can listen to it.

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.
