LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 5/20/09 + Magnalonology

   0

Welcome welcome faithful bloggers, to Magnalon's first recap. I hope I do a decent job, as day in and day out; I’m thoroughly impressed with the majority of the blogs written here, so I wanted to give something back.

If I had one piece of advice, it would be to “make sure you welcome people in their intro posts”. Also, “don’t be so hard on ThinkGeek, self. You know you love their caffeine mints, the cute monkey, and the fact that they started up in your hometown”.

Today was kind of a random day. I had off from work, then promptly realized I had no Lost to look forward to, or Chuck to catch up on. Is there anything on TV worth watching right now? I’m trying to get into Southland but I’ve been hearing mixed reviews, and Better Off Ted has gotten pretty meh.

Oh! Whether you like it or not, you will be shamelessly forced to check out a power metal song each night that I'm on duty, so get used to it!


*-There's been a lot of "oh I remember this game!" going on lately in the cblogs. Half Left gladly brings it back, and excitedly tells us to play Toonstruck: like right f’ing now.

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.
