Fidel Dungeon Rescue is a cute and lean puzzle crawler

A lovely little dog goes down into a deadly dungeon in Fidel Dungeon Rescue [official site], a dungeon-crawling puzzle game released last night. It looks a lovely lean little one, with each level being a one-room grid with monsters, power-ups, and treasure activated by moving onto them.

Today they've announced that they've had Penumbra's Tom Jubert writing their game's story ("leading narrative development").

Indie Fund Is Open For Business

What would you do if you'd made an indie game, and suddenly found yourself impressively wealthy as a result? Build a castle out of diamonds? Buy a zoo just so you can eat all the animals?

What Goes Around… The Indie Fund

Some indie games make a lot of money. Most don't. Worse, many never even get off the ground because they have no funding. The freshly-announced Indie Fund means to change that - it's an angel investment group set up by some of independent gaming's greatest current luminaries (the likes of 2D Boy, Jon Blow, Flashbang...) and intended to help the next generation of indie devs…
