Dan Adelman has been a key player at Nintendo of America for nearly a decade. As head of digital content and development Adelman was the man in charge of Nintendo's indie program, reaching out to make sure that games like Shovel Knight, Cave Story, and World of Goo make it to Nintendo eShop. Recently, he announced that he had decided to part ways with Nintendo, but his work with indie developers continues. 

Adelman continues to help indie developers with the business and marketing end of the industry, and recently announced Axiom Verge as his first post-Nintendo project. We caught up with him for an interview and discussed life at Nintendo, life after Nintendo, the state of the indie market, and more. Check it all out by clicking below!

We recently caught up with Dan for an interview (which you'll be able to read in full soon!), and one of the things he revealed is that he has burned no bridges with Nintendo.

Blizzard Entertainment has revealed in a statement that, rather perplexingly, deleting your World of Warcraft characters isn’t necessarily permanent. Instead, the game will be patched right before the Warlord of Draenor expansion arrives, allowing players to undelete their characters, restoring them to their former glory.

There are some limitations though, and you can read all about them past the jump!

A lot of Destiny players were rather disappointed when Bungie decided to put a stop to farming items in the cave on Earth, saying that "shooting at a black hole for hours on end isn't our dream for how Destiny is played."

However, Guardians everywhere can rejoice, because the gamers on the PS4Trophies YouTube channel have already gone and made a video about a new area where you can farm items to your heart's content.

Ocarina of Time is one of the most beloved games of all time, and Nintendo gave it a 3DS remake a few years ago, but some ambitious fans look to take things in a different direction. Ocarina of Time 2D is a "demake," taking Ocarina of Time and recreating it from scratch (using no pre-existing game engines) in 2D and in the graphical style of A Link to the Past

This isn't the first time someone has attempted something like this, but Ocarina of Time 2D appears to be progressing quite nicely and looks very promising. There's a demo available for the game, as well as a trailer and videos showcasing some of the features. Hit the jump to check it out!

Dan Adelman spent the past nine years working at Nintendo, reaching out to indie developers to help them finish and publish their games. Recently, Adelman left Nintendo to go "indie" himself, and now works one-on-one with developers. Adelman has just announced the first game he'll be helping out with, and although it's not on Nintendo platforms, Nintendo fans should be interested all the same. Axiom Verge is a "Metroidvania" style action-platformer, and Adelman calls it one of the best games in that style that he's seen in years. Hit the jump for more!

With the rousing success and popularity of Hearthstone, many have wondered why Blizzard hasn't taken what seems to be the next logical step - namely, a physical copy. Though Blizzard doesn't seem interested in producing this product, a Chinese manufacturer is. A physical knock-off Blizzard's popular online card game Hearthstone has appeared on Chinese retailer sites, such as Taobao. While a fairly impressive collection, this introduces some valid reasons why a physical copy wouldn't necessarily be a great idea in the first place. Find out why after the jump!

For your daily dose of bizarre news, it looks like Depression Quest has found its way to lasting fame, as someone from within the United States House of Representatives has added it to Wikipedia's list of video games with overwhelmingly bad reviews.

Depression Quest wasn't so much the subject of the recent #gamergate debacle as it was an early participant in a fight that grew well beyond the game and even its creator. I won't go into it much more, because (ironically enough) this story shouldn't be politicized; instead, let's just giggle at the fact that someone who is presumably a US Congressperson bothered to do this in the first place.
