LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 5/30/09 + SilverDragonisms

   0

For those of you who don't know, today is my 1-year Dtoid anniversary. Yep that's right, I have officially been a part of this community for 1 year. I don't know if any of you ever read my very first post where I introduced myself, but it was pretty bad. You can read it if you like, but let me warn you that I pretty much broke every single rule ever written about how to properly write a proper Cblog introduction blog. I had no clue what I was doing at the time, I hadn't read the rules, and I basically sucked. I have definitely come a long way since then huh. Well to celebrate my 1-year anniversary, I finally wrote an actual introduction blog today. Feel free to check it out if you care to learn a little bit about me and my love for video games. You might even learn something that will shock and/or fascinate you. Who knows.

Before I begin my recaps, I would just like to take a second to thank everyone who has helped make all my experiences here at Destructoid so memorable. A community is only as good as the people who it's made up of, and let me tell you that the people in the Dtoid community are what make it so incredible. Thanks for a great year everyone. Now it's time to begin my second year.

It's also time to begin Saturday's 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.
