What&#039;s This About
This is about PC Metroidvanias, Metroidvania-esques, and sometimes miscellaneous viddya things that I think you will enjoy.
Don’t like the word Metroidvanias? Hate the word Metroidvanias? Does the sight of the word Metroidvanias make you retch?
You and your video game racism are welcome here too.
In The Beginning
It started with this thread on G+ in which I got huffy about a A Valley Without Wind, and the implication that PC has no Metroidvanias.
I started collecting PCMVs in a .txt for a few months, and then moved from .txt to this Google Drive spreadsheet. The Spreadsheet was published as a public resource for people to find new games or copy and paste into their own databases and sites.
Year 1: 2013 - 2014
- 700 posts, of which around 320 represent games that are in development, released, or (unfortunately) abandoned
- 600+ followers, of which all have nice hair
- Introduced a Twitter feed that parrots whatever gets posted on tumblr
- Awarded commendations to Guacamelee!, Valdis Story, and Inescapable
Year 2: 2014 - 2015
- Solicited followers to give me a logo. Two did: Sophie from PineappleMachine and Christopher from Vidboy
- Introduced a Facebook feed that is sometimes updated (sorry) via a Python script
