Dan ran the indie program for NOA for nine years but has left the company. He is going Indie. Dan caught a lot of press for being told not to use twitter anymore due to this tweet sympathizing with a fan over region locking on Nintendo's consoles.
"I had been strongly encouraged to stay off of Twitter—or at least say only things that were clearly safe—so after the region-locking comment they just said I needed to stop completely," Adelman said. "When people started complaining that I wasn't active on Twitter anymore, it was suggested that a PR person could just post in my name. I thought that was about the worst idea I'd ever heard, so I left it as is and let the silence speak for itself.
Dan brought over games like World of Goo on Nintendo platforms. A game which i really enjoyed. I am looking forward to what he does next.
