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.

I am tempted to just post the email we got about Strafe (stylized as STRAFE®), because it is a masterpiece of videogame marketing. With phrases like "not for the faint of heart" and "we understand if our game is too real...more

Ironically, the Kickstarter for Hollow Knight looks solid

I have had my eye on Hollow Knight for a few days, but had not yet pulled the trigger on highlighting it. It is a pretty 2D action game (though the color palette is a bit muted for my taste) starring some sort of insect-pers...more
