Fidel Dungeon Rescue

One of the main reasons we started the Indie Channel was to try and cover as many cool indie games as possible. Alas, some games still slip through the cracks. Case in point: Fidel Dungeon Rescue, an adorable dungeon crawler that somehow passed us by. It just got a big free update, so now seems like a good time to fix this glaring omission.  

It's actually more of a puzzle game than a traditional dungeon crawler. "Find the perfect path through monsters and treasure," its Steam page advises. Basically, you trace a path and your dog protagonist runs it, fighting and looting along the way. It's all about drawing the most efficient path through increasingly difficult and harrowing dungeon floors, and it looks pretty distinctive. 

After its recent 2.0 update, Fidel Dungeon Rescue looks even better. First and foremost, the free update made the path planning phase a little longer and "more forgiving of mistakes so new players can experiment." It also added new worlds, biomes, monsters, sound effects and "[???]," which is always good. Fundamentals like inventory UI were also sharpened with 2.0.

We've just uploaded a huge FREE update with new and improved things, some gathered from your feedback and other ideas we left out of the previous version.

- More time, more forgiving of mistakes so new players can experiment and think things through.
- Three new worlds to explore, each offering a very different experience.
- Three new [???] that lets you play the game in a different ways (this one was tough to do!).
- Three new monsters, new biomes.
- New sound effects, more animations, rewrote the intro levels to help beginners.
- Revised and improved the design all over the place: inventory, monsters, UI, etc.
- More levels, more variety, more surprises!

The exhaustive list would be so long we'd break Steam if we posted it, because according to our records, we did about 900 changes.

We are tying loose ends, getting ready for the next update that will introduce *a lot* of improvements and make the game a bigger.

One of the most impactful changes is a toning down of the ghost, both in terms of time and mistake tolerance.

If you found Fidel too unforgiving, you will find the next version much more accessible.

If you were okay with the ghost, there are a couple new challenges for you...

(now back to work...)
