LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 4/14/09 + Pendelton Whoring

   0


So, this is a repost of yesterday's blog, and yes I'm a whore, but, I wanna get as many entries as I can:

I'm calling on any and all Dtoid artists/doodlers/what-have-yous to come forth and give me tattoo designs. Basically, I'd like something small (no bigger than 5 inches...Jesus, how many times have I said that?*), and it has to be your interpretation of Mr. Destructoid's head. I have 2 designs I like so far, and I'm looking for more. Why? Well, once I have in a bunch of designs, I'm gonna have the community vote for which piece will be forever emblazoned on my hairy, goulish-white flesh. YES, YOU, THE COMMUNITY, WILL DETERMINE WHICH TATTOO I GET!

Here's how it's gonna work: anyone who wants to enter, send me a PM or an email (at pendelton21@gmail.com) with your piece of art. My favorite 5 pieces will go head-to-head in a community poll, where anyone in the community can vote on the winner. Said winner will not only get to revel in the fact that your art will be eternally etched onto me, but they'll also get a $20 PSN/360/Wii point card for their efforts.

All submissions MUST BE SENT IN by next Wednesday night at midnight. The winners will be posted, and the poll readied 2 weeks from today. So, be sure to come back and choose what I get tattooed on my body!!!

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.
