Unfortunately Garison can not bring you your regularly scheduled recaps this evening, so I will be filling in for him instead. I kind of owe him one since he covered for me all of last weekend when I was stuck at work and couldn't do the recaps. Yes let's talk about last weekend shall we. Actually let's talk about the last two weeks. I put in around 140 hours at work the last two weeks, including all of last weekend, in order to meet a huge project deadline. After all that hard work I had actually managed to not only meet my schedule, but to exceed it, so I was in a great mood. Then I got to work today and my manager informed me that last night a meeting was held in which the entire project was CANCELED!!!

Suffice to say, I was not in the best of moods the rest of the day. If only you could have seen the look on my face when my manager told me. My jaw just dropped like a rock. I decided at that point that it was probably best I take the rest of the day off, so I went home at noon and spent the rest of the day playing Beyond Good & Evil. That managed to cheer me up, but I'm still pretty bummed. I essentially spent the last 14 days straight waking up, working 14 hours, and then going to bed. Luckily for me I love my job, but still. No one wants to put in that much hard work only to have it all completely thrown away. Ok that's enough for now. Let me step down from my soap box.

Let's get to the Friday recaps shall we ...

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.
