If you're interested in Nintendo's indie program, odds are you've heard of Nintendo of America's Head of Digital Content and Development Dan Adelman. He's the outspoken guy who is responsible for bringing many indie classics to the Wii U and 3DS eShop, who has gotten in trouble in the past with the Big N for speaking out against things like region locking.

Today, he dropped a rather huge bomb on his by way of his Twitter account -- "Happy to announce I reached an arrangement w/ @NintendoAmerica whereby I can tweet again. Arrangement includes my not working there anymore."

Well, that's an arrangement alright! Dan has already moved on as a "marketing and biz dev for indies," and even has his own website. Dan seems to be incredibly passionate about the indie scene, which is no doubt a big loss for Nintendo. He notes that they are in "good hands" however, stating that "people at Nintendo don’t need to be reminded that indie games are important."

Solve your own murder in Why Am I Dead At Sea

You have been murdered, and you are now a ghost. It is up to you to solve the mystery of your own death. No, not like that. No, not like that either. Okay actually, it is sort of like Ghost Trick. It looks like the spirit in...more

Need something free to pass the time? 0h h1 is sort of like binary sudoku

I have always been an unapologetic fan of Minesweeper. I have been playing it for longer than any other single game, and I will be playing it as long as I can imagine. It never changes in any fundamental way, but it always wo...more
