I have found that, when it comes to indie games, it's best to try and have no expectations whatsoever. Impossible, really, when you see a field full of platformers and space shooters but it's something I that I keep in mind. Icarus Proudbottom in: The Curse of the Chocolate Fountain is a perfect example of why.

I thought this was just going to be a forced-scrolling dodge-em-up. And it is. But Chocolate Fountain is made a little bit deeper through a strange narrative and the introduction of melee combat about a third of the way through. It's also a 20 minute poop joke. 

Not phenomenal, but there's that thing about expectations again.

The Darkest Dungeon gods were kind to me

Hot off its huge Kickstarter success, Darkest Dungeon is already in a playable-enough state to have a demo at PAX East 2014. Although the demo was only a short snippet of what's to come, it was easy to get a sense of the them...more
